    Default Fat-free Feta Cheese - review

    I used it last night on my fave feta-spinach-tomato-mushroom deal over
    penne. It TASTED ok, but just didn't melt or soften like the regular
    feta. It was also very dry and tough to cube. I think it's a good
    idea for those who must really watch the fat grams, but, para mi, I'll
    go back to the regular feta.

    It would be a real bear to try to spread on, say, crackers or
    toast. HTH.

    It's probably just fine for those who would crumble it and don't apply
    heat.

    Feta? I never do that with feta.

    That stuff sounds nasty. Fat free cheese is not cheese, any more than fat
    free half and half is half and half. It's not cheese, it's processed mystery
    food which may or may not have been cheese at one time.

    I wish there was a truth in labeling law covering this kind of stuff.
    "Processed cheese flavored dairy solids" might be acceptable.

    No. It's a stupid idea for everyone.

    True all of this! Fat free cheese is like sugar free candy. Begs the
    question, "What am I putting in my mouth then?"

    Not that I would ever put either in *my* mouth!

    It's all very well denigrating fat-free cheese but some of us must
    restrict our fat intakes severely and cannot eat regular cheese, like it
    as we may do. I do miss real aged natural cheeses but a small serving
    may be 30% or more of the suggested daily intake of saturated fat for a
    person *without* medical problems. Also, if a person is diabetic they
    may well be restricted to sugar-free candy and sneering at them is
    pointless and unfair.

    I agree that most fat-free cheeses are poor imitations of the real
    things but they are the best available to people like me. Fat-free Feta
    is not bad sprinkled on salads. Kraft fat-free shredded mozzarella can
    be acceptable when making a pizza and it can also be melted in a
    microwave and then cooled into a solid block. Kraft does not seem to
    sell solid fat-free mozzarella (or, if it does, supermarkets don't stock
    it.) The big problem with fat-free cheese is that the flavor of real
    cheese comes from fatty acids formed from regular milk.

    What does that have to do with mis-labeling fat free processed dairy solids
    as cheese?

    Who was doing that?

    DING DING DING WINNER! Imitation is the key word. "Imitation Cheese" would
    be an acceptable label designation.
