Cheese “Cheese is a generic term for a diverse group of milk-based food products” All natural un-adulterated Cheese types have the same ingredient listing (Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes). Cheese is an Ancient food who’s origin predate recorded history. The basics of cheese making: Separating the Solids into Curds, and the liquid into whey.
Mozzarella Specifics Made in the Pasta Filata “spun paste” process Curds heated, kneaded and stretched during production Cheese stretches when melted Shorter Shelf Life than typical cheeses Live organisms High moisture Specific Melt Point Young; will not melt, excessive blistering and very tough, due to incomplete migration of milk components Old; oils off, too soft.
Block Vs. Shred Vs. Diced Block cheese will perform better due higher moisture and lack of anti- caking agents. Limited optimum performance window, shorter shelf-life, higher labor costs Shredded cheese allows for convenience and less labor costs. Longer window of optimum performance and longer shelf life versus block. Higher cost. Diced cheese is perceived to allow for better portion control Offers slightly less coverage than shred.
Whole Milk Vs. Part Skim Performance Characteristics Whole Milk has higher oil release (or sheen) and more flavor than Part Skim. WM cooks with less blistering/browning, which is the ‘carmelization’ of milk sugar (lactose). Part Skim has less oil but blisters/browns quicker than Whole Milk product. Whole Milk has a richer flavor and softer texture with more stretch Part Skim melts a bit firmer and has a slightly more dense texture in the bite
Cooking Performance Deck Ovens – These generally produce the best results due to consistent temperatures. These average degrees at approx. 12 minutes. Conveyor Ovens – Designed for speed. These cook at higher temperatures for a shorter time period. Up to 550 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes
