[quote="fredrikw"]hmm, there was a greek cheese circulating here in Stockholm some time ago, and we all thought it was vegan and we ate loads of it, until they suddenly introduced casein in the ingredient list, probably was in there all along
I have no idea if this is the same, I know it's a bit ignorant to assume there is just one Greek cheese, but just a word of warning, might be good to check with the manufacturer directly. even if it doesn't contain 'milk' as an ingredient it might still not be vegan.
Like I said, there are many sorts of Greek cheese here in Serbia, many of them being "LENT" ("Posno" in Serbian) - main target group are orthodox christians who follow these rules of lent...Anyway, all of them have casein and like Fredrik says, for some of them, when they appeared, there was only plant fat, water and salt on declaration, but later they got more ingredients
as our rules for marking food became a little bit more strict (closer to those of EU)...so, I still think it is a risk
