Sargento Light String Cheese Review

Sargento Light String CheeseString cheese is one of those snacks especially suited for the times when you need a protein hit but you don't have the time to make a turkey sandwich or whip up a protein shake. Although you might think that a simple cheese stick would be relatively diet-friendly, some varieties can contain upwards of 100 and more than 6 grams of fat. For this very reason, Sargento has granted dieters with a lighter version of the string cheese classic.

Sargento Light String Cheese is tasty, sufficiently salty and cheesy, but it has some drawbacks. Each stick weighs in at just 21 grams, which is 7 grams (25%) fewer than your average 1 ounce cheese stick.Each stick is individually wrapped, which is great because they tend to get dry if you don't eat them immediately after purchase. However, they are highly portable and perfect for stashing in your bag for a mid-morning snack. Due to their high protein content, they efficiently stave off hunger for an hour or two until your next meal.

Each small stick of Sargento Light String Cheese contains just 50 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat, 1.3 grams of which is saturated (4% and 8% of the RDA respectively), 6 grams of protein and 15% of your daily calcium needs. For you carb-watchers, there is less than one gram of carbohydrate. The sodium content is relatively low for cheese: just 8% of the RDA.

Find these at most major supermarkets and discount warehouses at $2.69 for a 12 pack (I purchased a 24-pack at Sam's Club for a significantly reduced price). I loved having a low cal snack that could go everywhere with me and I would definitely buy these again.
