New Foods to Watch: Folios


Lotito Foods, a family owned, four generation cheese and specialty food company, introduced Folios™, lightly baked sheets of cheese that are made from Parmesan, Cheddar or Jarlsberg® cheese. 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 and high in protein. For foodservice operators they are available in 10 packs and come in cases of 12. image003[2]

Folios can be crisped in the microwave or oven and crumbled for use on salads and soups, or eaten alone as a crunchy cheese snack. They can be molded into an edible bowl for salads or pasta or melted over omelets or soups and they can come straight out of the package as a no-carb, high protein wrap option.

“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!”

Folios join the 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®.
