Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Organic Valley have Thick Cut Shredded Cheese and Finely Shredded Cheese?

Thick Cut shredded cheese performs better in a majority of shredded cheese applications. It provides a better melt, a better gooey texture, and a yummier cheesy flavor in every bite. You'll find it greatly improves your hot, cheesy dishes from nachos and enchiladas to pizzas and lasagnas and all kinds of casseroles. We do also offer our 3 Cheese Mexican and Mozzarella as Finely Shredded as there are certain applications, typically where the cheese is added post-cooking or post-prep such as tacos, pastas and salads.

What kinds of pasteurized cheese does Organic Valley produce?

Organic Valley produces a variety of hard and semi-soft cheeses, as well as Ricotta, Cottage, and Cream Cheese. These cheeses are crafted from organic, non-homogenized, pasteurized milk that has been heated to a temperature of at least 165 degrees to kill bacteria that causes spoilage. We offer the following varieties (see our product page at Cheese for more details):

  • American
  • Baby Swiss
  • Blue Cheese
  • Cheddar, Mild & Sharp
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Cream Cheese
  • Feta
  • Mozzarella
  • Muenster
  • Parmesan
  • Pepper Jack
  • Provolone
  • Ricotta
  • 3 Cheese Italian Shredded Cheese
  • 3 Cheese Mexican Shredded Cheese
What are the health benefits of eating organic cheese?

For individuals and families seeking high nutritional value and reduced risk of exposure to the toxins associated with factory farming practices, organic cheese is a healthy option.

  • The organic milk we use to make our Organic Valley Raw Cheeses comes from pasture-raised cows and is an excellent source of easily absorbed calcium, as well a good source of protein, phosphorus, and riboflavin.
  • Consuming Organic Valley dairy products minimizes your risk of exposure to antibiotics, toxic pesticides, synthetic hormones, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Ethically Sourced from Small Organic Family Farms
We believe in doing dairy right. When you choose Organic Valley, you're getting high-quality organic milk ethically sourced from farms that respect the land and all the plants and animals that live on it.
