Today I threw away an empty package that used to hold cheese that labeled the contents as
So if that was natural cheese, than what is the stuff in the other packages?
but that labeling seems backwards.
Cheese is cheese.
‘Natural cheese’ is cheese.
‘Cheese’ as labeled on typical packages is not cheese.
Unnatural cheese is not cheese.
It’s cheese with a bunch of unnatural, non-cheese stuff in there.
So why is that labeled cheese and not real ‘natural’ cheese?
Because the food sellers are more concerned with profit than nutrition or care of the Earth and labelling unnatural cheese as such is not good for selling but labelling high profit cheese containing other unnatural non-cheese stuff as ‘cheese’ and cheese as ‘natural cheese’ are ways to make selling points both ways for more profit,
in case that wasn’t obvious.
Though natural can have other non-cheese stuff in there too
it just has to be ‘natural,’
not processed to the standards of ‘organic’ but not quite Earth destroying either.
So really even ‘natural cheese’ isn’t necessarily cheese.
Cheese is a funny word when written that many times.
