This cheese taste just like normal cheddar you'd buy in the supermarket. Incredible that it's 2g of fat per 100, I could eat this whole block and that'd be less fat than a small bag of crisps. Melted it on food in the microwave too, melts like normal cheese. This cheese is going to change the lives of everyone on a cut...
...then this is the product for you. I had seen the reviews that claimed this tasted like real cheese, and it does - but not necessarily good cheese. But what do you expect? It is incredibly low in fat compared to the real thing, and is higher in protein. As a healthier alternative it is fine. The consistency is quite rubbery and the cheese is almost translucent. The taste is comparable to Value mild cheddar, so if you are expecting the mature cheddar hit then you will be very disappointed (and also a little over-optimistic). The taste is just about passable in a cheese and pickle sandwich. When melted it does the same thing that most low-fat cheeses do, forming a semi-solid puddle rather than the oozing deliciousness that you would hope for. It works well if grated into/onto an omelette. All in all, it's a reasonable product. If you really, really love cheese then you may be prepared to accept the taste as a worthwhile trade-off for the lack of fat, but then again, you may also be so horrified that you go running off to buy a wheel of brie. But I would suggest giving it a try, if you are looking for some cheesey goodness without the negative dietry impact. And if you are a mild cheddar person then go for it, you'll probably love it. I'm not sure I'll buy it again, simply because I prefer a much stronger cheddar.Goes Well With:Omelettes
The cheese is no longer sent via a chilled consignment so it was spoiled when arrived.
Bought some of this opened the packet after a few days, the cheese was green with mould! Complained to my protein and they did nothing about it! Shocking Goes Well With:Cardboard
As a current WeightWatchers member finding a cheese low fat tasty cheese was difficult....until someone discovered this one. Fabulous find. Although given how many WW members have found it, you'll need to be well stocked!! Brilliant. Goes Well With:Pasta, pizza, toast, omelette
Disappointed by the early use by date on the cheese received. Normally they can last at least 3 weeks, the use by date was less than a week and a half to the use by date!
Once you get past the fact that this isn't premium cheddar, as a vegetarian that doesn't eat eggs, this is a really effective way to up your protein intake quickly whilst limiting fat intake. You can eat this as a block of cheese and for me it's nicer than a protein shake and surprisingly moreish but be careful with portion sizes. A 100G block will give you 37G protein, however, also 2G salt, which is 1/3 your recommended max intake of 5 - 6G. If you combine this with two slices of the Dr Zak's high protein bread total salt would be 3.2G, and that's just potentially one meal for the day. If the manufacturers could look into a low salt version that would be great, but I'm not sure what that would do to the taste. The moreish factor may be due to the salt content and I did find myself reaching for a drink soon after eating it. Texture is slightly rubbery, but not as rubbery as 'cheesestrings' (only thing I could think of!). I'd say give it a go and see what you think if like me, you're looking to up your protein outside of the shakes and don't eat eggs. Otherwise, I'd say just eat more eggs!Goes Well With:Protein Bread, or a block on it's own
Just finished my 3rd 350g block, a fan you might think, well not if you like the true flavours of cheese. It has absolutely no taste, you may as well be eating one of those semi translucent erasers that found there way on to students desks, back when we used pencils and drew diagrams. So you will be thinking, why have you worked your way through nearly a kilo of the stuff? I'm not on an excess protein kick, nor am I on an extreme low fat diet, though if the claim of 2% fat is true, its a tick in the box for anyone concerned about cholesterol levels. I am intrigued by the calcium levels, and that, for me, and anyone with losing bone mass, has to find this product of interest. I've always eaten cheese generally, in a measured way, I love to discover the subtlety of flavours available, strong but not necessarily savage, nutty, mellow, textures that are firm or crumbly, the occasional Stilton wedge. This stuff is non of those, so you don't need to pretend its some wonderful Cheddar that tastes divine and sits in your refrigerator as a great cheese. What it is, is a panacea that meets certain expectations and desires of its users, those on high protein diets, crash and hold diets, and in my case, stemming the tide of a life of wear and tear. I'm certainly not going to be eating this stuff, to the detriment of real cheese, there are too many pleasures to miss. As an aside, I stumbled on this brick of milky, faded yellow stuff, in a local 'low cost' supermarket, it was a 'special offer', and as such I have not found it easy to find, I'm now down to the last 350g, and in truth won't miss it on the grounds of taste. The point is, where do you find it on the shelf, I'm certainly not keen enough to order by post, or confident it would find its way through the delivery system in a fine and edible state. In summary, if it floats your boat, all well and good, but don't claim its a fantastic cheese, it isn't. I reviewed this after my first try, my opinion has not been swayed by eating more Goes Well With:Have not tried anything more than artisan crackers and usually a rye/sourdough bread, at least they have some flavour. I would guess, if grated and left to 'dry' in the fridge, it might pass as a pizza and pasta sprinkle, but I stick with Parmesan. Anyone tried this in a mouse trap? it would stay on the spike well!
I believed the reviews on here saying it tastes like normal cheese, it's not even a little bit true. The taste and texture is so bad the only way it's palatable is if you include regular cheese with it, which defeats the point. The nutritional information is great but I bought this stuff 2 months ago and 2 thirds of it is sitting in my fridge untouched because I can't bring myself to eat that plastic and chemical tasting yellow lump. I'm going to try the half fat cheese I hope that is better but I genuinely can't believe the reviews saying this tastes alright, it is bad.
Great taste ...good for melting.Goes Well With:spuds ..topping for shepherds pie ...snacking..
I stumbled across this 'cheese' by accident, found on the shelf of a local supermarket. Intrigued, by its low fat claim and proclamation of flavour, I thought why not give it a try. Now, my measure of any food product is primarily TASTE, otherwise, why bother? The high protein 'fashion' is not my concern, low fat, very desirable, it means in essence a decent portion, without the nagging concern, what was not apparent from the pack, was levels of calcium, a useful measure for both growing children and aging adults. This I am pleased to say, I found on my site search, and a very healthy level of calcium is claimed. This, for me is good news, when measured against the claimed ow fat levels, a sort of double bonus. Thats where the good news ends, because, as I started, taste is always going to be a driver, and this stuff lacks flavour big time. Its the sort of low level, mild mannered 'soap' you find in many supermarket brands of 'mild cheddar', which really is nothing like Cheddar, it does not have to bite your head off to have true depth of flavour. Indeed there are some wonderful goa tcheeses out in the market, that are not going to attack your tongue but still have a deep and satisfying taste. The fact that this cheese, is a bit 'rubbery' does not bother me, if the rich flavours were there, but they're not, so the 'plastic' texture, whilst easy to slice, adds to the negative side. Because I need to take Calcium, and I like cheese generally, but am careful about quantity, this sort of wins a reprieve for the time being, I will try it in cooked food maybe, as an alternative to haloumi, sat astride a Portbello mushroom and grilled, the jury is out, but surely its not beyond saving with a bit of a boost, lift it up from a mild indifference, into at least a mellowed marvel. Goes Well With:Does it? thats the question, yet to be proven.
I love !! this product. I'm a diabetic and disabled, with limited mobility l also need to loose weight so this product is a life saver . While my family were eating cheese on toast or mac"n"cheese l was unable to share thier meals as the carbs and fat content was too high . With myprotein low fat cheese l can now enjoy eating cheese meals and snack on it as well because with no carbs and virtually no fat it more than appropriate for me. In 7 weeks l have lost 5kg and l'm eating cheese with everything . It honestly has changed my life! !!! Goes Well With:Everything! !!!!
This stuff is delicious, it's just like real cheddar and the price is about the same too. There's literally no reason not to switch to this if you're looking for a lower fat cheese. The texture is a bit like a cheddar that's been left our the wrapper in the fridge, more dry than creamy, cause it's got no fat in it. I happen to really like this though. Goes Well With:Pickle, salad, ham, dipped in boiled eggs!
I don't have a sugar tooth and I find beef jerky / protein bar far too expensive... What a discovery ! I like the taste and texture, even use it melted in my sandwichs.. I'm addicted and use it nearly with all my meals I think the next step to improve it would be to add different flavor (like a black pepper cheese, herbs, cajun etc... ) Thanks for this great product !!! 4KG on the way ;-)Goes Well With:Bread Pasta Crackers Cherry tomatoes
I find this cheese lovely, it melts really well and is great value.Goes Well With:Baked potatoes, butternut squash chips, with MyProtein Lasange sheets
I heard about this cheese on a facebook weight watchers page and sooo glad I did. Its brilliant to have such a low fat cheese and it melts like a dream. Imagine my despair when I saw that it was out of stock, I need this in my life! It feels and tastes like chedder and is a must for anyone watching their weight or wanting more protein. Goes Well With:Almost anything
I'm member of a weight watchers group on Facebook and everyone is raving about this wonderful cheese! You can eat 26g for 0 it's so tasty and versatile. Will definitely buy more. Goes Well With:Cheese toasties
First of all, I don't normally submit review but this really does deserve one. Okay so cheese is my absolute downfall. I love it - with and on everything so this is my holy grail. The nutritional values are just incredible so you'd imagine it to taste awful. However it tastes just as good if not better than normal full fat cheese. The price is good and even better if you manage to get a reduction. Honestly if you're a cheese lover and debating whether or not to get it then do.. Because who doesn't love the idea of guilt free cheese?!Goes Well With:Jacket potatoes, cheese toasties, pasta, on its own.
For a start, I can't find any other hard cheese with a fat content of 2% this stuff is a miracle! It has the flavour of a mild cheddar and you can grate it, melt it, slice it, eat it raw or cooked. And it's not massively expensive compared to other supermarket brand cheese! It has a slightly processed taste, similar to a babybel but considering the nutritional benefits, it's well worth it.Goes Well With:Everything..
I thought it was worth a try, high protein, low fat cheese, what could there be not to like but sadly this rubbery substance hardly merited the name cheese.
