Here are some organic options for your next grilled cheese.
A grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup makes for a great fall lunch, which might be why the month of October is American Cheese Month.
American cheese was originally just cheddar from the American colonies that got its name from British consumers. With the invention of processed cheese in 1911, American cheese became known as the slices we use today.
If you’re looking for an American cheese without all of the preservatives and additives of a Kraft slice, consider some of the following alternatives:
Applegate Organics has a gluten-free and rBGH-free organic American cheese, as well as a gluten and rBGH-free natural American cheese with no artificial ingredients or preservatives.
