About five years ago the Chairman of Wyke Farms, John Clothier, son of Ivy, was told he had high cholesterol and must change his diet. Unbeknown to John, his son Richard set about creating an alternative recipe to replace his everyday favourite, Mature Cheddar. Eventually, one of the test recipes tasted so much like Cheddar that even John, a devoted cheese connoisseur, was impressed.
Even more impressive, Super Light (the new name for Leskol Half Fat) has 90% less cholesterol than Cheddar and contains only 1.3% saturated fat. It’s also high in Omega 3 fatty acids, has vitamin E and contains the same amount of calcium as standard Cheddar, so it’s great for growing kids.
The cholesterol and sodium levels are fantastic too, because it's made using LoSalt, making Super Light perfect for those looking for a healthy lifestyle. In fact, a 200g block of delicious Super Light contains all the calcium and protein of 5 pints of milk - without the fat and the carbohydrates.
