Change please[edit]

"Observation that the effect of making milk in an animal stomach gave more solid and better-textured curds may have led to the deliberate addition of rennet." should presumably read "the effect of making CHEESE in an animal stomach" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.143.179.242 (talk) 23:04, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

American Cheese consumption[edit]

Please remove "Today, Americans buy more processed cheese than "real", factory-made or not.[16]", with no replacement text necessary.

Despite the source, I don't think this was ever accurate, and certainly not in 2015. Digging around, I'm finding some contradictory data, but nothing that supports the assertion that processed cheese outsells real cheese. One useful source, the USDA: http://www.ers.usda.gov/media/146945/ldpm19301_1_.pdf. Scroll down to figure 2 and note that the authors are using "American" to refer to traditionally American styles like Cheddar, Jack and Colby, *not* processed cheese, which has its own category. Between the various real cheeses (Cheddar varieties, non-American and cottage), you're looking at between 25-30 lbs. annually per person. Processed cheese sits between 5-10 lb.

Different numbers but the same basic conclusion can be found here (http://www.ers.usda.gov/amber-waves/2014-june/trends-in-us-per-capita-consumption-of-dairy-products,-1970-2012.aspx#.VMcVKNJ4opA), which states that in 2012, Americans ate 33.5 pounds of cheese per person, of which 13 lbs. was processed American cheese. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jonas42 (talkcontribs) 04:36, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
