Cheddar cheese is considered a somewhat hard, matured natural cheese. This is one of the most popular types of cheese in the world, especially in the UK and in the US. The aging of the cheese can be distinguished from the different types of Young curd, Mature, Mild, Vintage forms.
Cheddar cheese is manufactured from fresh cow’s milk by coagulating it with rennet in order to separate the curds and whey. Later, the cheese curd is salted and milled before being molded and left to ripen. The aging process takes between 6 to 24 months.
