Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese Review

My favorite "cheat" food has got to be pizza. Yummy, gooey, melty goodness...and possible complete destruction to my otherwise healthy eating habits! In order to try to make this habit a bit healthier, I have switched to English muffin pizzas with marinara sauce, but what to do about the most essential ingredient ... cheese? I decided to try out the Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese to see how it would stand up to my pizza taste test.

NUTRITION FACTS

Calories: 70
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 10%
Sodium: 150 mg, 6%
Protein: 7 grams
Carbohydrates: 0 grams
Price: $2.53 (8 oz)

This didn't melt as well as regular mozzarella cheese as it was just slightly rubbery, but it tasted pretty darn good! Although I would still rank good old mozzarella higher on my list, for the nutritional trade off, I would definitely recommend the trade off for pizza addicts like myself.

Each 1/3 cup serving of Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese has about one-third less calories than regular part skim shredded cheese. There are 70 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated fat (10% of the daily value), 6% of the DV for sodium and 7 grams protein. Each serving also fulfills 20% of your daily calcium needs and are 2 Weight Watchers Points.

I paid $2.53 for an 8 oz. bag of cheese (8 servings). Considering the fact that the generic store brand in the same size goes for $2.50 per package, I would consider this a good buy. I will probably still experiment with other brands of Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese, but this makes a perfectly good substituition on home-made pizzas.
