Red Feather Processed Cheese

Red Feather Processed Cheese Delivers on Taste and Quality
Red Feather Processed Cheese is a high quality canned cheese that is really quite tasty.  This processed cheese is very comparable to the cheese that you find in holiday food packages around Christmas time.  While it is not as hard as chedder cheese, it has a much more firm texture than Velveeta.   The ingredients consist of the following:  Cheese (Pasteurised Milk, Salt, Culture, Enzyme), Water, Sodium Citrate, Butter, Salt, Sodium Polyphosphate, Potassium Polyphosphate, Citric Acid, Nisin (to retard spoilage).
Red Feather Processed Cheese has a Best Used Before date of one year from the time of processing.  However, we have received reports that this cheese can last 5-10 years or more if stored in a cool dry area.
This cheese has been quite poplular in the food storage world that past few years and so we decided to put together a brief video on the cheese so you can at least see the cheese and get an idea of its consistency.

As you can see in the video, the cheese is a white processed cheese that is not overly soft but can be used as a spread.  While processed cheese has more soidum and phosphates than we generally care for, a bit of Red Feather Cheese in moderation is really quite enjoyable and is hard to resist!  In an emergency or extended camp this would definitely be a very delicious commodity.
