ORGANIC PASTURES Raw Cheddar Cheese gives those that experience lactose intolerance discomforts with processed cheese products a delicious, nutritious, and natural alternative. We believe in keeping our products TRULY raw, which involves never heating above 102¡ F. Many other so-called ÒrawÓ cheese is actually heated to temperatures just under the legal pasteurized temperature of 161¡ F, which denatures proteins, enzymes, and kills beneficial bacteria that aids in the digestion of dairy.OP Raw CheddarÕs yellow color comes naturally from year around grass-grazing. Its color will vary with the season; springtime brings the brightest color. 100% ORGANIC. Absolutely NO antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMO anything.
