Cheese is a food that is derived from milk and produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. It uses the proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. During cheese production, the milk is usually acidified, and adding the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature. Hundreds of types of cheese from various countries are produced, the styles, textures and flavors depend on the origin of the milk, whether they have been pasteurized, the butterfat content, the bacteria and mold, the processing, and aging.
