BUFFALO, N.Y. — Sorrento Lactalis, Inc. is launching Sorrento +Plus string cheese, which includes Sorrento +Plus Calcium & Vitamin D and Sorrento +Plus 100% Lactose-Free offerings.
"The new Sorrento +Plus products respond to consumer demand for foods that offer good nutrition, health, convenience and taste all rolled into one," said Mary Genco, snack cheese product manager for Sorrento Lactalis. "Calcium plus vitamin D is the No. 1 food fortification requested by consumers, with lactose-free ranking in the top five."
These nutrients were added as many Americans do not consume the recommended dietary allowances for calcium and vitamin D and many Americans have difficulty digesting lactose.
