What is it?
High Protein Cheese is just that. It’s cheese without the fat. It’s made the same way as normal cheese except the fat is removed while it’s still in milk form. So with less fat, there is loads more room for protein. 40% more than supermarkets is what you’ll find in MyProteins High Protein Cheese.
Normal cheese is super high in fat, and even if you’re not on a low-fat diet it’s easy to eat too much. With a high-protein alternative like this, it’s simple to ensure you’re hitting macro goals without over-eating on fat.
High Protein Cheese is essentially just normal supermarket cheddar with the fat removed, made with completely natural ingredients and no nasty fillers, it’s a perfectly real dairy cheese.
Unless you are vegan or are following a low protein diet – and why would you ever – this product is perfect for you.
With 169 calories per 100g coming from 37g of protein and JUST 2g of fat, it’s easy to see why this product fits so well into any healthy diet. In fact, many popular diet plans such as Slimming World and weight watchers regularly recommend their clients to favour High Protein Cheese over regular cheese. It’s clear to see why.
Clients who follow Slimming World can have 70g of High Protein Cheese as their Healthy Extra A (HEXA) as opposed to the usual 30g of standard cheddar or 40g of reduced fat cheddar.
And with weight watchers, you can have 26g of High Protein Cheese for ZERO points. WOWZER!
There are many slimming benefits when following a high-protein/low-fat diet. One being hunger suppression. Protein is known to keep us fuller for longer, whereas fat, which has more calories, can easily be over consumed.
It’s a lot easier to eat a 100g packet of peanuts in one sitting and waste 607kcals than it is to eat 607kcals worth of chicken ( that’s more than 2 large breasts). The same with the high-protein cheese, it’s easy to stay fuller for longer.

We bought the smoked flavoured High Protein Cheese, because who doesn’t like smoked cheese? Initially, I was a little disappointed, I think I expected it to be super creamy like normal cheese, but who was I kidding, that creaminess is just PURE FAT, of course, it’s not as creamy.
Cheese is something I’ve only recently started to like and if I was asked to write this review last year I would have refused as I absolutely hated cheese. It’s an acquired taste, and just like normal cheese, so is this High-Protein cheese. It does take a bit of getting used to especially if you eat cheese often as it does have a slightly thicker, plastic texture, however, this isn’t unpleasant.
Once you’ve got past the initial transition period you learn to enjoy this stuff. It’s just as versatile as normal cheddar, you can add it to a sandwich, grate it on your chilli or eat it alone as a snack.
I did notice the cheese is slightly harder to grate, due to the texture, but it is possible and adds great flavour your meals.
I would definitely buy it again as it’s a great low-fat replacement, however, I do still favor normal cheese.
MyProteins Low Fat/High-Protein cheese is perfect served any way you would serve normal cheddar.
Whether that’s in a sandwich, wrap, toastie or burger.
Grilled on toast, on top of stuffed pepper, or in a bacon bread roll.
Oven cooked on a pizza, lasagne or quiche.
It’s just as versatile as any other cheese.
