Why has The Laughing Cow added a new ‘NO NO NO’ pictogram onto its packs?
Our aim is to reduce the additives in all our products whilst maintaining the high quality and texture of TLC. We want to be totally transparent with our customers and re-assure them about the quality and composition of our products. No flavours, colours or preservatives are added to TLC Original, Light, Blue, Cheddar and D&C Original, Light. We have decided to highlight this on our packaging to re-assure our customers and be clear about our ingredients with the claim ‘No artificial flavours, colours or preservatives added’. No colours and preservatives are added to our Extra Light and Emmental product recipes, but they still contain natural flavourings. This is why you will find the claim ‘No artificial colours or preservatives added’. We will continue to work to improve our recipes, keeping only what is absolutely necessary to produce delicious products for our customers.
Why is there salt in cheese?
Cheese is a food traditionally salted during its production. Even artisan cheeses add salt. This is for: Food Safety properties: salt helps to prevent the development of harmful bacteria Flavour and texture: Salt helps to control the growth of bacteria used to develop the flavour and texture of the cheese. Taste: The salt acts as a flavour enhancer. Recipe: The Laughing Cow is creamy and delicious because of its secret recipe that includes a variety of cheeses (Cheddar, Gouda, Edam, Emmental, Comté …), melted and blended. Salt from these cheeses is therefore also present in the final ingredients analysis. We only add salt to The Laughing Cow recipe very occasionally to ensure the flavour is the same in cases the blend of cheeses used requires it.
