Simplify Your Family's Emergency Preparedness

The best shredded cheese for your
long-term food storage!

This is 100% real cheese – promise. It’s the real deal and even melts like regular cheese. 

Unless you are a non-dairy family (which if you are – how do you do live without cheese?!), I definitely recommend having this in your long-term storage.

I love the freeze dried shredded cheddar cheese so much that it made the cut for my top 12 items I keep in my food storage.

Melanie's Notes on Shredded Cheddar Cheese:

Make sure you reconstitute this cheese correctly. I have tried to speed up the process by not waiting the full amount of time to allow it to fully hydrate. The end result was burnt, crispy shreds of cheese on top of our enchiladas. Yuck.

After adding water, throw it in a ziploc bag, stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes and you have totally normal, functional cheese, that will melt rather than burn.
