What's Mozzarella Cheese?
Made traditionally in Italy from buffalo milk, mozzarella cheese can also be created using milk from sheep, goats and cows. It isn't aged and goes through a process known as pasta filata. The formed curds are heated in whey or water until stringy. This cheese is then stretched, kneaded until smooth and molded into balls of different sizes. Cow milk varieties of mozzarella are what's commonly found in grocery stores.
Why Use Low-Moisture Mozzarella?
Low-moisture mozzarella has a longer shelf life. Unlike fresh versions of this cheese, it's soured longer and carefully dried to create a saltier taste along with a denser texture. The low-moisture allows this part-skim mozzarella cheese to brown and stretch with ease when heated.
