Does Cheddar Cheese Have Health Benefits?
Member's Mark Extra Sharp White Cheddar Chunk Cheese contains some surprising health benefits. This extra-sharp cheddar is a good source of calcium, a key nutrient for healthy bones and teeth. The recommended daily allowance of calcium for men and women aged 19 to 50 is 1,000 mg. One ounce of that sharp cheddar cheese will provide 20 percent of the RDA.
An ounce of any cheddar, from white cheddar cheese to organic cheddar cheese, contains 7 g of protein. Because it's fermented, cheese may help boost healthy gut bacteria. This extra-sharp cheddar cheese is also gluten-free.
How Is Extra-Sharp Cheddar Cheese Made?
A typical extra-sharp white cheddar is made from cow's milk which is cultured, meaning manufacturers add a starter bacteria to acidify the milk. Once acid has developed, rennet is added and curds form. The watery whey is drained, leaving behind more concentrated curds, then heated to 100 degrees F.
In the cheddaring process, curds are formed into big slabs which are piled together and flipped over many times, making them grow denser and release more whey. The pressed curds pass through a mill before being pressed into molds to drain further and age.
The best sharp cheddar cheese is aged between 1 1/2 and 2 years. As cheddar ages, the flavors become deeper and more complex.
What Can I Do With White Cheddar Cheese?
Member's Mark Extra Sharp White Cheddar Chunk Cheese is great for snack slices, shredding and cubing. Use this extra-sharp cheese to stuff peppers, add extra oomph to meatballs, to top tacos, pizzas and quesadillas, and more.
