Too much salt please make without salt

Please make this cheese without salt if the people want salt they can add it I have high blood pressure and can no longer buy your cheese with salt please make your cheese with out salt pleeeeease so I can continue to buy it thank you Grace Presta

We appreciate your comment/suggestion however given that our products are all natural with no preservatives - salt serves as our only shelf life stabilizer.

It’s the trade off to making authentic, traditional cheeses that have been made this way for centuries. Nevertheless, we'll take your suggestion into consideration as we strive to meet the needs of all our customers. Thank you for reaching out, and we hope to continue serving you in the future.

Medeiros, Pedro

Always, treated well.
Familiar tastes of the old country; exception, no mare at your front door with fresh cheese wrapped in leaves.
