US: Sargento rolls out reduced-sodium cheeses

By | 3 March 2010

US cheese specialist Sargento Foods has introduced a series of reduced-sodium products targeted at health-conscious consumers in the US.

The six varieties, which Sargento claimed had 25% less sodium than regular cheese, include Mild Cheddar shredded cheese and Mozzarella shredded cheese.

"With almost 50% of consumers reading food labels for sodium content, we're responding to their interest in lowering their daily intake by offering reduced sodium Sargento cheeses," said marketing director Chris Groom.

"However, we only wanted to launch the line if we could still provide the great tasting natural cheese that consumers love, which this line does successfully."

Available in slices, shreds and snacks, the cheeses will be available nationwide from this month.
