Define raw cheese - Temperature and cooking
« on: July 18, 2015, 07:53:44 pm »
Its very hard to find raw cheese in Australia. Although raw milk is illegal, raw cheese isnt, as long as the cheese is heated and processed to a point that satisfies the ruling nazi party. I contacted a cheese maker who imports raw cheese from Switzerland and requested some raw cheese heated no higher than 105 degrees (I read this was the point in which enzymes were destroyed and the cheese was no longer "raw"). He said that is illegal, and I believe he said all raw cheeses made or imported into Australia had to be heated to at least 122. If I buy raw cheese cooked to this degree, am I wasting my time/money? Do I need to make sure it is only heated under 105? I bought a cheese kit online so will make my own if required but that will take a lot of time/effort to make and mature. Oh, and Im after hard cheese like cheddar. I dont want to just let milk sour and scoop off the fermented curds. Tried that and didnt like it.

Make your own. But I generally don't recommend dairy for most people. It's too allergenic, and has too much calcium versus magnesium.

Thanks for your advice. I feel better on dairy, at least small amounts so i think ill continue. I love the taste of raw milk thickened with cream and  blended wth raw honey, banana and some raw eggs.

Be careful eating a mixture like that. You could easily overeat one of the foods in the mixture.
