Reduced Fat Cheese Now Tastes Better
April 9, 2007 12:11pm CST
If you gave up on reduced-fat cheeses long ago, and so pretty much gave up enjoying cheese, now's the time to give the low-fats another chance. Those cheese makers have been tinkering with their cheese recipes, and they've come up with some improved flavors and textures. Reduced-fat Danish Havarti and Norwegian Jarlsberg are particularly good low fat snack cheeses; they're also great for cooking. Note: When you're cooking with a reduced-fat cheese, shred the cheese before adding it to the dish; it will melt more quickly. Melt at a low, steady temperature to keep the cheese's consistency appealing.

I absolutely hate reduced fat cheese, it's like cardboard, and no taste whatsoever, so I just stay away from cheese altogether - even though I love the real thing! I have high cholesterol, so I can't have it. However, I might just try the two you mentioned and see what I think of them. Thanks Kathy.

I do love cheese, but tend to keep away from it because of the fat content. Hubby will eat it by the pound and he doesn't gain an ounce. I have been reluctant to try the reduced fat cheeses, but if you say that they are okay, I will give them a try.
