How do you melt raclet cheese?
The word raclette means "to scrape" and that is how the cheese is eaten. The original herdsman would put a wheel of the cheese above the campfire where it would melt. As it did, they would scrape off the top layer of melted cheese to eat before the rest could melt. In Switzerland, some still melt it over a campfire. However, now there are also raclette machines and grills that are used for melting the cheese. There are special utensils for scraping up the melted cheese and applying it to the desired foods.

Asked by Devin Kling in Swiss Cheese, Dairy Products, Food Science
Why does Swiss cheese have holes in it?
Cheese (all cheese that is) is made by adding bacteria to milk, which produces lactic acid and helps give the cheese its taste. One specific bacteria added to Swiss cheese called Propionibacterium shermani produces carbon dioxide. Due to the density of the cheese, the carbon dioxide forms bubbles, which get larger and eventually burst, leaving the trademark holes. More recent research suggests that these bubbles form around microscopic debris in the milk, which compromises the structure of the cheese in those spots. Swiss cheese has gotten less holey over the years, and some scientists credit that to cleaner modern milking methods—fewer particles means fewer holes. Cheesemakers call these holes "eyes" and can control their size by adjusting the temperature, acidity, and curing time of the cheese.

Can chickens eat cheese?
Yes of course! chickens will eat almost any scraps, thus making them good, diverse animals to keep. They can definitely eat white cheese because there is no dye in it. We tried this with our chickens. Our chickens went mad for the cheese. The one that got almost all of them was our chicken, Chicken Licken. She is white. We notice that chickens that are laying eggs need more protein than our other chicken Chimpmunk who is four months old and not yet laying eggs. Our third chicken, Feather, she eats a lot of worms and stuff (slugs, etc.) and she's laid the most eggs. Because they are so precious we haven't eaten them (the eggs) yet.

Is it safe to eat Swiss cheese while pregnant?
Hello, My wife ate Swiss chesse when she was pregnanat and no problems occured. I have never heard of it ever being a problem however in relation to cheese generally I have seen warning labels on a small number of French / Swiss cheeses recently sold in the UK which are a speciality as they are unpasteurised and hence a risk if pregnant. So as long as you avoid unpasteurised cheese you should be fine. Paul

Read the package for details. Major brands, like Kraft, typically have MSG. Keep in mind that the few ingredients then the less like of msg. Neither item should have naturally occurring gluten.
Asked in Swiss Cheese
Why does Swiss cheese have holes?
Swiss cheese has holes in it because of bacteria passing gas. Contemplating a typical piece of Swiss cheese, the majority of whose holes, by USDA regulation, must measure between 11/16 and 13/16 of an inch in diameter, you may think: Here was a little microbe with a serious case of indigestion. But actually it's the work of armies of microbes, specifically Propionibacteria shermanii. The P. shermanii consume the lactic acid excreted by other bacteria (the ones that cause the milk to turn into cheese in the first place) and belch, toot, and otherwise exude copious amounts of carbon dioxide gas. This produces what the Swiss cheese industry, hoping to distract from the reality of the matter, calls "eyes." It's a beautiful, natural process, with the advantage that it enables cheese makers to charge good money for a product that by law is partly air. However, the air/cheese ratio will be changing soon. It seems Swiss cheese with big holes fouls up modern slicing machinery. So the industry is now asking that the regulations for Grade A Swiss be revised to make the average hole only three-eighths of an inch in diameter -- one quarter the area it is today. Small-hole Swiss is now classified as Grade B, which commands a lesser price.
