Say Cheese!





A friend of mine whose working in Scotland as a nurse is now travelling around Europe armed with a powerful camera and european travel insurance. She sent me some naughty pictures of european man wearing traditional costume. Sorry I can’t share it with you because this blog is exclusively for foodies only, lol! Anyway, here is a picture of a cheese store she has found while strolling on the streets of Edinburgh. She knew that I love cheese so much. I really do envy her.  Cheese according to Wikipedia is milk-based food product. It consists of proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. It is produced by coagulation of the milk protein casein. Most cheeses are acidified to a lesser degree by bacteria, which turn milk sugars into lactic acid, and then the addition of rennet completes the curdling. Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Cheese is more compact and has a longer shelf life than milk. The pleasure of eating cheese does not end in taste but it also beneficial to our health. According to study, eating cheese is good to your heart, help prevent tooth decay, and believe it or not, help loss weight.  It also lower down blood pressure and reduce abdominal fat, blood pressure and blood sugar.
