Questions About Our Cheeses
Yes. It is cheese made of nuts rather than dairy milk. Like dairy cheese, it is made by a process of fermentation, using a probiotic culture. It contains no dairy milk, so it’s both good for you and for the planet.
We believe that the use of animals in the production of dairy products is harsh and unsustainable. There is a better way … and that way is plant-based. We’re proud to say our cheeses are completely free from animal products and always will be.
We start with fine Brazilian cashew nuts, grind them and then culture them with a vegan probiotic culture called Lactobacillus Acidophilus. From there we add our herbs and spices for specific flavors. We never add any soy, oils, or gums.

Yes! All of our products are certified kosher parve by KOF-K.
Most of our products are paleo. Please visit our products page for a complete list of ingredients and nutrition facts.
Yes! No gluten is processed or used in our facility.
Our cheese softens when heated and browns when grilled. It can also be fried. However it does not stretch. This is because it is all natural and has no casein (a milk protein) or other melting agents in it.
Yes! Our cheeses contain no milk and therefore no lactose.
We are adding retail stores as fast as we can. If your local store or restaurant does not carry Treeline, please ask them to carry it. When you do, please be sure to mention that our distributors are UNFI, Kehe (Tree of Life), Albert’s Organics, DPI and Seacrest. We receive a lot of requests from stores and restaurants and we do our best to respond to them.
Our packaging is designed to be minimal and to maintain freshness and shelf-life so that our products can be as natural as possible. The French-Style and Cream Cheese cheese containers are made of 50% recycled plastic. All of our packaging can be recycled.
Our products should be consumed within 1-2 weeks (depending on the item) of opening or prior to the sell-by date, whichever comes first.
Our cheeses can be frozen for short periods of time, however their texture will be adversely affected the longer they are frozen. They must be consumed within a few days of defrosting.
Questions About Our Online Store
Due to the high cost of shipping perishable goods – both financial and environmental – shipping individual cheeses is expensive and inefficient. We offer both single flavor packs and curated combination packs. Let us know if there is a combination you’d like and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes!
All cheeses are shipped in insulated packages with cold packs. Your cheeses should arrive cold. Once they have been delivered, they should be refrigerated immediately. We cannot accept responsibility for cheeses that are warm due to being left outside for long periods of time after delivery.
The cheeses will arrive with a minimum of 3 weeks of shelf life. Please consume within one week of sell by date, or opening, whichever is earlier.
Treeline is a fresh, perishable product. We do not ship late in the week to avoid any risk that your package will be delayed over the weekend.
When your package arrives, please remove the cheeses from the box and refrigerate them immediately.
Our shipping boxes are made of recycled and recyclable materials. Please reuse or recycle the box.
The foam insulation is biodegradable and can be reused, broken down with water, or composted.
Unfortunately at this time we are not able to ship outside of the lower 48 of the United States. We plan to expand to Canada and outside of North America very soon! Check in with us for updates.
Our cheeses are perishable which means they need to be delivered within 2 days. Addresses that cannot be reached within 2 days using ground transportation will unfortunately be charged 2 day air fees based on Fedex rates. We are very sorry about this and hope to expand our shipping zones soon!
