AT WHAT TEMPERATURE IS CHEESE BEST SERVED?
Cheese is best served at room temperature. Remove it from the refrigerator about an hour or two before serving to get the maximum flavor.
CAN I USE CHEESE ONCE IT HAS MOLD ON IT?
Mold can develop once cheese is exposed to air and, although most molds are harmless, it is best to cut away about ¼ inch of the cheese on all sides of the visible mold.
I AM LACTOSE INTOLERANT. IS THERE ANY WAY THAT I CAN STILL EAT CHEESE?
Ripened cheeses, such as cheddar and Swiss, contain about 95% less lactose than whole milk. Also, aged cheeses contain almost no lactose. Look at the nutrition labels on the cheese packages. If the amount of sugars listed is 0 grams, it does not contain lactose.
IS CHEESE REALLY HEALTHY FOR ME?
In moderation, cheese can be a beneficial part of most diets. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends two to three servings from the milk, yogurt and cheese group each day. Cheese is low in carbohydrates, particularly naturally aged cheese. A one-ounce serving of cheddar cheese contains just one gram of carbohydrate. And those on reduced sodium diets can still enjoy cheese with Heluva Good! Reduced Sodium Cheddar Cheese and Heluva Good! Swiss Cheese.
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT I CAN’T DIP IN HELUVA GOOD! ?
We’ve heard it all – sardines, maraschino cherries, fried crickets – you name it, it’s been dipped. We recommend sticking to edible dipping implements, but if you like to dive right in there with a spoon or a finger – we’re not here to judge.
WHAT HELUVA GOOD! PRODUCTS CAN I FREEZE?
The products that you can safely freeze are Heluva Good! Shredded Cheese and String Cheese. Heluva Good! Naturally Aged Block Cheese can also be frozen, but we recommend that it be cut, cubed, sliced or shredded before freezing for best results. We do not recommend freezing Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dip or Sour Cream, as the texture of the items will change due to freezing.
