FAQs

WHERE CAN I FIND THE INGREDIENTS AND NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION FOR YOUR PRODUCTS?

Head to LEARN MORE to explore each product in more detail, including its ingredients and nutritional info.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN?

Yes.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SUSTAINABLE?

We believe that plant based dairy alternatives are key to building a more sustainable and secure food supply chain for future generations. 

We choose not to use nuts in our products because they're extremely resource-intensive to process (and use far too much water). Cauliflower scraps + hemp, on the other hand, are far more environmentally resilient. 

All our ingredients are sourced locally and our products are manufactured in California. 

Grounded is a proud member of the Upcycled Foods Association.



WHAT'S YOUR BEEF WITH DAIRY?

Put it this way: the future of dairy is completely unsustainable. The amount of water and environmental resources needed to manufacture dairy cheese is ridiculous...and from an economic perspective, small-scale farmers don't get compensated fairly for their efforts. The entire system is archaic and inefficient.

WILL IT MELT?

Only if you heat it.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE FOR PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES?

All Grounded cheese is manufactured in a certified gluten free and exclusively plant based facility. They do not contain soy or common treenuts, however, they do contain coconut oil so are not recommended for people who are sensitive to coconut.

WILL HEMP GET ME HIGH?

No. What you're looking for is THC, the intoxicating cannabinoid in marijuana. Hemp doesn't contain a significant amount of this, and as such, it is unlikely to lead to wild and psychedelic cheese dreams.

WHAT IS GLUCONO DELTA LACTONE?

It's like, the worst sounding thing on our ingredient panel right? Especially if you abbreviate it as GDL. The good news is that it's a common and safe vegetable-based ingredient that's used as a substitute for enzymes in cheese, tofu and baked goods. It's created by microbial (bacteria or yeast) fermentation of a carbohydrate source, and is 100% vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

If you're freaked out by the marketing propaganda surrounding ingredients you can't pronounce...then it's time to learn! Here's how to pronounce it, and here's a little more light reading about it. 

HOW DARE YOU CALL THIS CHEESE IF IT'S NOT DAIRY!

We've got some disappointing news for you about the structural composition of hot dogs. 

WHEN WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE?

After your order is processed, your cheeses will be shipped with free two day shipping. Processing may require 1-4 days depending on location.

You'll receive a tracking number once your cheese ships. For any further questions about your order, hit us up at orders@groundedfoods.com.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS AVAILABLE WHOLESALE?

Yes. Contact us at ground.control@groundedfoods.com for pricing, or visit our RangeMe profile.

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

Grounded cheeses are only available within the U.S. at this stage. 

We’re very conscious of the overall environmental footprint we make in producing Grounded products. For that reason, exporting our products to the other side of the world just doesn’t make sense right now.
