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)

Hello All, I have removed the phrase "though still rarely considered a part of local ethnic cuisines outside Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, and the Americas." becasue A citation was requested. I found the text was plagiarised from a text from 1918. Much of this section, cheese modern history is plagiarized from the text 'the book of cheese' by Charles Thom. It should be rewritten.
