Convenience products are super helpful in allowing us more time to work, socialize and do the leisure activities we love, and pre-shredded cheese is one of the most popular. It is a dream for saving time when whipping up a quick pizza or plate of nachos, however, it does have some distinct differences from regular cheese bought in block form.
As a convenience product, in my humble opinion, pre-shredded cheese is almost unbeatable (my pet peeve is washing cheese graters), however I have rounded up some information about why you may want to reconsider using it.
Is anyone else tempted to follow a keto diet just so you can eat cheese with every meal? Luckily cheese is both nutritious and delicious, and with more and more plant-based cheeses hitting the market, it is an important part of any diet. Many cheeses are high in calories, but as long as you control the quality, the caloric count is no reason to avoid cheese as part a balanced diet.
