Award Winning Reduced Fat Cheeses

Ahhhh cheese. We love our cheese. The addition of cheese to a dish or simply served alongside a glass of wine is a pleasure. But it makes sense to cut back on our consumption or at least buy cheese that is reduced in fat since cheese is one of the biggest sources of harmful saturated fat in the U.S. diet.

I know many of you cheese lovers are skeptical that reduced fat cheeses CAN be delicious as their full-fat counterparts. So, I have compiled a list of some award-winning cheeses for all you turophiles.

Every year hundreds of cheese makers submit thousands of different products to the American Cheese Society (ACS) competition. The highest quality cheeses are given recognition. Here are the 2012 and 2013 winners in the reduced fat category.
