Cheese types


Cheese product

Whitehall Specialties Cheese Product is a non-standardized processed and pasteurized cheese made from natural cheese and other wholesome ingredients.

Wide variety of cheese styles including American, Cheddar, Mozzarella, Monterrey Jack and Parmesan Customized to meet your particular needs.

Why use cheese product instead of natural cheese? The difference comes from the other wholesome dairy and non-dairy ingredients that we cook in with the natural cheese to enhance its functionality, stability, shelf life, nutritional profile and cost structure.

Cheese Product can be customized to meet your particular needs. Natural cheeses, because of their standards of identity, cannot. They are what they are, whether they meet your needs or not.

Imitation cheese

Whitehall Imitation Cheeses closely mimic their natural counterparts but do not follow the standards of identity that are imposed on natural cheese producers.

Nearly all standardized cheeses start from milk. When making natural cheese, the protein is separated from the milk through various cultures and enzymes and formed into cheese. That protein is called casein.

Many of Whitehall Specialties’ imitation cheeses start with dried casein. But, since they are not made directly from milk, they must be labeled as imitation.

Dried casein enables us to incorporate other wholesome dairy and non-dairy ingredients to improve the functionality, stability, shelf life and cost of our imitation cheeses.

Imitation Cheese applications include:
Salad bar shreds
Sandwich slices
Pizza toppings
Italian toppings
