About Cheddar Cheese
In past, Cheddar cheese was only made in England. Nowadays, many countries all over the world manufacture the cheese. Any cheese producing company can label the cheese as ‘Cheddar’ since it is not protected like other cheese names or brands.
Cheddar cheese is made from cow’s milk. It is a hard and natural cheese that has a slightly crumbly and smooth texture. The colour generally ranges from white to pale yellow. However, some may have a manually added yellow-orange colour. This is what we typically find in the grocery stores.
The cheese can be used in salads, omelets, soups, and so on. Some people avoid eating cheese not only because of their dietary restrictions but also because it contains lot of fat. Therefore, eat it in moderation because about 30g of cheese contains 114 calories and 9 grams of fat. Choose sharp or extra-sharp cheddar since the stronger flavour allows you to eat less cheese.
