How difficult do you think if could be to dehydrate a slice of cheese, then make it crispy and put it in a bag for the world to enjoy? Quite a bit, it turns out. So much so that a new technology had to be utilized for Moon Cheese Snacks to be created and launched.
The joint partnership that owns Moon Cheese, NutraDried, says they have “crunchified” the actual cheese in the product, which is pretty much the only ingredient: Cheddar Cheese [Pasteurized Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes, Annatto (Vegetable Color)].
Says the firm: “Dr. Tim Durance, Chairman and co-CEO, EnWave Corporation is the innovator behind the company’s dehydration technology. While at the University of British Columbia in 1996, Dr. Durance developed the first prototype Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV”) machine for dehydrating food and nutraceuticals…Using patented technologies we remove only the moisture from cheese while keeping all the nutrition and flavour.”
There are currently three flavors of Moon Cheese available: American Cheddar, Pepper Jack and Gouda
There are about 200 stores in North America where you can find it, such as at Kroger’s Fred Meyer and Quality Food Centers stores across Washington, Idaho and Oregon, plus online here:
