PASTEURIZED PROCESS CHEESE
Pasteurized Process Cheese Is a blend of fresh and aged natural cheese (such as cheddar, colby, etc.) that has been melted, pasteurized, and mixed with an emulsifier and/or coloring.
Pasteurized process cheese is milder in flavor and softer in body than the natural cheese from which it was made.
Pasteurized process cheese products vary in form and flavor. There are American, Swiss and other varieties, which may come in slices, loafs such as Velveta© and spreads such as Cheez Whiz©, and even in cans that dispense the cheese product in a thin stream.
