- How an experiment became a project -
At this point we would like to briefly introduce ourselves. We are a family that has been dealing extensively and intensively with the topics of health, the environment and animal welfare for several years. We came to believe that we have an influence on all of these points with our lifestyle and our daily meals. However, at first we couldn't imagine doing without everything that had been on our menu up until then. We considered the project to be very difficult, if not impossible, and initially had doubts about the success of our experiment. In late 2016, however, it became increasingly clear. Our values, beliefs and world views no longer coincided with our consumption of animal "products". At the beginning of 2017 we finally switched to a purely plant-based diet and were amazed at how easy it was for us. It's not a waiver. On the contrary. It enriches our lives with new tastes, dishes, experiences and many new insights. We eat much more varied and colorful than before. We feel great and love the diverse and delicious ingredients and dishes of plant-based cuisine.
Like so many others, we really enjoyed the cheese over our pasta dishes. So we tried out some vegan parmesan alternatives. Unfortunately, none of these products met our taste. So we tried to recreate the texture and taste of grated, hard, aged cheese ourselves. What we managed to do is not really a cheese, but a very successful creation that we love today just as much as we loved grated cheese back then. We call it nut mesan. A spicy, slightly cheesy, fine nut crumble that goes wonderfully with many dishes.
Many friends and acquaintances tried our nut mesan. Everyone loved it and wanted to know where to buy it. This positive feedback spurred us on to want to make something big out of our creation. We are convinced that even people who do not (yet) eat a purely plant-based diet will love our nut mesan.
