CarolCooks2…Friday Food Reviews…Natural Cheese v Processed Cheese…


Welcome to Friday Food Reviews where I will be covering a different food or product each week and looking at… what are they?  where do they grow, what can we substitute them for in a recipe, are they safe to eat, how to store them, how to use them, cook them, anything connected to that food. or product..all the why’s and the wherefores…it will, of course, be mainly my own opinion or a known fact…good or bad…there may even be a tried and tested recipe…or three…

We love cheese but I am selective and buy natural cheese where I can however I am partial to Brie sometimes as a treat…its the really heavily processed cheese that I avoid…pick wisely and enjoy!

This week it’s…Natural Cheese v Processed Cheese…


Well, what a can of worms …I started off looking at processed cheese slices and how healthy or not they are etc… When you look at a picture like the one above it screams healthy, good for you…Doesn’t it??

Well, read on … No, those pretty, healthy cheese slices nestling in the grass with a glass of milk…Are not!  You just have to read what is in one slice and then look at the picture again …a picture can be so very deceiving. Can’t it?

After researching cheese for a few days I realised that the cheeses which I thought were natural proper cheese may not be…

Although further investigation revealed that Europe has far more natural cheeses than the US…which appears to be the home of processed cheeses.

This is why their dairy industry is having such a hard time with it and it seems almonds are the new cow. So are cashews. Coconuts. Beans and peas. And pretty much any plant-based ingredients that can be turned into frothy, creamy, and delicious plant-based milk. No cow required.

Processed cheese the kind you find in a cheeseburger is known as prepared cheese it is made from real cheese however in what percentage I will tell you…Made from cheese and sometimes other unfermented dairy by-products, plus emulsifiers, saturated vegetable oils, extra salt, artificial food colourings, whey or sugars.
