Kosher cheese powder in Los Angeles or online?

I'd love to get my hands on some kosher cheese powder. Can I buy it somehwere in Los Angeles? Or is there an online resource I can order it from?

  1. I've just got to ask . . . what in the world is cheese powder?

      I assume the kind that comes in the mac n' cheese packets.

        There are actually lots of different types of cheese powders available (including kosher and chalav yisroel - the OU product guide lists several) but they tend to be at the foodservice or bulk-sale level. Just not a large demand at retail.

        Here's an example of the range of products (not all kosher):

          Well it would be cheaper than buying boxes of Wacky Mac. I won't touch it but my kids love it. Heaven forbid I made mac and cheese using real cheese...

            Thanks. I don't know what I'd even do with it (I'm a 'real' cheese lover!) but I want to play around, see what I can come up with. I thought maybe I'd make some cheese crackers or something long those lines. I just like to play in the kitchen when I have time :)

              The Mrs. took me off carbs for a while so crackers were out. My favorite "cracker" alternative is still parmesan crisps. This way I can eat cheese on a cracker that's really cheese.

        Nope, it is actually fried, powdered cheese. Fabulous on popcorn!
