This is a “vegetarian friendly”, certified organic, aged, sharp cheddar cheese.  The texture of the cheese is firm, not hard, and not crumbly.  There’s a touch of a non-cheddar flavor in the cheese.  Regardless, this is a nice cheddar cheese, especially for someone looking for an organic cheese.  Calories 110 per ounce, price $5.99 per pound

Roth cheeses can be found at other supermarkets also, click here to search near you.

One of my pet peeves about cheese labeling is the ambiguous references to “enzymes” in the labeling.  Some enzymes (a minority now) come from animals – making them non-vegetarian.  Animal enzymes are sometimes labeled as rennet (although even the word rennet can be used ambiguously).  Other enzymes (many cheeses use these) are produced by bacterial cultures or are plant-based, and are vegetarian friendly.  By not clearly labeling the type of enzymes used in making the cheese, the cheese makers make it more difficult for vegetarians to find cheeses which suit their dietary preferences.  Even this one which is labeled “vegetarian friendly” – and I assume that means non-animal enzymes  – doesn’t mention the source of the enzymes in the ingredient label.  Here’s some additional reading.
