About Super Light

About five years ago the Chairman of Wyke Farms, John Clothier, son of Ivy, was told he had high cholesterol and must change his diet. Unbeknown to John, his son Richard set about creating an alternative recipe to replace his everyday favourite, Mature Cheddar. Eventually, one of the test recipes tasted so much like Cheddar that even John, a devoted cheese connoisseur, was impressed. Even more impressive, Super Light (the new name for Leskol Half Fat) has 90% less cholesterol than Cheddar and contains only 1.3% saturated fat. It’s also high in Omega 3 fatty acids, has vitamin E and contains the same amount of calcium as standard Cheddar, so it’s great for growing kids.

Leskol Half Fat Cheese – Now offered in Stay Fresh Zip Packaging

Europe’s favourite healthier cheese brings great taste and health to the table in a convenient re-sealable pack

Somerset, UK – January 6, 2009 – Leskol, half fat cheese makes it even easier to stay in shape this new-year with a fresh re-sealable zip packaging design.  Fans of the healthier alternative to full fat cheddar can now enjoy the improved smooth and creamy taste for longer as the improved packaging helps to keep the cheese fresh for longer.

Appealing to the discerning female shopper the new Leskol packaging communicates the associated health benefits in a bright, fresh design. The enhanced Leskol has an even smoother texture with a full-bodied flavour that is not usually associated with healthier alternatives.

Award winning cheese makers, Wyke Farms originally developed Leskol to alleviate the high cholesterol of their chairman, John Clothier. It took 2 years to refine the recipe and was a real labour of love made for the family by the family. Last year the company redesigned the packaging in response to an overwhelming interest from the consumer for information on the story behind the cheese.  Twelve months later this redesign is as a result of further consumer feedback.

Looking, tasting, slicing and cooking the same as any Mature Cheddar, Leskol has one big difference; it has 1.3% saturated fat, approximately 90% less than regular Mature Cheddar. Naturally rich in protein and calcium and with added Omega 3 and Omega 6, Leskol Half fat Cheddar is an ideal family food.

Available nationwide at Asda, Co-op, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Somerfield, Tesco and Waitrose. For more information and free recipes log onto
