One of the most popular cheeses is Cheddar, originating in the village of Cheddar, Sommerset, England. Now this cheese is manufactured in many countries under the same name, Cheddar. But each is slightly different. One of the reasons Cheddar is so popular is because of its versatility in flavor and that it lends itself to so many uses. There are four varieties, mild, medium, strong, sharp and extra sharp. I prefer the sharp, which is your favorite? If you haven’t tried them all, you owe it to your taste buds to do so. But read the name and label carefully before you buy.
Like all cheese, Cheddar is traditionally made from milk. Although cheese making is not a simple process and requires years of learning and experience. Each type of cheese requires a different process. Do you know how to choose the best cheese?
- “Real” cheese, not a processed cheese. The label tells you if the cheese is processed
- The cheese that suits your purpose: high protein, lowest fat, strongest, sharpest flavor
- Read the label, skip a cheese with the word “processed” or “cheese food” on the label or those with multiple ingredients
Think twice before you buy cheese and buy only enough to eat in one week so it does not spoil or get moldy. And remember, cheese is a nutrient dense food rich in Calcium, but it is also high in fat and calories, so make your cheese purchase be of nutritional value and eat it in moderation.
