Grated cheese (or shredded cheese in the United States) is a type of cheese that has gone through the process of being grated. Typically, aged hard cheeses are used for this purpose. A hand grater can be used to manually grate the cheese, or cheese can be bought already grated. Commercially produced grated cheeses are often blends of more than one variety of cheese, such as Pecorino Romano and Parmesan.
