Tillamook Medium Cheddar Slices

One of life’s greatest questions…Let’s take a closer look!

American cheese is a processed cheese. It has varying amounts of natural cheese included in it that are all heated to a molten mass and mixed with varying levels of preservatives, emulsifier salts, artificial flavors/colors, and trans-fats. Depending on the desired end use, the melted mixture is then reformed and packaged into blocks, slices, tubs, jars, or spray cans. It originally came from Switzerland!

Aged cheddar cheese is a natural cheese. It’s made of milk, salt, rennet, and sometimes a coloring agent is added (because for one reason or another people prefer it yellow). It had its origins in Cheddar, England. Award-winning Tillamook Cheddar Cheese is different than many other cheddars because it’s made of all-natural ingredients, is always naturally aged for at least 60 days to get that genuine “cheddar” flavor, is made without artificial growth hormones*, and every batch is tested by the Tillamook Sensory Team to ensure it’s of the highest quality.

Here’s the breakdown:

*The FDA has stated that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST and non-rBST treated cows.

mmmmm....aged cheddar...the sharper the better! I only touch American cheese if there is nothing else around. I used to work with a guy who would ONLY eat American and I felt sorry for him. There are so many FABULOUS cheeses out there and he was limiting himself to pressed cheese flavored substitute. how sad.

Now, Tillamook, when you are you going to make my favorite, raclette? So I don't have to pay for the imported ones. :)

What about the "deluxe" American cheese? you know, the ones that don't come in Singles. Do they still come from the same process?
