The anti-cake used on Schreiber’s shredded cheese is undergoing a transformation.

How? Schreiber is moving its shredded cheese (natural and process) anti-caking agent from “potato starch and cellulose” to just “potato starch.” Chemical-sounding names like “cellulose” are generally perceived negatively by consumers in comparison to “potato”, which is more commonly known. Removing this from the packaging solves this issue along with adding the benefit of a cleaner nutritional label. Research shows consumers perceive fewer ingredients to be a cleaner product label.

Trials have shown the reformulated anti-caking agent’s performance to be equivalent or preferred for sensory and cooking applications. In addition, this is a cost-neutral change. Altogether, this is a change that customers want, has great performance, and does not cost more.

Schreiber’s shredded cheese has numerous mouth-watering applications. Keep scrolling to find a few ways to incorporate this product into tasty holiday dishes.
