Kraft Singles
A brand of processed cheese product manufactured and sold by Kraft Foods, introduced in 1950.

  • Kraft individually wrapped "slices" are not really slices off a block, but formed separately in manufacturing.

Kraft SinglesPasteurized Prepared Cheese Product
Kraft singles do not qualify for the US FDA Pasteurized Processed Cheese labeling. For this reason, Kraft labels them Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product to avoid FDA sanctions. Kraft Foods called their Kraft Singles as "Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food" until the FDA gave a warning stating that the product could not be legally labeled that due to the inclusion of milk protein concentrates. Kraft complied with the FDA order by changing the label to the current Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.

Kraft SinglesFive ounces of milk?
One of the more famous ad campaigns involved the claim that each ¾ ounce slice contained "five ounces of milk", which makes them taste better than imitation cheese slices made mostly with vegetable oil and water and hardly any milk. The campaign was lambasted for its implications that each slice contained the same amount of calcium as a five-ounce glass of milk and also more calcium than imitation cheese slices, which eventually led to a ruling by the Federal Trade Commission in 1992 that ordered Kraft to stop making false claims in its advertising.
