1. As other reviewers have mentioned, you really can't use this exactly like you would the real Kraft powder. It will clump into little chewy cheese nuggets that don't quite work like the Kraft powder. You should mix the powder with a small amount of water/milk, making a paste, prior to adding it to your cooked pasta. As the cheese powder rehydrates, it will thicken a bit. If you plan to use it later, make it slightly runnier than you'd like. It'll firm up.
2. You don't NEED salt, milk, or butter. I prefer adding a bit of butter to the cooked pasta, but it's just fine to add the cheese, alone, to the noodles.
3. This is fantastic for leftover mac-and-cheese. Kraft veterans know that leftover Kraft dinner is never quite the same as a fresh pot. The Barry Farm powder, however, completely turns that notion on its head. Add some of the paste to day old mac-and-cheese, reheat, and it's as good as when it was first made.
4. This is great for independent children.Read more ›
This IS the KRAFT cheese powder! I at one point emailed Barry farms concerning something about it, and they told me it they buy 50 lb bags of the stuff from Kraft and break it down into 1 lb bags. All the same, its cheaper than buying the little round canisters of cheese powder that kraft sells for popcorn.
To compare to the stuff in the blue box mac and cheese, so I suggest 1/4 cup of cheese powder to 1/2 cup of pasta (uncooked) -- but you can experiment for yourself.
In terms of making mac and cheese, I suggest mixing it up with a little oil and milk (as suggested on the Kraft Mac & cheese boxes) and making sure the sauce is smooth BEFORE putting it on the cooked pasta or it will clump. The stuff for the blue box contains something to make it mix in smooth that the stuff for the popcorn doesn't have, so you do need to work a little to make sure the texture is smooth.
It is kind of sad that the shipping for this is so expensive (over twice the price of the item itself) but thats more about the post office than the company that sells it. Even so it still comes out cheaper than buying the little blue Kraft tubes of the stuff -- your not paying for the extra packaging.
