    Hiya! Can someone please confirm I can have 42g of standard Mozzarella as 1 HEA?

    Also, is there such thing as reduced fat or half haf Mozzarella? If so, can you have more than the allocated 42g of the standard stuff?

    Cheers :D xx

    Yes, 42g of mozzarella is a HEXA. As you can have the same amount of it as you can have of reduced-fat cheddar, I would guess that it is fairly low-fat anyway. I think I have seen mozzarella "light" in the supermarket but I wouldn't think of buying it.

    Yes, you can get reduced fat mozzeralla - but I dont know how much you can get for a healthy extra choice - its not listed on the list of healthy extras on the website - just the 42g of regular.

    I would guess you can have a bit more (about 1/3 more if its 30% lighter so about 63g?). Just wish they had it listed.

    Aldi sell reduced fat mozzarella, I always use it rather than the full fat stuff. Behaves the same when melted, and can't say I've noticed too much of a difference in taste. About 49p for a ball :)
