Kraft takes artificial preservatives out of its singles

A grilled cheese on rye.

From the Marketplace Desk of Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food.

Kraft says it's going to take artificial preservatives out of its American Singles slices.

OK, so it's not clear what will be left, but here are the mechanics: Sorbic Acid is going to be replaced by something called "natamycin," which, we're told, is a naturally occurring mold inhibitor.

Good to know.

There was always something special about a grilled cheese made from Kraft Singles...right?
