What is "process cheese"?
Process cheese, also known as processed cheese, is a type of cheese product made by blending natural cheese with emulsifying salts and other ingredients. It has a smooth and consistent texture, making it easy to slice and melt. Process cheese is known for its extended shelf life and uniformity. While it may not have the same complexity of flavor as natural cheese, it is often used in cooking, sandwiches, and as a topping for burgers and nachos due to its convenient melting properties and versatility.
