|Trader Joe's Shredded Swiss & Gruyere|
I have a feeling, I’m late to the party on this one. But, “Better late than never!” I just discovered this product last week at Trader Joe’s: A cheese blend of shredded Swiss and Gruyere. If you’ve been following a low sodium diet for a while, you’ll immediately understand why this product is such a big deal. Swiss cheese is naturally low in sodium, so it’s one cheese that we loso-ers can eat without too much worrying. And it’s readily available at local grocery stores. Usually either sliced in the self-service deli section. But you can also ask the folks at the full-service deli to sell you a solid chunk. Unfortunately, most of my local stores don’t stock shredded Swiss.
Seeing this product made me think that maybe – just maybe – the TJ shreds could save me time and effort. Then, when I checked the sodium content, I knew I had to get some. Only 55 mg sodium per ¼ cup (28 g/1 oz). So I promptly plopped two packages in my basket.
