McLean Meats is proud to offer Certified Organic Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese to complement our McLean Clean and Lean Foods™ deli line.
There are 2 important reasons to choose McLean organic cheese:
- McLean organic cheese does not contain modified milk ingredients
- Our cheese is Organic, which means that the milk is free of antibiotics and growth hormones, plus free of GMO’s and other chemicals associated with conventional farming practices
Did you know that most cheese in Canada is made with modified milk ingredients instead of just milk?
Modified milk ingredients are chemically tampered-with components of milk that have been altered (taken out of their natural state to create bi-products like whey, casein and butter oil). Because milk has a limited shelf life, many food processors turn to modified milk ingredients as a way to increase shelf life and their bottom line.
In addition, most cheese in Canada is pasteurized. Pasteurization is the heating of milk to a specific temperature to kill bacteria. This process can also kill the natural enzymes in raw milk. Non-pasteurized cheese is made from raw milk. Raw milk is alive with beneficial bacteria that aid digestion and protect against disease-carrying organisms. Many raw milk advocates believe that pasteurization has become more about preservation and shelf life, and less about consumer protection.
McLean offers two options: Organic sliced pasteurized Mozzarella for those who want to buy organic cheese but prefer it to be pasteurized, and Organic sliced unpasteurized Cheddar for those who prefer to buy cheese made from raw milk.
So when you go to the grocery store and you’re looking for organic cheese, ask for McLean by name!
