U.S. judge tosses lawsuits about labels on Parmesan cheese Feinerman also said the 100 percent claims might be interpreted as other than an assertion that the product contained nothing but cheese. It could also be taken to mean 100 percent of the cheese was Parmesan or that the Parmesan cheese was 100 percent grated, he noted. Lawyers, bless their hearts. And fans of this stuff: enjoy your added wood pulp. I think I'll just buy Parmesan in a block and grate it with a microplane.
