The Savvy Eater: why natural cheddar is the big cheese


The Balderson cheddar cheese, left, is a healthier choice because it contains less sodium. As for The Laughing Cow, its sodium level is equal to two slices of multigrain, thin crust Quattro Formaggio pizza from Panago.

Cheese is a healthy snack when eaten in moderation. It is an excellent source of protein and calcium. However, not all cheese products contain the same ingredients. The Laughing Cow may be lower in calories and fat, but it is a processed cheese product, and contains preservatives. The Balderson cheddar is an aged, naturally made cheese, which also contains less sodium. Remember, the ingredient list is just as important to read as the nutritional information.
