Dried grated cheese

Cheese is among the most popular toppings used in the food manufacturing industry. Using fresh cheese can be challenging though (short shelf life, refrigeration required, moist and sticky). However, dried cheese can offer a solution. By extremely drying fresh cheese (moisture content < 3%), real cheese becomes shelf stable with a shelf life of over a year outside the refrigerator, while preserving the nutrients and increasing the ease of industrial processing.
