American Cheese- جبنه امريكيه
A mild flavored processed cheese made from a combination of natural cheese and added ingredients. American Cheese can be yellow, orange or white, and is the cheese of choice for cheeseburgers due to its consistency and ability to melt easily. It is readily available in slices, grated, in pastes and spreads.
The taste and texture of different varieties of American Cheese vary considerably, and mostly depend on the percentage of cheese versus additives used during emulsification. Varieties with lower percentages of additives tend to taste more like natural, unprocessed cheese. Depending on the food manufacturer, the color of the cheese (orange, yellow, or white) may indicate different ingredients or processes.
