PLYMOUTH, Wis. Sargento is cutting the salt in its cheeses.
With 25% less sodium than traditional natural cheeses, Sargento reduced-sodium varieties are full of flavor and feature the same great taste as Sargento's traditional cheeses, the company said.
"Reducing sodium intake is a critical topic discussed by government agencies, health professionals and consumers alike," said Chris Groom, director of core marketing meal enhancers at Sargento. "When it comes to finding ways to lower sodium intake, Americans need easy, flavorful solutions. Sargento is continuing its heritage of innovation by being the first and only nation brand with reduced-sodium natural cheeses in the dairy case."
Sargento reduced-sodium natural cheeses are available in several varieties: mild cheddar shredded cheese, mozzarella shredded cheese, colby jack slices, provolone slices, colby jack snacks and string cheese snacks.
In related news, Sargento also has launched pepper jack slices and mild cheddar snacks, which now are available in stores.
