When sliced cheese are cheeses referred to in well with slices can be cut. Most semi-hard cheeses ripen between four and six weeks. Their consistency is predominantly smooth to firm and their variety of flavors ranges from mild to strong.
Sliced cheese does not mature as long as hard cheese . Due to their shorter ripening time, they contain more water than hard cheese, which makes them softer and easier to cut than this. The water content in the fat-free cheese mass (wff) is greater than 54% and at most 63%, so that some types of both cheese groups have similar properties. Sliced cheese is popular for breakfast and in the evening as cold cuts with bread . They can also be used very well in salads or when gratinating dishes ( gratins ).
