Grated parmesan with no cornstarch/anti-caking agents

I'm sure you cool kids knew this already, but for anyone who's interested, Whole Foods has a grated parmesan without any anti-additives, cornstarch, or extra preservatives.



I've had a bit of trouble finding this, so I just thought I'd pass it along for anyone else who might be looking for it too!

That is great! I have become accustom to grating my own as I need it. Fresher and better tasting in my opinion.

Oh, for sure - I try and grate myself whenever I have the time/opportunity, but sometimes it's just so nice to have the work done for you.

Ya, the thing I hate about grating cheese is the actual grater - takes up so much room in the dishwasher. I really need to find a sleeker model.

I love grating cheese ( I have several sizes of graters). But, I also love a manual pepper mill and squeezing my own orange juice.

That's funny nano, I was thinking about that stuff today as I grated 4oz of Parmesan! I wonder if it would melt like freshly grated? I was making an Alfredo sauce, and I needed it to melt. But boy would that have come in handy!

This was one pretty finely grated - almost closer to the green can stuff. But looking at it I do feel like it would melt! I did find another brand (4C Foods) that also didn't have any cornstarch, etc. with slightly bigger chunks of parmesan that also looked like it would melt! I just opted for the WF brand since it had a bit less sodium and saturated fat.

Thanks! Next time, I'll try that. Save me some time. It took forever to grate that cheese cause it's so light!

I have a flat grater that I use. Works wonders!

I have a grater disc for my Cuisinart food processor for doing any quantity grating. For smaller quantity grating I use a microplane grater most of the time.

The best gadget I've ever used to grate parmesan or romano cheese to a fine powder is my Ninja, using the small container. The coffee grinder also works well but doesn't hold as much.
