PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Few things are better than cheese, but KRAFT continues to raise the bar. KRAFT believes consumers deserve cheese as it should be, and that’s why KRAFT Natural Cheese is now made with milk from cows raised without the artificial growth hormone rbST – and it’s as delicious as ever.

Over half of all consumers try to avoid added hormones in their food*, so KRAFT is excited to announce that its natural cheese is now made from fresh milk without rbST – including shredded cheese, natural slices, blocks and snacking cheese.

“Everything we do at KRAFT revolves around the families that love our cheeses and what we can do to delight our consumers,” said Anne Field, Director of Brand Building for KRAFT. “Our goal is to give families KRAFT cheese the way it should be, with the same great taste and without the artificial hormone rbST at no additional cost. As the #1 national brand of cheese in the homes of American families**, we’re excited to give people another reason to love us.”
