Organic Pastures Products Does Not Cause Lactose Intolerance
Organic Pastures Raw Cheddar gives those that experience lactose intolerance discomforts with processed cheese products a delicious, nutritious, and natural alternative. We believe in keeping our products TRULY raw, which involves never heating above 102° F. Many other so-called “raw” cheese is actually heated to temperatures just under the legal pasteurized temperature of 161° F, which denatures proteins, enzymes, and kills beneficial bacteria that aids in the digestion of dairy.
TRULY Raw Cheese is More Exciting Than Ever Before
Safeway and Albertsons are changing the retail game! Starting Fall 2018, Safeway and Albertsons in the select stores throughout the Mountain State region (Nebraska, Colorado, S. Dakota, Wyoming, and New Mexico). This was a significant step for the raw milk movement. Organic Pastures has been pioneering the charge for the past 20 years for the Unites States’ legalization of fluid raw milk. Raw Cheddar Cheese has been the raw product to help shift and change minds. Organic Pastures has taken the challenge to do their part for change to ultimately move mountains (literally:) for progress.
100% Natural With No Coloring
Organic Pastures Raw Cheddar’s yellow color comes naturally from year around grass-grazing. Its color will vary with the season; springtime brings the brightest color. 100% ORGANIC. Absolutely NO antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMO anything.
