Our real organic sliced cheese is crafted with pasture-raised organic dairy from small organic family farms. All we do is cut it into slices to help you save some time. Organic Valley offers seven different sandwich-ready cheese slices—American, Provolone, Baby Swiss, Sharp Cheddar, Spicy Cheddar, Smoky Cheddar and Muenster.

Muenster Slices, 6 oz

A slice of Muenster cheese adds buttery zip to your sandwich, but it also pairs nicely with fruit, crackers, and other snacks. Our sliced Muenster brings serious flavor along with five grams of protein to every plate, and it’s crafted from organic, pasture-raised milk. Made with vegetarian-friendly ingredients and organic annatto for even more peace of mind.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long will the Organic Valley American Cheese Slices stay fresh once opened?

    It's best to use the cheese within five days of opening. Ideal storage temperature is between 33 and 38 F.

    What enzymes are used in the Organic Valley American Cheese Slices?

    The enzyme used is a microbial based, vegetarian rennet produced from Rhizomucor miehei.

    Are the Organic Valley American Cheese Slices homogenized?

    The two milk ingredients in Organic Valley American Cheese are cheddar and butter. Both the cheddar and butter are made from non-homogenized milk.

    Does Organic Valley color their cheese with organic Annato?

    The organic Annatto shrub fruit produces a red pulp that is used to color many different food products such as cheese, butter, confectionery, and fish. We use organic annatto coloring in Organic Valley American Slices (yellow) and Organic Valley Muenster cheese. In the case of our American Slices, the organic annatto is added to the milk so the color is uniform throughout the cheese. The rind of our Muenster is dipped into organic annatto after the cheese is finished so only the rind is colored. Organic Annatto is native to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

    Are cheese slices real cheese?

    Organic Valley cheese slices are real organic sliced cheese, crafted with pasture-raised organic dairy from small organic family farms. All we do is cut it into slices to help you save some time.

    What's the difference between processed cheese and cheese slices?

    Organic Valley processed cheese is made of all real ingredients and like all Organic Valley cheeses, our processed cheese is completely organic. “Processed cheese” doesn’t equate to inferior quality, either — it’s just a different way to make a cheese product.

    • When you buy Organic Valley’s processed American cheese slices, you can be sure of a few things:
    • It’s certified USDA organic.
    • It meets the standard to be called “American.”
    • It’s made with milk from organic pasture-raised cows.
    • The ingredients come from farms that use no antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs.
    • It has only seven ingredients, all of which are organic and vegetarian friendly.
    • Ingredients include organic cultured milk, water, organic butter (organic pasteurized sweet cream, salt), sodium citrate, salt, organic annatto (for color) and vegetarian enzymes (no animal-based enzymes).

    When you do make it to the grocery store to stock up on processed cheese, make it Organic Valley. You can rest assured that it’s certified organic, comes from small family farms and isn’t chock full of ingredients you can’t pronounce. That’s just the Organic Valley way.
