Natural White Cheddar Cheese Curds taste of fresh mild cheddar with just enough sharpness on the palate that these cheese curds are sure to please all your family and friends. Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery crafts their cheese with only rBST free milk from 450 family farms throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota.The unflavored cheese curds are rich and moist nuggets of fresh (young) cheddar cheese made from fresh pasteurized cow's milk. Culture and rennet are added to acidify and coagulate the milk. This causes milk solids (curd) to separate from the liquid (whey). The curd is cut into smaller pieces and the whey is released as it cooks further. The curds are then drained, pressed, and salted.
A defining characteristic of cheese curds is their 'squeak' when bitten into...and its just plain endearing! Pair with your favorite meats and vegetables for a simple and healthy lunch, snack, or dinner.
Ellsworth Creamery Cheddar Cheese Curds appeal to the health-conscious consumer as they are crafted using the highest quality farm certified rBST free milk. They are gluten-free, high in calcium and protein, contain no added sugars, no carbs, and zero trans fats.
