If you’re wondering what difference powdered cheese makes or how to use it, the first specialty is that it can quickly melt with milk and butter, making the white sauce for mac and cheese extra rich and creamy. It can also be easily added into soups, casseroles, and steamed vegetables for a hint of cheesy flavor. The cheese popcorn you find in movie theatres or microwave popcorn packets uses powdered cheese as a topping, usually made of cheddar cheese. But buyers must keep a few points in mind.
White Vs. Orange Powdered Cheddar
When browsing through the different kinds of powdered cheese available, one visible dissimilarity is the color as some are orange and some are white, which can concern some people. Since milk is white and cheese is made from milk, the original color cannot be orange. But this can be because of the presence of beta carotene (a red/orange pigment) in the grass that cows graze, which can end up in their milk. However, several cheesemakers also use food coloring (annatto extract) to change the cheese’s color. No matter which kind you choose, the nutritional value and taste remain the same.
Even though cheese is delicious in all its forms, the taste depends a great deal on the quality, and the same is the case for powdered cheese. Buyers should ensure they choose premium-quality powdered cheese made from natural ingredients and flavoring. It should not contain any preservatives, dyes, or chemicals as that can hamper its quality in the long run. Another way to ensure good quality is by going for powdered cheese that is gluten-free, which is especially useful for people wanting to lose weight. Buyers can even choose options that are organic, vegan, non-GMO, and keto-friendly if they prefer.
What More to Consider?
Since cheese in powdered form can be quite messy, buyers should choose efficient packaging that makes the cheese easy to use and easy to store. You can either go with sealed plastic jars with a wide mouth to scoop out cheese or zip-lock/resealable pouches. Some sellers even offer reusable and recyclable jars, a great alternative a buyer can go with. If you want a smooth and creamy texture, you can go with extra buttery powdered cheese offered by some brands.
