Definitions for "Process Cheese"
made by blending several lots of cheese
A blend of one or more natural cheeses.The cheese is first ground and emulsifiers are added to keep the fat from separating from the solids. This aids the smoothness and allows the cheese to be pasteurized through heating. The result is a product which is less susceptible to spoilage because the aging process has been stopped.
Any cheese product created by blending natural cheeses and sometimes adding other ingredients.
