Consumers note health as a key concern and the healthy-ingredient snacking segment is expected to grow 5.7% annually from 2016 to 2020 according to the Healthy Ingredient Snacks in the US report.

Cheese is an ideal healthy snack because of its inherently simple ingredient label with easy to pronounce words and its high protein level.  Each package of Bongards Cheese curds has 14g of protein which is sure to keep consumers satisfied.  Protein also helps build lean muscle mass which can help burn more calories even at rest (increasing the resting metabolic rate) according to The Mayo Clinic.

Most importantly- Cheese is delicious!  In fact the US Department of Agriculture estimates that the average american eats 34 lbs of cheese annually a figure which has risen 43% over the past 25 years.
