Disclosed herein is a method for producing a package of cheese shreds. Cheese shreds and anticaking agent are mixed at a load between 2 weight percent and 10 weight percent in relation to the cheese shreds to form anticake-coated cheese shreds. The anticaking agent comprises 15-30 weight percent reducing sugar; 0.2-0.8 weight percent glucose oxidase; and 0.5-2 weight percent salt chosen from sodium chloride, calcium chloride, and magnesium chloride. The anticake-coated cheese shreds are then sealed into a package without modifying the atmosphere in the package or using an inert gas flush.
