New, Wonderful Low Protein Cheese
It looks like real cheese and the taste isn't far behind. It is low protein mozzarella and cheddar cheese from Ener-G Foods. A great new product which comes in 3 lb. blocks. The cheddar cheese has 1 gm protein per ounce and 80 mg leucine. The mozzarella cheese has less than 1 gm protein and 63.3 mg leucine per ounce. It keeps in the refrigerator a little longer than regular cheese and can be frozen.
Use this low protein cheese just as you would regular cheese. It does not melt, just softens, but is very attractive and tasty in salads, grated on pizza, sliced for sandwiches, and used in mountain pies. Check Ener-G Foods, Inc. under Resources.
