Trader Joe's recently expanded its cheese selection with the debut of new Lite Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
Mozzarella is one of the most versatile cheeses and having a bag of pre-shredded mozzarella can be a major time saver when cooking. Now consumers can enjoy the delicious taste of mozzarella and the convenience of pre-shredded cheese in a lighter format. Unlike regular mozzarella, Trader Joe’s Lite Shredded Mozzarella contains 60% less fat and 25% fewer calories. Despite the lower fat content, the cheese is still firms and chewy, and still melts into a perfectly gooey texture when heated. As Trader Joe's puts it, "Delicately buttery in flavor, this Lite Shredded Mozzarella can be subbed in for any application that calls for regular mozzarella, like pizzas, patty melts, lasagnas or casseroles."
