Cheese, low fat, cheddar or colby

Fun Facts

  1. Cheese can help fill the protein gap. Cheese contributes high-quality protein as well as calcium, phosphorus and vitamin A to the American diet.
  2. In fact, most of us can tell mild from sharp cheddar with just one bite! We also know a lot about cheddar cheese, how it’s made, best served, and most importantly, how to distinguish its sharpness. We analyze cheese market trends and industry statistics, particularly as they pertain to small cheese companies and naturally aged cheeses.
  3. Cheddar is packaged air tight to eliminate molding. Although wax packaging is the most traditional, modern methods utilize plastic films and vacuum packing or a “gas flushing” technique to remove the air before sealing. Although the surface mold is harmless, it may be trimmed off and resealed in fresh plastic wrap and stored in the refrigerator.
  4. The dairy food group is the top source of dietary calcium in the American diet.
