Asked in Calorie Count, Cheeses, Mayonnaise

What has more calories cheese or mayo?

User Avatar
According to CalorieKing, the amount of Calories in "average all brands" mayonnaise and cheese are 376 and 400 respectively; however you may want to check with the different brands and varieties, as some cheeses and mayonnaise have reduced fat. It also depends on how much you have portion wise. So in short, cheese has more calories on average per 100 grams. Keep in mind that regular mayo is almost all fat because it's made of oil and a small amount of egg yolk, with just a bit of lemon juice or spice for flavour. Most kinds are going to be 80% pure fat, give or take. No cheese has a fat content that high: more typically high fat cheeses are about 30% fat and many are much lower. Some cheeses, such as triple cream brie, will be much higher in fat.

Can you put cheese in the compost?

User Avatar
No, you shouldn't put cheese in the compost pile. Dairy products, greasy or oily foods, and meat attract foraging wildlife. Generally, once a hungry critter finds a food source, the stop becomes permanent on the animal's nightly rounds.

Asked in Vegetarianism, Cheeses, Ricotta Cheese

Is Sainsbury's ricotta cheese vegetarian?

User Avatar
Yes, eating cheese is not eating meat. It might have rennet (a coagulant) in it, which can be derived from either animal (most common) or vegetable sources. So, depending on how strictly vegetarian you are, you may or may not want to eat ricotta. You can try going on the company's website to see if if specifies the coagulant's source. By law, all vegetarian products in the UK must be symbolised with a green V on the packaging so they can easily be spotted by vegetarians.
Asked in Cleaning, Cheeses

How do you clean hardened cheese off dish brush?

User Avatar
Simple :) Just either pour boiled water onto the hardened cheese, or put it in a bowl/basin of boiled water. It will come off quickly. (This could melt the brush though). Alternatively, just put the brush into the dishwasher with the rest of the dishes and it will be cleaned by the end of the cycle.
Asked in Cheeses, Salt (Sodium Chloride)

Why does a cheese contain sodium chloride?

User Avatar
Salt (sodium chloride) serves as a catalyst and/or a speeder-upper for many reactions, including the ones that turn milk or cream into cheese. There are cheeses that can be made with little or no salt, but they are almost all soft cheeses, ones that are made in a short period of time (such as mozzarella). Aged cheeses pretty much need salt to keep things going until they turn into something that's recognizable as cheddar or gruyere or whatever.

Can you substitute monterey jack cheese with mozzarella cheese?

User Avatar
You can but Monterey Jack undictincted flavor compared to mozzarella. That is why Monterey Jack is usually blended with another cheese like colbly to make colbly jack cheese. It is also blended with jalapeño peppers to make pepper jack cheese. So in my opinion I wouldn't substitute them because the flavor of just monterey jack lane is very different than mozzarella.

Asked in Food Safety, Nutrition, Cheeses

What happens when you eat mac and cheese every day?

User Avatar
Well, since both macaroni and dairy are complex carbohydrates, it may be fine to eat if you follow it up with moderate to vigorous exercise. But if you just sit around after eating it, you're body will change the carbohydrates into fats for storage. And, the cheese is a source of cholesterol. You don't want to clog your arteries with LDL (Bad cholesterol). Long story short? All things in moderation. If you are a hardcore mac 'n cheese fan, trying eating it once a week to avoid excessive weight gain.
Asked in Cows and Cattle, Cheeses

How do cows chew cheese?

User Avatar
Cows don't chew cheese. They're herbivores, they chew grass and hay and such, and chew, when they're sitting around and relaxed, partly digested forage matter that they regurgitated from their reticulo-rumen tract called cud. Milk is produced from cows (normally for their calves, but in the case of dairy cows, for human consumption), and the fatty content of milk is made into cheese and other creamy dairy products like ice cream, yogurt, and butter.

Asked in Food Spoilage, Food Safety, Cheeses

Is mold on cheese safe to eat?

User Avatar
Generally, no. Food that has grown mold is usually a sign of it being spoiled. Consumption of mold can cause health hazards to humans such as respiratory infections. However some cheeses like, blue cheese, are deliberately cultured with mold in it. This probably not only gives the cheese a distinct taste but also helps prevent other molds from establishing themselves thus giving the cheese a longer shelf life.

Do Canadians eat macaroni and cheese?

As a Canadian, I can vouch that in fact we do eat macaroni and cheese such as Kraft Dinner. I personally prefer homemade macaroni and cheese. It can be a survival tactic for those in university and college who know no other way of preparing a meal.
