What is Cheese?
Cheese is a type of food made from the proteins and fat from milk. Cheese is produced in a wide variety of flavors. Each cheese differs in taste, usually because of the type of milk it is made of and how long it ages.
During cheese production, the milk is typically acidified or curdled. The solids are separated from the milk and pressed into the final form.
