Saputo Dairy UK has partnered with Asda to launch a new range of lactose-free cheese snacks, aimed at the children’s market.

From this month, the processor has kick-started its range of Nibbles SKU - a natural children’s snack with bite-sized nibbles of lactose-free Cathedral City Mild Lighter Cheese.

Cathedral City Lactose Free Block and Slices will also be part of the new product range.

Demand for free-from alternatives continues to grow, and their appeal is not limited to adult occasions​,” said Anca Lazar, senior brand manager Cathedral City Snacking.

Our recent snacking research, which highlighted mums’ desire to make good product choices (both nutritious and great tasting) when selecting snacks for their family, uncovered that for some this may mean catering to a child’s dietary intolerance or simply a preference to avoid certain foods in their family’s diet​.

Naturally low in lactose

While all aged, hard cheeses are naturally low in lactose, we are therefore going the extra mile and testing every batch of our Lactose Free Nibbles to guarantee there is no lactose left, so that parents can feel absolutely confident in the choice they are making for their family​.”

Made from ‘Mild Lighter’ cheese, with 30% less fat than standard cheddar, Cathedral City Lactose Free Nibbles contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, are high in protein and a source of calcium for stronger bones.

Earlier this month, the firm also announced the launch of a new Vitalite dairy-free alternatives range​ as it seeks to develop further growth in the free-from market.
