Ingredients

Pasteurized cultured milk, salt, microbial enzymes

Skimmed Milk (Water, Skimmed Milk Powder), Cheeses, Butter, Milk Proteins, Emulsifying Salts: Sodium Polyphosphates, Calcium Phosphates, Citric Acid, Diphosphates, Salt

The main highlights:

Mini Babybel has…

 

  • double the protein
  • more calcium
  • more fat and calories
  • a shorter ingredients list than that of the cheese triangles. Cheese triangles are processed cheese product that contains some cheese but also other food additives such as emulsifiers.

 

 

OUR WINNER: Mini Babybel!

 

Processed cheese tends to contain less milk but more additives and sodium than regular cheese, so it is better to choose the real thing and consume it in moderation.
