    Cheese is a food derived from milk that is produced in a wide range of flavours, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. Hundreds of types of cheese from various countries are produced. Their styles, textures and flavours depend on the origin of the milk. For improvements in flavour and texture, cheese should be allowed to warm up to room temperature before eating.

    The nutritional value of cheese varies widely. Cottage cheese may consist of 4% fat and 11% protein; some whey cheeses 15% fat and 11% protein. Some studies claim that cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss and American cheeses can help to prevent tooth decay; the calcium, protein, and phosphorus in cheese may act to protect tooth enamel and cheese increases saliva flow, washing away acids and sugars.

    Be careful if you are trying to lose weight - cheese contains a lot of natural fats which may cause weight gain. There are cheeses which have a low-fat content that can be very healthy for you to eat and perfect for keeping your weight balanced. But, if you are trying to gain weight, whether its muscle weight, fat, or bone density, cheese is the healthy way to go. Cheese is full of protein, fat, calcium, and vitamins and minerals that keep muscles and bones strong and healthy.

    The saying "you can't melt cheese twice" (meaning - some things can only be done once) refers to the fact that oils leach out during the first melting and are gone, leaving the non-meltable solids behind.
