The broken cheese from the store is not closed together. So you are surprised when it happens to your home cheese.
And when you spend a few minutes rubbing cheese, it is sad to see all your work done.
Fortunately, I know the secret to preventing this from happening.
How did you stop taking cheese?
Cover the crushed cheese with a thin layer of cornstarch. Corn starch works by absorbing a lot of moisture. This means that the cheese will not stick. It is also delicious. does not affect the taste Add 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch per block of crushed cheese.
Cheese is rarely just crushed cheese from the supermarket.
It is often coated with anti-caking agent such as cellulose or potato starch.
Side note: yes, cellulose comes from wood, but it does. all the same This is cellulose in vegetables. You never Eat wood!
This coating absorbs moisture back, which means the cheese will not become sticky and dirty.
Broken cheese may contain preservatives such as natamycin to make it last longer.
Now you know how the manufacturers resist hard drive. You can do the same!
Corn starch is a nutrient that most people have at home and acts as cellulose.
- Sprinkle cornstarch on crushed cheese. 1-2 tablespoons of cheese per cube is enough. Only cheese needs to be well covered.
- Stir in cheese and cornstarch, mix well.
- Store the cheese in the refrigerator or freezer.
If there is no corn starch You can use regular flour instead.
And do not worry about the taste. Corn starch does not change the taste of the cheese at all because it is used less.
Will the extra corn starch melt my chopped cheese?
This is a common but inadequate concern.
Cellulose starch and potatoes inhibit solubility. So pre-cooked cheese is not the best option if you are going to use it in sauces.
But corn starch is different and does not have the same inhibitory effect.
Cornstarch (or starch) will actually help in the melting process, not ruin it!
If you are looking for a recipe for cheese sauce You can suggest adding cornstarch like ‘Insurance does not close‘.
Store the cheese in a plastic bag (not a ziploc bag).
This is an easy exchange. But you may not have thought.
In a plastic bag, all the cheese is stacked together. The cheese on the bottom is eager to coagulate under pressure. The bag is also at risk of cracking if something falls off or is accidentally pushed behind the refrigerator.
In the container, you have more room to spread the cheese. And it takes more pressure. Also, a tough surface means you don’t need to put anything on top of the cheese. it is more secure
If you have a lot of free space (extra air) on top of the container. Place the plastic wrap over the cheese. This will reduce exposure to air and help the cheese last longer.
freezer is not an option for all types of cheese (I made a list of cheeses that may and may not be frozen later.), but it is useful if you want to cut a lot of cheese at once and keep it.
Freezing the cheese will harden the cheese and prevent it from falling. It will also increase the shelf life. (Except it’s Parmesan, which has a lot of shelf life in the fridge anyway.)
but there is a caveat
Fresh cheese will change your skin color. I would not recommend freezing your cheese if you want to use it for cheese making. or have a snack or salad
But if you want to melt the cheese for use in sauces or pizza. Let it freeze first. You will see no change. in the texture once melted cheese.
To become crushed cheese:
- Place the shredded cheese on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for an hour. (Flash Freeze)
- Once frozen, place the cheese in an airtight container and place in the freezer.

This is because the cheese is grated very thinly. So you do not need to remove the cheese before use. You can toss directly from the freezer into any prepared dish.
If you want to be extra careful You can cover the cheese with a thin layer of corn starch. before it becomes frozen
What kind of cheese is best to stick to?

Soft cheese does not work either.
