Ingredients of Cheestrings

DD (and me, quite frankly!) loves Cheestrings. I know, I know, I know... Of course string cheese is just a silly gimmick and real cheese is just as good, if not preferable, but she sees them as a real treat and I'd rather she have that sort of treat than a Mars Bar! I never buy the other brands of string cheese because they are blatantly full of ick, but this brand says "100% cheese" on the label. However, I am wondering what is actually in them - after all, it can be 100% cheese but still have additives! It's what is in the cheese itself that isn't mentioned! I've emailed the company to ask them but no answer - which makes me suspicious

Has anybody ever found out what is in them?

I'll tell you what's not in them.

Just cheese. They advertise very loudly thqat it's just cheese. Horrible rubbery cheese, but then what's so much better about Philadelphia or (YUCK) cottage cheese?

contains added salted cheese powder

Mmm, yummy.

They are just cheese, processed to make it stringy.

(I worked on their website once, it's on there somewhere)

I know it's just cheese, but couldn't the cheese itself have additives in? Cheese isn't an ingredient, it's a mix of ingredients, afaik. It's like saying "contains 100% bread" - but that bread could have several different ingredients.

i had one the other day for the 1st time as wanted to taste what they actually tasted like and it was so salty. Yes my Dd loves them but she have them now and again.

biglips, the coloured ones are very salty but the white ones aren't as bad. I love them, DD barely gets a look in They remind me a bit of halloumi cheese, squeaky and rubbery, mmmmm....

Cheesetrings are mozzarella cheese that been melted and stretched and cooled.

I think Cheese strings add flavourings and colors and vitamins.

You can actually make cheese strings at home (relatively) easily smile
