Raw Milk Cheeses, What About Them?


One of the hottest food trends right now is eating raw. So what about raw milk cheeses?

This may be to your surprise, but it’s likely you are already eating raw milk cheeses. For hundreds of years, traditional European cheese recipes have used only raw milk. Often you will find that raw milk cheeses are sharper and more defined in taste. That’s because when milk is heated or pasteurized, much of the good bacteria (which create the rich flavors in cheese) are killed. In fact, certain cheeses are only legally certified if made with raw milk, such as Gruyere and Parmigiano-Reggiano. France’s AOC (appellation d’origine contrôlée) and Italy’s DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) define the region, production and maturation process for many European cheeses. Though less common, you can also find raw milk cheeses produced in the United States. Continue reading

Crunch on with Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale!

Are you searching for a guiltless yet satisfying snack with awesome health benefits? You aren’t alone! In fact, that search is what led to the creation of Brad’s Raw Foods and Leafy Kale. In 2007, Brad Gruno embraced the health benefits of eating raw food, but he couldn’t escape his need for that familiar crunch. Experimentation led him to something flavorful, crunchy AND healthy. All of Brad’s products are dehydrated below 115 degrees to preserve vital nutrients and enzymes, and they’re also vegan and gluten-free.

Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale is new to Mollie Stone’s and we couldn’t be more excited. These crunchy kale chips are great enjoyed as a snack or to supplement a meal on-the-go. Some people also like to break them up and sprinkle them on top of soups or salads for some extra flavor and crunch.

Keep reading for the four flavors! Continue reading
