BUFFALO, N.Y. After released reports that Americans may not be eating foods high enough in omega-3 fatty acids, Sorrento is coming through with a cheese fortified with omega-3 fats, Sorrento +Plus String Cheese with Omega-3s.
Sorrento brand +Plus Omega-3 string cheese is processed from milk that contains high levels of docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, which are common sources of omega-3 fats. +Plus Omega-3 string cheeses also are high in protein.
Susan Thomas, marketing manager of snack cheese at Sorrento Lactalis, said, ”The new [Plus] Plus Omega-3 snack cheese responds to consumer demand for foods that offer nutrition, health, convenience and taste all rolled into one … With this new addition to the Plus line, consumers can enjoy the same delicious, fresh cheese taste that Sorrento is known for and feel good about eating healthy at the same time."
The +Plus Omega-3 snack cheeses come in 1-oz servings with six servings per pack. They retail from $3.99 to $4.29 per package.
