Pasteurized, Process American 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 according to FDA’s Standard of Identity.
Process cheese may be frozen, however it is not recommended. Previously frozen cheese is best used crumbled. Thaw frozen cheese as slowly as possible, in the refrigerator, to prevent moisture loss. If you plan to melt it, bring cheese to room temperature first.
• Pasteurized Process American Cheese is milder in flavor and softer in body than the natural cheese from which it was made, and slices and melts well.
• Blended cheese is not recommended for grinding , grating, or shredding.
• Cook dishes containing process cheese at low temperatures since it toughens and gets stringy at high temperatures.
