    Hi, Someone gave us a round wheel of your “Traditional and Handcrafted CHEDDAR” Cheese. The ingredients listed are: Pasteurized Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes, Amalto Coloring.

    My son has an allergy to the milk protein “Lactalbumin”. His doctor told him that he can eat Cheddar cheese that has been aged at the least three (3) years. I cannot find it anywhere on this wheel of cheese how long it has been aged.

    Can you possibly tell me?

    Thank you,
    Cathy Zaden Lea
