What is American cheese?
Submitted by BHGFood

American cheeses are any processed natural cheeses that are pasteurized to lengthen storage life. They also have emulsifiers added for smoothness, so these cheeses work well in cheese soups and cheese dips when you want a smooth product. Products labeled as cheese spreads have a higher water content than the processed cheeses.
