Keep it Fresh With a Commercial Cheese Shredder

The idea of buying pre-packaged shredded cheese is enticing because it can save time. The reality is it’s not always the best option for restaurants and foodservice operations. Shredding cheese in-house is the only way to provide the best-possible finished product. With the help of a commercial cheese shredder, it’s easier than ever to create fresh, quality dishes.

Fresh-Shredded Cheese is of Higher Quality

When cheese is shredded fresh, it produces a better product with more natural melting properties. How is it better? Freshly shredded cheese holds better flavor profiles, provides a higher-quality texture, and melts more consistently than bagged options. Bagged shredded cheese, on the other hand, can contain preservatives or other properties that will change flavors or textures.

Whether it’s shredded mozzarella on pizza or a shredded cheddar blend on burritos, high-quality dishes can lead to customer retention and profitability.

Shredding on Demand Can Lead to Reduced Food Waste

When it comes to shredded cheese, reducing food waste is all about ensuring the cheese tastes good. Bags of pre-shredded cheese is coated with an anti-coating agent to remove moisture, which causes clumping and encourages mold growth. This additive also hinders the melting process. Pre-shredded cheese also has an additive included to bulk the bag up. This means you’re not getting 100 percent cheese in the recipe when utilizing bagged cheese.

The end result is cheese that doesn’t melt well and produces an oily consistency, affecting the final product and its flavor. When using a block of cheese and shredding it on-site, the true cheese taste comes through, and you know exactly what’s being served to customers. Leading to a significant reduction in wasted product.

Buying Bags of Shredded Cheese Can be More Expensive

Buying pre-shredded cheese means the product undergoes an additional level of processing before it reaches the operator. When more steps are required, the more expensive the product gets. The reality is that fresh-shredded cheese is almost always a cheaper option.

With Fresh Shredding, There Are Still Ways to Save Time

There are still ways for restaurants and foodservice operations to save time if they’ve committed to the quality and freshness of on-demand shredding. The reality is, shredding fresh cheese doesn’t have to be a daunting process. With the right cheese shredder machine, it can be done quickly and efficiently in volumes that will ultimately save labor and time.
