Is Stilton Vegetarian?

Vegetarians often face challenges when attempting to identify suitable cheese options due to the use of animal-derived rennet in cheesemaking. The good news for vegetarian cheese enthusiasts is that most Stilton cheese available on the market is produced using vegetarian rennet.

Vegetarian rennet allows cheese producers to create Stilton without the use of enzymes derived from animal sources. However, it's advisable to check the cheese label or verify with the manufacturer to ensure it aligns with your dietary preferences.
