What is Raw Milk Sharp Cheddar Cheese?
Organic Valley Raw Milk Sharp Cheddar Cheese is a white cheddar, aged a minimum of 8 months. This cheese won first place at the U.S. Cheese Championship, and third place at the World Cheese Championship in London, England in 2005. The difference in our “raw milk” cheeses is in the way our pasture-raised cow’s milk is processed before the cheese making even begins. Referred to as “sub-pasteurization,” our organic milk is “heat treated” to the threshold of pasteurization without actually being pasteurized. All of our raw milk cheeses are held for 60 days to ensure that no undesirable bacteria exist. Our production and packaging facilities are all licensed and certified for food processing, according to the USDA’s organic standards – the most strict standards in America’s food industry. Cheddar is an immensely popular snack cheese, enjoyed with bread and crackers. Add Cheddar to soups, sauces and baked dishes, or make a traditional toasted cheese sandwich or top a baked potato.
