Only our Chihuahua®, Cotija and Chorizo products can be frozen.
How is Crema different from sour cream?
Our Crema has a silky texture when stirred or shaken. Perfect for transferring to a squeeze bottle. Flavor is from natural culture, and only slightly tangy. This product is perfect for basic garnishing and for adding to soups, sauces and dressings. Will not break with heat or when acidic ingredients, such as citrus juice, are added.
Are the Cheeses vegetarian-friendly?
All of our cheese products are lacto-ovo vegetarian friendly with the exception of our cotija cheese.
How is Mexican chorizo different than Spanish chorizo, or other types?
Our chorizo is a fresh sausage with a crumbly texture. Not to be confused with cured, slice-able ready-to-eat varieties. The flavor profile is bold and complex.
Are any of the cheese products low in lactose?
Our Cotija cheese is 99.99% lactose-free. Chihuahua® cheese is 99.95% lactose free and Oaxaca Cheese is 98% lactose-free. Lactose is naturally converted into lactic acid during the cheese-making process.
