Hard cheese — is easily digestible product with a delicate aroma and taste. Those particular cheeses are traditionally included in basic diet of our nutrition.The whole category has a dense creamy texture and covered with natural or wax crust. Hard cheeses are distinguished from other types of cheese by pressing method and curing period. The longer cheese is cured under pressure – the tighter its structure is, and the longer its storing period is. Cheese is not subjected to additional processing, such as smoking or melting. Such cheeses may retain their taste properties from month to year. Against each other hard cheeses differ by shape, taste and sort, depending on milk and curing period.
The unique taste and properties of hard cheese have been always appreciated, but due to the nature of production, for a long time all cheeses were considered a delicacy and were not the product of usual diet. Initially, curing process was slow and low-volume, as practically everything was made manually. Fermentation started in the rump, where affected by animal biocatalyst and natural pressure, thrusting was separated and curd cottage cheese was formed (soft, fresh and white cheese). Further cheese rubbed with salt and spices and stored in small barrels under the press.
Modern technology originated in 1874, when Danish scientist Christian Hansen managed to extract, by chemical means, the necessary biocatalyst. This was a qualitative and quantitative revolution in cheese making - while maintaining the unique traditional recipes, taste and cheese naturality, it has finally started to be produced on an industrial scale. Since then, a valuable delicacy is a very wide diet of our food, and each day makes us happy by variety and subtlety of natural flavor.
Today, specific consumption of cheese in CIS countries is 3-4 kg per capita. Unfortunately, the rate is not very high for world statistics–in Europe the consumption of cheese is up to 13-20 kg. But civilized market relations and modern hi-tech production easily can increase cheese percentage in customer basket– due to stable high quality and product differentiation.
