Converting milk into cheese is a process that dates back to at least 5000 years ago. Cheese production is actually a food preservation process that allows milk to be preserved. Today, cheese is one of the major agricultural products worldwide. There are many types and varieties of cheese. Depending on the methods of production, different types of cheese have specific and unique flavors, textures, forms etc. This nutritious food product is a good source of calcium, protein, phosphorus and fat. Cheese has a longer shelf life than milk, so it can be stored within a longer period of time.
Before selling their food product, cheese manufacturers have a responsibility to provide an appropriate label on the cheese packaging that accurately describes the product in accordance with legal regulations. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the norms and standards for the labeling of all kinds of cheese products and enforces certain laws regarding public health. According to the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, there are a few important elements the producers need to pay attention to when creating a cheese product label:
Cheese has been part of almost every country’s diet for a long time. Therefore, the cheese market is highly developed, and it is expanding every day. That’s why it is becoming increasingly difficult for cheesemakers to sell their product, regardless of its quality. To be able to reach customers, businesses need to invest a lot of effort in proper product labeling.
Different cheese products often require specific storage conditions. As a result, cheese producers need to be careful with the label type they choose for their product.
