I heard about these recently on a radio program and am really anxious to try them out. I do love my bread, but this sounds like a great bread alternative - especially for a cheesaholic like me. Glad to see they are available in the area. Read on for more info.
HEY WINDY CITY: IT’S A WRAP!
LOTITO FOODS DEBUTS FOLIOS™ IN CHICAGO
A REVOLUTIONARY BREAKTHROUGH IN CHEESE
Wrap It, Roll It, Crisp It and Melt It.
Available in STRAK & VAN TIL STORES
Lotito Foods, the family owned, four generation cheese and specialty food company, announces the newest addition to their iconic imported Italian and domestic cheese line: Folios™ is now available in Chicago at Strak & Van Til stores! The delicious Folios product is revolutionary: lightly baked sheets of cheese that are made from Parmesan, Cheddar or Jarlsberg® cheese. Folios offers 12 grams of protein per serving and are made from cows not treated with growth hormone rBST*. Folios are the ONLY unique cheese that can be eaten as a no-carb, gluten-free wrap, adding a delicious wholesome flavor to any sandwich. Filled with veggies, your favorite deli meat, or anything you desire, this is the very first 100% cheese wrap that you take out of the package, fill and eat!
Folios are a first of its kind cheese product as no other company has ever created a product made of all natural, part-skim cheese, that is carb and gluten free plus high in protein. This innovative breakthrough offers both chefs and home cooks creative ways to use Folios to create recipes and ideas that were never possible before.
Folios is available in three delicious flavors: Parmesan Folios, taken from the authentic most famous cheese of Italy, with a nutty, fruity blast of flavor; Cheddar Folios, impart a rich, Vermont buttery cheese taste and Folios made with Jarlsberg cheese offer the classic mellow yet slightly nutty deliciousness in every bite.
“Our family has been in love with cheese for over a century,” said Chris Lotito, President of Lotito Foods. “Folios is the culmination of this rich, long history of our family’s love and knowledge of artisan cheese, with a versatile, modern take on offering home cooks and chefs a totally new way to enjoy cheese.It’s a game changer!”
They are available for consumers in a 4 count pack at a SRP of $6.99 and are shipped to supermarkets in the deli section in cases of 12. For foodservice operators they are available in 10 packs and come in cases of 12.
Folios join the already classic Lotito food product line, which includes both imported and domestic Italian cheese, cheese blends and solutions as well as Italian specialty foods. Lotito brands include Gabriella®, Suprema®, Lotito® and Swan Valley®.
“I was born into the cheese business,” adds Lotito President Chris Lotito. “And now Folios is my latest cheese passion!”
