It takes approximately ten pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese.

Cheese is produced by draining the whey, or moisture, from milk after its protein hardens. Acids aid in this process and enzymes or microorganisms may be added to cheese to produce these acids.

Some cheeses, such as blue cheese, brie and gorgonzola are exposed to mold which helps them to age. Cheese can be made from a variety of different milks including cow, sheep, goat, buffalo, horse and even camel.

Cheese is an important food source because it travels well, has a long life, and is high in fat, protein and vitamins.
