Ever wanted to add an extra kick to your mashed potatoes, cheese up those old veggies? Quick from scratch pastas add cheese much like parmesan but to suit your need. Love fancying up grilled chicken? A little mixing and a moment later you have a creamy cheese sauce for that smothered delight. And what it would do for the comeback of left overs. A decent size container of powdered cheese like that in the mac and cheese packets on hand would make everyone more creative in the kitchen. This was my first day to Halfbakery and I have enjoyed it alot. mmm Cheesy Croissants with bacon mmmm

Well at least provide a link. [Worldgineer, Oct 04 2004]


       Welcome to HB, krod. I don't want to be unkind but... this site is really more for inventions that have not been invented yet. There's already powdered cheese. Keep dreaming though.

       [darksasami], I don't like the way your link incorporates the word slurry into the production of cheese powder. It just doesn't seem right.
silverstormer, Feb 17 2004

       Mmmmmm, slurry.

       The sachet that comes with Kraft Dinners? Sadly unavailable where I live.

       Actually, over Christmas I was in Phoenix, which is a big test market for some reason. One of the local grocery stores was selling microwave popcorn packets with a can of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese cheese powder. My mom snapped it up and threw away the popcorn--she's wanted to buy the powder by itself for years.

       darksami,Thank you for the welcome. thank you for helping my stress the importance and validity of my idea, waltonfeed site address the wonders of the cheese, yet doesnt give and venue for a large container ammount of the desired product. Thank you Jutta, i stand corrected Captain Dave i salute you!

       Cheese food as opposed to cheese what? Cheese bircks, cheese cars? This always puzzles me and I'm slowly convincing myself that there's a 101 other uses for cheese that everyone else but me knows about.
oneoffdave, Feb 19 2004

       oneoffdave - the expression "cheese food" typically means that the stuff is a cheese-like substance that is generally considered safe to eat. An item can be labelled "cheese" only if it meets certain requirements regarding ingredients and methods. It just so happens that I've been making cheeses lately, so I know a bit about this. It is possible to make a true cheese, and then get it into a powdered form. However, much of the distinction between different kinds of cheeses has to do with the treatment of the curd. So, once powdered, it would be difficult to tell the difference between, say, a cheddar and a monterey jack (and don't get hung up on the colors - most yellow-colored cheeses result from adding annatto to the milk).   

       And yes, there are at least 101 other uses for cheeses, and we're not going to tell you what they are. I can say that a good number of them are related to explosives (my current field of expertise).   

       Anyway, I don't know why I'm writing so much on an idea that jutta has already M-F-D'd. I haven't written anything here in months, and nobody's going to see this now. The presence of my absence shall go nearly unnoticed, like the faint hint of a lingering flatulation in an empty room.

       On very rare occasions, I've seen powdered cheese (i.e. not grated parmesan) cheese for sale by kraft. It's pretty much the same as what is in the packets for Kraft Mac and Cheese.

       Cheese powder is very much baked by all the food ingredients companies in the world. It's cheap and easily made and it's used in all sorts of products.
hazel, Jan 30 2005

       I actually FOUND this at my local grocer. Its the stuff right outta the Mac 'n Cheese packages. I'll see if I can't post a picture.
