Sliced cheese seems innocent enough, right? Wrong, after you watch the following video you will never touch the stuff again.
Leave a slice of cheese on a windowsill, and it will only darken and curl never mold like regular real cheese. Light a slice of cheese on fire, and it won’t melt like real cheese, so that leaves us all to the question is it real cheese at all?
Regular cheese, like cheddar, for example, is made by heating milk, stirring in enzymes and cultures, separating the curds from the whey, adding salt and knitting the curds into a block or wheel to age. Pasteurized American slices are a mixture of already made cheeses that are reheated, blended, pasteurized and mixed with an emulsifier to provide a very uniform slice. Most store bought prepackaged slices are made with well over 20 ingredients. If you look very closely on the package of “cheese”, you will only see the word cheese appear once! After the word processed and before the word product, so processed cheese product is what you are eating.
“In 2002, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to Kraft that Velveeta was being sold with packaging that described it as a “Pasteurized Process Cheese Spread”, which the FDA claimed was misbranded because the product declared milk protein concentrate (MPC) in its ingredients listing. Velveeta is now sold in the US as a “Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product”, a term for which the FDA does not maintain a standard of identity, and which therefore may contain MPC.”
It cannot legally be called cheese; it has to be called cheese food or product, but never cheese.
So you have to ask yourself what exactly are we putting into our bodies?
