Cheese is one of the most popular foods on the planet, why?


     What makes it great is the taste, the texture, the aroma ... it is such a complex food with many variations and nuances. But it has a dark side: Animal exploitation, health-related problems such as the consequences of casein, lactose, and cholesterol.


     4MY products can actually be good for your health and reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. They are generally lower in fat than traditional cheeses, and they do not contain gluten or cross-contamination.

     We want you to continue enjoying the pleasures of cheese, without contributing to sustaining its negative impact on the planet. Because this is not a cheese, it's 4MY.

 

What is 4My?

     We are a food-tech startup based in Singapore, dedicated to creating a line of high quality Plant-Based dairy products.

What is YETI?

     YETI is the name of the first 4MY product, a cashew camembert, creamy and fermented at a controlled temperature to develop the flavour nuances that characterise it.

Is the surface of YETI edible?

     Absolutely! As in traditional camembert, the surface is created through the fermentation and growth process of penicillium camemberti. It is extremely healthy and with a smooth and crisp texture reminiscent of champignon.

How should I keep my YETI?

     The ideal temperature for YETI is 4ºC. Just store it in the fridge inside its box, which has been created to avoid sudden changes in temperature.

How long can I keep my YETI once I cut it?

     Like traditional cheeses, surfaces that are exposed to cutting tend to rust and dry slightly. You can remove these parts and consume the rest of the YETI without problems. Remember to always keep it wrapped in its paper, and inside its box at an approximate temperature of 4ºC.
If you see any excess moisture inside the cheese paper, simply remove it with paper towel

May rarely occur, as YETI is a very delicate premium cheese that once cut it and stored it away for few days, thin, fluffy, white coating can grow on the cut part. Nothing dangerous, the cultures inside the YETI are alive and like to go around sometimes ;) just cut off the fluffy part and still enjoy your cheese!! 

My YETI has holes inside, is that normal?

     It is! We have worked hard to develop a recipe that would allow us to create those holes. Our goal is to enhance the flavour and complexity of the different aromatic nuances of YETI. The air spaces retain aromatic molecules that are released more easily by biting or cutting it, leading to a unique sensory experience.

How long can I keep my YETI in the fridge?

     It depends on how much you resist its exquisite taste :). You can find any time "Best Before" at the bottom of the packaging with the expiry date. Normally, Yeti can be in your fridge for about 3 weeks, but we are sure that when you try it, it will disappear from your fridge soon. Remember that it is an artisanal and fresh product, so the ideal is to consume it close to the date you bought it. 


What is the best way to eat my YETI?

     To appreciate all its complexity, we recommend to remove it from the fridge about 5 minutes before consuming it.

Why is YETI so expensive?

     Is it?

     4MY is a new startup launching the first plant-based camembert in Singapore. Our goal is reach as many people as possible, so anyone can enjoy 4MY. But first of all we want to avoid a mess along the way to make this happen, otherwise, none of this would make sense.

     That's why, we've paid special attention to each part of the process that form the final experience of consuming a 4MY product. 

     Our cashew are organic, produced by a small group of farmers, where there is no trace of harmful chemicals or human exploitation.

(it's not just about respecting animals)

     YETI is a product made entirely by hand, under a fermentation process that takes around 3 weeks, transforming those cashews into YETI.

     When YETI reaches its perfect fermentation point, it's kept in a special designed packaging made with biodegradable material, without glue that comes from animals and with vegetable inks.

     One more thing: The relationship between weight and price, place us among the cheapest plant-based artisan cheese on the market.

     4MY is the sum of all these things and that is what you spend your money on, when you choose our products.

 

     Let your footprint inspire others to walk into your footsteps...it's not just a slogan, it's what we want to see in the world and the way we carry out our job every day.

 


Is the packaging sustainable?

     At 4MY we believe that sustainability is the only way to build a better future for all. For this reason we have worked hard to create a biodegradable packaging, with vegetable inks and glue that does not come from animals. However, although our box is completely biodegradable and sustainable, we have found limits on the materials to be used for the 4MY wrap paper, which are extremely necessary to keep the product fresh. We will continue to work hard to try to make our packaging 100% sustainable, and we are open to suggestions or proposals, if you know or are part of a venture that we have overlooked in our search.
