Natural cheese like Cheddar, Colby and Monterey Jack are made directly from milk. Process cheese is made from natural cheese that is heated and blended with emulsifiers to give it a smooth texture and better meltability. Process cheese flavor remains constant while natural cheese flavor develops with aging.
We do not recommend freezing cheese because it changes the texture of the cheese usually resulting in the cheese being crumbly. However, if the cheese has been frozen, thaw the cheese in the refrigerator and use in cooking recipes such as omelets, casseroles, sandwich melts, etc.
Made from three Italian cheeses, this blend contains Asiago, Romano, and Parmesan cheeses for authentic Italian flavors, and American cheese for a creamy texture.
