I had nachos with Daiya on Friday night and then I vomited them up a few hours later. I thought I made myself ill by swallowing a bit of neti-pot salt water and then coughing a ton so I had nachos with the same Daiya last night. Again with the vomiting a few hours later. It wasn't anything else I ate (my friend had nachos with cheese with the same toppings/beans). I'm wondering if I should tell the Co-op where I bought it that it made me puke. I've eaten nachos with Daiya before and never gotten sick, and I also eat it on pizza every Wednesday. I'm not sure if I am suddenly intolerant of it or if it was a bad batch. Any thoughts? Does Daiya make anyone else puke?

isn't that funny? we don't get cheez here and when we were in the US this past summer, the kid and I both bought and ate Daiya and both got sick. I just assumed it was us not being used to the stuff (we later ate some nachos with what i assume was daiya and we were OK). We didn't buy any more and I honestly don't really plan to eat it again.

I've heard of people getting stomach upsets from it. I got sick from a Daiya burrito from Whole Foods last summer but I think that was straight up food poisoning from bacteria. Lately when I've eaten Daiya I've been ok, but I'm not the hugest fan so I try to avoid it.

I've heard a lot of people complain about Daiya. I was just thinking that Daiya has ruined vegan restaurants. There is a restaurant near here that started using Daiya and somehow... many of their entrees have it. It seemed that vegan restaurants used to be creative but it seems faux cheese has stifled that creativity.

I get stomach cramps after I eat mac and cheese with it. Although when I make pizza I'm fine since I use about 1/10th of what most people use on pizza.

I like Daiya, but I can only eat it in small to moderate quantities. It's never made me throw up, but it does tend to bother my stomach if I use too much.

Never had this happen to me. Daiya does spoil pretty quick, maybe your batch got spoiled. Was this the cheddar kind?

I think a lot of fat in one sitting can make anyone feel like crepe.

Also, this stuff seems to mold pretty fast. Did you use it "new" or had it been sitting in the fridge for a few days?

i really dont think its the oil, because i eat deep fried food on a regular basis in the fall. well all the time, but in the fall its a main component of my diet and im fine. theres just a price to pay for good fake cheese!

It was the cheddar kind. On Friday night I had just opened it, last night it had been in the fridge since Friday rubber-banded shut. There wasn't any visible mold on it.

Daiya didn't make me sick, but I didn't like the texture.

I would be concerned about spoilage and bacterial growth - it only lasts 7-10 days once opened. If it was a freshly opened bag, I would contact the store where you bought it. If they get other complaints, it could be a bad or improperly handled batch (for example, if it wasn't refrigerated during shipping).

I think the key is to not use too much. I never put as much Daiya on things as I used to with dairy cheese. I felt a bit sick after eating it the first time, but I'm fine when I use it at home because I limit the amount I put on.

Hm, never had issues here. Sorry to hear people getting sick from it! I wonder which it is- sensitivity or contamination...

I don't really like Daiya that much, but have never gotten sick from it. The only things I like with Daiya are Amy's macaroni and cheese, and a local pizza place uses it. Otherwise I stay away from Daiya.

hahahahahaha!

Since it was a fresh bag and I've never been sick from it before I think I'll go to the Co-op and tell them that it made me ill. I didn't use a ton because the texture grosses me out when there's a lot of it.

I'd definitely tell your co-op it made you sick, and ask what action they're willing to take (like pulling the rest off of the shelves).
Most stores would probably try to sell the rest anyways. The superstore by my parents house had rotten organic veganaise on the shelves for ages. Everytime I went I'd take them all off, leave them at the check out, and tell whoever was working that it was spoiled and if someone ate it like that it would make them really sick.

I totally agree. The saddest thing is when restaurants replace previously delicious options such as house made vegan cheese sauces with Daiya. I am so bored of vegan food tasting like Daiya.

I like Daiya in teeny amounts as a condiment. I just put my bags straight into the freezer and they last for months. The few times I've had it in larger amounts I've felt queasy afterward. It may be worth telling your co-op, but if it wasn't bad, it was probably just your body reacting to it.

I've never reacted with any sickness before (and definitely never vomiting), so that's why I think it's a bad bag or something.
