    This is all a function of global phytosanitary standards and removing technical barriers to trade.

    Buy local. Eat real food. Cook it yourself.

    Bur realize we live in a golden age of average food safety.

    100% of the "cheese" was made in Parma, NY. Next to Rochester.

    It is obvious that's what they mean and I don't need no judge to protect me from that.

    I'm a Parmesan snob. If it ain't Parmigiano Regianno it ain't Parmesan.

    The only thing that should be thrown out is the crap - whatever you want to call it - in that container.

    Other than cellulose being all natural from trees and weeds
    Kraft has a really really long expiration date. Great if you only
    eat spaghetti every month or so. Cost savings!

    They also have a romano version for the gourmets.

    On a useful note, an Italian guy I used to work with turned me on to the parmesan and romano they have at Sams. It is in the cheese case in large plastic bags. (I load some in a glass jar and freeze the rest until needed).

    It goood.

    Another thing to watch for is "coated" snacks, usually with something that resembles chocolate, or cocoa. Watch for the words "flavored", or unique spellings like "choklat". Basically, you may be eating a wax-like concoction that is artificially flavored. MMMMMM...Good!:D

    Another snippet:

    The FDA found that a Pennsylvania-based company, Castle Cheese, Inc. was selling Parmesan cheese that didn't just contain too much cellulose, it didn't contain any actual Parmesan.

    The knock-off Parmesan cheese was made up of other “trimmings of various cheeses” and distributed to thousands of grocery stores across the U.S.​

    It means you rubbed these two items together above your food:

    Durn. I should have titled this thread "I'm not going to buy any more '100% parmesan grated cheese' this year". :(

    there are probably trademark laws restricting the use of the words "Parmigiano" and "Parmigiano Reggiano"

    "Parmesan" is probably a trademark-neutral term that can cover just about anything

    so it's true that it's "100% Parmesan" because that would mean, more or less, "100% whatever"

    everybody wins! hahahaha

    except, you know, your pasta

    Interesting restriction. I checked on Wikipedia:

    Parmigiano-Reggiano (/ˌpɑːrmɪˌdʒɑːnoʊ rɛˈdʒɑːnoʊ/; Italian pronunciation: [ˌparmiˈdʒaːno redˈdʒaːno]), or Parmesan cheese, is a hard, granular cheese. The name "Parmesan" is often used generically for various simulations of this cheese, although this is prohibited in trading in the European Economic Area under European law.[1]
    So "parmesan" means the correct thing in the EU but can mean almost anything in the US.

    We had goat cheese flavored with figs yesterday. We petted the goats that made it. We eat farm to table as much as possible, it's not cheap and it's not convenient, but we feel that it's worth the effort.

    what kind of cheese do not need to be put in the fridge after opening it ? Some cheese need to be in the fridge, otherwise they ll leak pretty bad (>camembert ), and the smell can be nasty too.
