Are you ready for cotton candy-flavored processed cheese? If that’s not your taste, how about green apple, banana or chocolate flavors? I sampled and liked them all, and can see them as snacks or desserts for children.
The Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research developed the flavors and served the cheeses at the International Cheese Technology Expo in Milwaukee in April. CDR, housed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is a leading dairy research facility in the United States. The researchers there work to solve a lot of problems facing dairy processors, such as reducing sodium while maintaining taste and texture in cheese.
