51% VS. 100% Not all slices are
created equal.


American singles, sometimes known as Pasteurized Process Cheese Food (PPCF), are only required to have 51% real cheese. And Real Cheese People® know 51% real cheese is 100% not for them.

WHAT’S THE PROCESS WITH
PASTEURIZED PROCESS CHEESE FOOD?


  1. Pasteurized Process Cheese Food (PPCF) starts with a minimum of 51% real cheese.
  2. It’s then ground and may be mixed with artificial coloring, flavoring, dairy ingredients, water, salt and mold inhibitors.
  3. The PPCF is heated to at least 150 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 30 seconds.

  1. While heating, emulsifiers and acidifiers may be added.
  2. Then the final product, with a minimum of 51% real cheese, is individually wrapped in plastic.
  3. Now it’s officially called Pasteurized Process Cheese Food.
