Fun Facts

  1. Mozzarella Shredded is the staple ingredient on any pizza pie. With its smooth consistency and even smoother taste, this delicious, easy-melting formaggio italiano is ideal for home-baked pizza, oven-fresh pasta, and bite-sized hors d’oeuvre.
  2. Use our Mozzarella Shredded Whole-Milk variety for a buttery rich flavor and good meltability!
  3. Because it is made from milk, mozzarella cheese is a dairy product that provides important nutrients in a healthy diet. According to the World’s Healthiest Foods website, 1 ounce of mozzarella made with part skim milk contains 72 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. This serving also provides almost 7 grams of protein but less than 1 gram of sugar or carbohydrates.
  4. One ounce of mozzarella contains niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, biotin and vitamin B6. Because these are water-soluble vitamins, the body does not store them, so eating mozzarella cheese satisfies an immediate nutritional need. They are important to maintain healthy skin and vision and the formation of red blood cells. Mozzarella also contains fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D and E, which are important for bone growth, absorption of calcium and protection of cell membranes.
  5. Mozzarella is created from milk, but the type of milk varies among cheeses.
