    Kitchen Dictionary: processed cheese

    processed cheese

    Also referred to as American cheese, any of several types of natural cheese that are pasteurized to lengthen storage life and combined with emulsifiers to add smoothness. Some processed cheeses may contain added colorings and preservatives. Products labeled cheese "spreads" contain added liquid for a softer, more spreadable mixture. Processed cheeses keep well, but lack the distinctive flavor and texture of natural cheeses.


    Season: available year-round

    How to select: These are often sold in individually wrapped sandwich slices.

    Substitutions: Cheddar cheese (much more flavorful) OR Swiss cheese (more flavorful)
