Green Bay, Wisconsin-based BelGioioso Cheese Inc. showcased six new items at IDDBA ’19, says Jamie Wichlacz, the company’s marketing public relations manager:
· 8 oz. BelGioioso Stracciatella
· 3 oz. BelGioioso Sliced Provolone Snacks
· 4 oz. BelGioioso Breakfast Ricotta
· 12 oz. BelGioioso Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine Cups
· 6 oz. Casaro Sliced Mild Provolone
· 6 oz. Casaro Sliced Asiago Fresco
Stracciatella, the rich, sweet, milky filling found inside BelGioioso’s Burrata, is now available by itself, primarily in 8 oz. cups but also in a 1 lb format, Wichlacz says.
“Stracciatella is shreds of Fresh Mozzarella soaked in sweet cream, and it has become increasingly popular as a topping for pizzas, pastas and salads or served as an appetizer with fresh bread and tomato slices,” she says. “It’s crafted to order with fresh local Wisconsin milk, so you receive the freshest cheese possible.”
The 8 oz cup retails for a suggested $4.99, the 1 lb for $7.99.
Another of the new items, an all-natural Breakfast Ricotta cup, meets consumer demand for convenient, healthy breakfast options, Wichlacz says. “This new Breakfast Ricotta cup is the perfect solution for a busy lifestyle.”
Packaged in 4 oz cups, each serving provides 7 grams of protein and 40% of the daily value in calcium and has just 175 calories and 3 grams of sugar per cup, Wichlacz says.
