2016 Update: Trader Joe's no longer carries this product. It's a shame because it was such a treat when making sandwiches. Another example of the "easy come, easy go" frustrations of low sodium shopping.
If you are on a lower sodium diet, you know how problematic cheese can be. It's very difficult to find truly low sodium cheese choices in your local grocery stores. Usually plain, old-fashioned Swiss cheese is much lower in sodium than other cheeses. The same goes for fresh mozzarella. Safeway sells its very low sodium Primo Taglio lacy Swiss cheese slices and Lucerne no-salt-added cottage cheese.
But still, dealing with cheese is a challenge. That's why I got so excited to discover the Swiss & Colby combination at Trader Joe's. The cheese slices are very similar to Safeway's Primo Taglio lacy Swiss slices and the Alpine Lace Swiss slices. However, it's a marbled cheese with orange and cream colored streaks. A serving is one slice, and the slice contains only 35 mg sodium. Now that's great news!
The slices are large, thin and lacy, full of holes. Perfect for sandwiches, wraps, or omelets. Many thanks to Mei who let me know about this product. If you've got a Trader Joe's nearby, check this cheese out.
