Dairy cheese notes
DAIRY ~ (Cheese) NOTES

Cheese making is an ancient method of preserving milk.


An Arab stored milk in a container made from a calf’s stomach. When he stopped to drink, he noticed only a small amount of watery substance ran from the bag.

Version 1: - he ripped the bag open and tasted the solidified mass. It had a mild, sweet flavor. He ate it immediately.

Version 2: - He hung the bag in a convenient place and continued on his journey. Weeks later on his return trip, he tasted the firm curd.

Milk formed a curd because the lactic-acid-producing bacteria increased the acidity and the enzyme rennin in the calf’s stomach helped in its coagulation.

Rennin coagulated milk at 99 degrees.

  • Cheese making:

  • Warm milk slightly

  • Add starter (lactic-acid producing bacteria)

  • Add rennin

  • Casein coagulates, curd forms

  • Curd cut to separate from whey

  • Uncured cheese

  • Stored in refrigerator

  • Does not keep well

    • Cottage cheese

    • Cream cheese

  • Cured cheese

  • Prepared from pasteurized milk

  • Yellow color is added

  • Heated to a higher temperature than uncured cheese

  • Ripened at correct humidity and temperature for the type of cheese being made

Cheese classifications
Cheese Classifications

  • With so many cheeses available today, there are several categories by which they can be referenced. Milk type, country of origin, region, handling, aging, and texture are some of the various classification strategies that have been used. Although most experts agree that none of these classifications are completely adequate, so far no one has been able to come up with one that really covers all the variables. Even when two experts agree on which method to use, they do not necessarily agree on which cheeses fall into which categories.

Cheese Classifications


Dairy cheese notes1
DAIRY ~ (Cheese) NOTES

In the United States, cheddar is the most popular cured cheese.

Cheddar is mild at first, then it ripens to a stronger flavor. Cheddar cheese is named from a village in England where it was first made.

Low temperatures, long ripening = superior cheese

Colby cheese resembles cheddar but is softer – not cured as long.

Edam cheese is also similar to cheddar, but is reduced to 2.5% fat. You will recognize this cheese easily as it is covered with red paraffin.

Swiss cheese has holes in it due to the gas given off by bacteria in the cheese.

Processed cheeses are natural cheeses that are ground, mixed, heated, and emulsified.

  • Cheese is graded on:

  • Flavor

  • Body

  • texture

Cheese grades are: AA, A, B, C, and D

Due to the high protein and fat in cheese, it can be used in place of meat.

Cheese is relative low in cost… with exceptions!

Because cheese is high protein food, it must be cooked at low temperature.

Dairy cheese

VERY HARD: (extremely hard, crumbles apart when you try to grate it)

Sharp Parmesan, romano, asiago

HARD: (cheese that can be grated) Gruyere, swiss, cheddar, provolone

SEMI SOFT: (too soft to easily grate, too firm to scoop in spoon)

American, feta, bleu, mozzarella, montery jack, muenster

SOFT:(easy to scoop in spoon, easy to spread)

Cream cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, neufchatel

PROCESSED: Velveeta, cheese whiz
