Caș[1] (Romanian pronunciation: [kaʃ]) is a type of semi-soft white fresh cheese produced in Romania.[2] It is made by curdling sheep or cow milk with rennet, and draining the whey.[3] The resulting cheese is unsalted or lightly salted. If stored in brine, caș turns into telemea after 2–3 weeks.[4]

Caș cheese is also used to make other types of cheese such as Brânză de burduf and Caşcaval.[5]
