Not only did the high level of moisture make it very complicated to process cheese on existing dry production lines, but an even greater limitation was the short shelf life and the need for chilled storage of this fresh cheese. This made that cheese as an ingredient in dry snack products wasn’t an option. The only alternative available to the food manufacturing industry was cheese powder, giving snack products a cheese taste, but it lacked the visual experience of real cheese.
