Facts of Cheese – White or Orange?
Did you know that cheddar cheese, well, actually all cheese is naturally only white? Well, except for moldy cheese like bleu cheese but the cheese is still white. In fact, outside of the United States, you’d be hard pressed to find any orange or yellow cheeses. It’s evidently something that Americans like – no idea why.
However, if you like your food as natural as possible, then only get white cheddar cheese. Those orange cheddars are colored with dyes or carrot by-products (or whatever annatto is). Nothing that changes the flavor of the cheese and generally a ‘natural’ color but sometimes more is not better despite what the cute little girl on the commercial says.
That is the facts of cheese!
