Karoun Dairies’ Yanni Grilling Cheese the Lower Fat, High Protein Taste Sensation

Research has been touting the benefits of high protein, low-fat diets for nearly a decade. According to a 2004 study done by the American Society of Nutritional Scientists, diets high in protein (30%) but low in fat (<30% ) and moderate in carbohydrate (40%) reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, as well as triglycerides, as reported in the Journal of Nutrition. In addition to health benefits, a low fat diet can be beneficial and delicious especially when savoring the Karoun Dairies, Inc. (www.karouncheese.com) Yanni line of Greek-style cheeses; most notably the lower fat, high protein taste sensation found in Yanni Grilling Cheese, available in original and mint.

Grilling Cheese is a traditional semi-firm Mediterranean cheese, with a distinctive layered texture that is mildly salty with a rich buttery taste. Due to its high protein and lower fat content, Karoun’s Yanni Grilling Cheese can withstand extreme temperatures in the oven or on the grill without melting, and will develop a delicious golden crust when grilled.
