Technically defined as a Reduced Fat Swiss, Jarlsberg Lite has been surprising dieters and that steadily growing number of health conscious eaters since it was introduced in the late 1980s. The result of more than a decade of research and development-by those perfectionist sticklers at Norwegian Dairies-it is indeed unique: carrying most of the mellow nuttiness and "creaminess" plus the nutritional benefits characteristic of classic Jarlsberg, Lite is also completely natural, crafted and aged like any other "real" cheese.

As a bonus, this semi-soft cheese melts readily, without lumps or stringiness. It can be substituted in just about any-everyday or party-recipe calling for Jarlsberg or Swiss and is, of course, terrific for munching, flavor is best at cool room temperature.

It's hard to believe that Jarlsberg Lite contains 50% less fat and 30% fewer calories-less sodium, too-than regular Swiss cheese. (Look for distinctive labeling on 11-pound deli loaves and on precut pieces in the imported cheese case.) To that army of cheese lovers who, for one reason or another, may have thought their favorite food was off limits, Lite obviously represents a boon. In moderation, it has a place on even the majority of weight and cholesterol reducing regimens.
