    fantastic healthy option

    I was very excited to be part of this review as cheese has always been my weakness. I purchased my cheese the same day my voucher arrived. The first thing I noticed after taking the cheese out of the packet was the color was a lot lighter than regular block cheese but to me it seems to have a less processed look to it than the regular very yellow block cheese. I very much enjoyed the taste as did the rest of the family. Toasted cheese sandwiches are common place in my house and the cheese melted perfectly without having that melted plastic look and feel. For someone like me who loves their cheese a little too much Kraft Livefree is a perfect option and will probably be a regular on my shopping list

    best light cheese

    Most of the time, light cheeses are very bland. When they are grated, they can end up tasting like little pieces of plastic.
    But Kraft have mastered the art of making their cheeses beautifully creamy and rich. The blocks are easy to slice through and melts to beautiful gooey goodness! Love all Kraft cheeses!

    This cheese is so tasty for a light cheese. It doesnt have that plastic taste that some light cheeses have. Melts really well and is great in omlettes. It comes in block, grated and other forms so is very convienant for anybody to use. I would definately recommend this cheese to anyone

    I did not do this review but was happy with what others were saying about it so i decided to go out and buy it and try myself.. I found it to be very tasting, not like other light cheeses that have a horrible taste. My kids loved it and even my husband was happy with it so for us as a family it is a winner

    guiltyfree cheese!

    Bought one of the Kraft Livefree cheese block during one of my routine grocery shopping. I used it on my lasagne sauce and loved it! The texture and taste is so creamy and smooth. The blocks are so easy to use, grated very well and melts easy too. Used a full block for my lasagne and never felt so guilty-free eating it! Definitely a healthier option to use when you are thinking of a cheese loaded dishes. For the price you are paying, Kraft Livefree cheese is definitely worth giving a try.

    I was not over keen. On this cheese

    We eat a lot of cheese cheese in salads cheese in cooking in making sauces. Cheese on sandwiches. .. We found this had not much taste. No flavour.
    I would not buy this. Again I really would not .. And when trying it on the family. The grand kids did not eat it
    They left it on the plate. Miss nine said it was yuk. It squashed in her mouth. …

    Great healthy cheese

    This cheese is so healthy and had a pretty good taste and texture, my husband and I love it! As for the kids not so much as it requires an acquired taste and does not taste the same as regular cheese. I will keep on buying this product as it is really healthy and the best cheese for me even though it is a bit more expensive then normal cheese.

    ita ok prob won't buy again

    Gluten free pastry

    Ingredients

    1 cup water
    2 tspn salt
    90g unsalted butter chopped and kept cold
    150g gluten free flour Plus 1/2 cup extra for kneeding
    2g xanthan gum
    2 free range eggs

    Directions

    1
    Preheat oven to 200C

    2
    In a heavy based saucepan combine the water, salt and butter.

    3
    Bring to a simmer and add the flour and Xanthan gum. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon. Lower temperature and continue to cook until pastry comes away from the sides and is well combined. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

    4
    Whisk the eggs to combine and add half the egg mixture slowly, incorporating fully before adding the final half. If the mixture is a dough texture when you add in the first half, you may not need to rest of the eggs mixture.

    5
    Turn out onto a surface on which you have placed a further ½ cup gluten free flour and knead until shiny. Try to incorporate as little flour as possible so the pastry does not go crumbly.

    6
    Chill pastry then using a rolling pin roll the pastry between two pieces of baking paper greased on both sides. Roll to half a centimetre thick and place in pie tins.

    7
    Properties: browns beautifully, has a nice crispness and holds in moisture. Has a nice potato undertone which is very pleasant. Has a great shelf life, up to 5 days in fridge without going mouldy.

    8
    Note: You could add 2 teaspoons of xylitol or coconut sugar and make a sweet pastry for fruit pies.

    Kraft Livefree is not very nice

    I purchased this product thinking as a cheese lover that it would be a healthier alternative to the lovely cheeses that I eat, I now consider that this was a mistake, I found it to be chalky and rubbery all at the same time, it did not melt at all, I tried to grate some on a pasta bake, big fail, the taste was dry, texture horrid, I have no doubt that it probably is a healthier option but I think I would prefer a smaller serve of a nice cheese than endure this again, I really could not recommend it and I do not think I would consider purchasing it again, in fact I don’t think I would ever have it for free.

    this is yummy

    we are all big cheese lovers around here and i thought that i would give this a go. the kids like it because they pretty much will eat anything. in saying that, my hubby is a big cheese fan and really knows what he likes. he didn’t mind this cheese though. we had cheese toasties and i thought that it melted ok. i think i will get it again next time that it is on special.

    to Cheesy

    In my opinion I feel it tastes too cheesy and leaves a weird after taste. Each to their own.

    Low in fat!

    Kraft Livefree 250g Grated Natural Cheese was trialed at home and used to put on top of pasta bake and grilled, over pizza and oven baked and on sandwiches for the kids and me. The cheese did not melt very well but having a lower fat option in cheese that still has a nice taste is what is accomplished with this brand. Kids enjoyed it and were none the wiser that it was lower in fat and calories which I love.

    tasty for a changed lifestyle

    I really enjoyed Krafts live free cheese as it has a lot less calories than other ‘lite’ but was pleased that it was on sale, it did not melt at all well and does leave room for improvement in this area, The taste and texture did make up for it and my normally fussy kids where totally unware they were eating a light cheese. It is now our go to cheese

    yummy and guilt free

    One thing I cant cut off my diet is cheese and I think everyone knows why. But thanks to this I still have the great same taste of cheese I can use in many of my cooking and snacking but feel guilt free. It has great variety and its easy to choose which to what I am making. Pizza has never been more guilt free. Iys a great product fir those striggling to get cheese out of their diet . Live free indeed. Yummy.

    It is the lowest fat out of the other brands

    I really enjoyed Krafts livefree cheese as it has a lot less calories than other ‘lite’ cheeses on sale. The melting was quite minimal and does leave room for improvement, however the taste and texture did make up for it. You really can’t tell the difference between Kraft live free cheese and other fattier option. I would love to see the same product but made entirely from soy!

    Good to cook with.

    Low fat cheeses are definitely something that appeal to me because I’m always looking for ways to reduce my intake of saturated fats. The fact that this is so low in fat is great but, for me, the product does have some limitations.
    I found that it worked well in things like omelettes, quiches and on top of pastas and the like. But to be honest, it’s not really a product that I would eat on a sandwich. Even so, I’m sure I’ll buy it again for cooking purposes.

    Such a lovely taste

    I was amazed at the taste of the cheese. I thought it being so extra light, I didn’t think the taste would be the same. But I was wrong. We just love having toasted ham, cheese and tomato on our off vegies day, and it melted beautifully in the tomato and it was delicious. I will make sure we have more of these. xxx
