Cheddar Buds® is an instant cheese sauce mix that is made with real Wisconsin cheese. Cheddar Buds delivers the true flavor of  cheddar cheese in a convenient “just add water” sauce mix. Low in fat, calories and cholesterol, Cheddar Buds is a perfect addition to healthy meals. Convenient and easy to use, Cheddar Buds saves on food preparation time, making it more economical than canned, frozen or made-from-scratch cheese sauces.

Cheddar Buds mixes easily with tap water to produce a great-tasting sauce for pastas, vegetables and more. It’s also a beneficial food service product that makes a delicious dipping sauce or topping. When used in its original powder form, Cheddar Buds serves as a flavoring agent in recipes. It also stands up to prolonged warming and can be reheated without compromising product integrity.
