Lotito Foods Debuts Folios Line of Lightly Baked Cheese Sheets
Lotito Foods, the family owned, four generation cheese and specialty food company, has introduced its Folios line. The Folios product is lightly baked sheets of cheese that are made from Parmesan, Cheddar or Jarlsberg cheese.
The item offers both chefs and home cooks creative ways to use Folios to create new recipes and ideas. Folios can be crisped in the microwave or oven and crumbled for use on salads and soups, or eaten alone as a crunchy cheese snack. They can be molded into an edible bowl for salads or pasta, or melted over omelets or soups, and they can come straight out of the package as a perfect no-carb, high protein wrap option.
Folios is available in three flavors: Parmesan Folios, taken from the authentic most famous cheese of Italy, with a nutty, fruity blast of flavor; Cheddar Folios, impart a rich, Vermont buttery cheese taste; and Folios made with Jarlsberg cheese offer the classic mellow yet slightly nutty deliciousness in every bite.
“Our family has been in love with cheese for over a century,” says Chris Lotito, president of Lotito Foods. “Folios is the culmination of this rich, long history of our family’s love and knowledge of artisan cheese, with a versatile, modern take on offering home cooks and chefs a totally new way to enjoy cheese. It’s a game changer.”
Folios are made of all natural, part-skim cheese, that is carb and gluten-free and high in protein. They are available for consumers in a 4-count pack with a suggested retail price of $5.99 and are shipped to supermarkets in the deli section in cases of 12. For foodservice operators, they are available in 10-packs and come in cases of 12.
Folios join the already classic Lotito food product line, which includes both imported and domestic Italian cheese, cheese blends and solutions as well as Italian specialty foods. Lotito brands include Gabriella, Suprema, Lotito and Swan Valley.
