Trader Joe’s And 365 Rennet-Free Shredded Mozzarella.

18 Sep

I usually don’t buy pre shredded cheese because I actually don’t mind shredding cheese plus they tend to charge a lot more for the shredded joints. These days I simply take what I can get, whatever is rennet free works for me 😉 Lately I have been using Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods 365 Brand Shredded Mozzarella. Both are made without rennet and from cows who are not treated with cruel growth hormone injections.

I only use cheese in a melting caliber so when it comes to the melting abilities of these cheeses they both get an A+. Both come in resealable plastic bags, are low moisture and part skim. These rennet-free vegetarian options can be found scattered amongst their rennet-full counterparts. The 365 specifically says ‘Vegetarian’ on the front of the package, the Trader Joe’s one does not. When in doubt read the ingredients and if it says ‘Microbial Rennet’, ‘Vegetable Rennet’ or ‘Vegetable Enzymes’ you are good to go.

Keep Your Cheese, Lose The Rennet.
