Low-fat/Reduced-sodium Cheeses

  1. Excellent flavor, texture and melting characteristics
Versatile-melt Characteristics for Diverse Product Applications
Different product applications often require cheeses to deliver specific melting characteristics. Our process-cheese products will achieve the melting properties that best fit your processing system or the desired end-product profile.

Restricted-melt Process Cheeses
These products are specially formulated to soften at higher temperatures without melting completely. Applications include items that are baked or fried, such as fried cheese appetizers.

Standard-melt Process Cheeses
Designed to melt, but at a higher temperature than quick-melt products, standard-melt process cheese can replace natural cheese in many applications. Applications include slicing, cutting into sticks and shredding.

Quick-melt Process Cheeses
These products melt easily, making them suitable for many general product applications. Our quick-melt process cheeses are especially well suited for sauces and dips.
