Fact of the Day: White Cheddar

While cheddar cheese is often a rather vibrant orange, it is an artificial color. Cheddar's true shade is more of a pale yellow.

That's interesting - it is mostly pale yellow here in Germany and the UK!

The white is so bad, keep the Cheddar cheese in it's original colours, pale yellow.

Well I never knew that. I don't like orange cheese anyway.

We call that "white Cheddar" but yes, it's the natural colour of it.

Can't be any worse than the coloring stuff they inject into that neon orange nacho cheese sludge, right?

I only heard of orange cheddar cheese...I love mac & cheese. Here in Italy we don't have either...White or orange.

I don't care what color it is, I scarf cheddar cheese up no matter what!! One of my fav snacks.

Strange, I always say I like orange cheddar better than white cheddar. I guess a lot of it is just in my head.

I did not know that. I think that's good--otherwise we might not be able to so easily differentiate it from the many other kinds of white cheese!

Funny how foods are different colors in different countries. In Italy orange juice is red.

Adam said...

Well that's not artificial, moro oranges are very popular there and they are red not orange on the inside.

I had no idea! I would prefer they leave off the artificial coloring.

I knew that the orange one had artificial colouring. I sometimes wonder why I can only find the sharp cheddar in orange, I would prefer it to be white.
