Okay, let's start with what's in the canned shit: Milk is good for you, of course. Water, well... I'm not sure that I need my cheese watered down, but okay. Whey is the icky liquid part of cottage cheese. Canola oil isn't bad for you, as far as oils go, but again... doesn't belong in my cheese. Milk Protein Concentrate? Sure, why not? Less than 2% of salt? Doesn't sound like too much to me. SODIUM CITRATE, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, LACTIC ACID, Etc., etc. I'm going to go ahead and let you Google those for yourself. I'm writing about a topic for a humor site, not a Goddamn thesis.
Now, look at what's in real cheese: Milk, which is still good for you. Rennet, well... if you look up what rennet is, it may put you off cheese for awhile. Let's just say it's all-natural and leave it at that. Starter culture is what makes Bleu Cheese blue. And salt is a natural preservative and just makes everything tastier.
1. No shit! All of that is what's really in there!
2. See how simple that is?
I guess what I'm really trying to say is: Don't get your cheese from a can. Spend an extra buck or two and get the real thing. Your taste buds will thank you, as will the lower parts of your digestive tract.
