Product Description

Feta is an aged crumbly cheese, commonly produced in blocks, and has a slightly grainy texture. It is used as a table cheese, as well as in salads (e.g the Greek salad), pastries and in baking, notably in the popular phyllo-based dishes spanakopita ("spinach pie") and tyropita ("cheese pie") and combined with olive oil and vegetables. It can also be served cooked or grilled, as part of a sandwich or as a salty alternative to other cheeses in a variety of dishes.

In the US, Feta cheese is made from cow’s milk and while still delicious, does not have as strong a flavor.  Athenos is one of the more popular brands and touts itself as a healthy alternative to fatty American cheeses. In fact, it claims in its advertisements to have 30% less calories than cheddar cheese.
