Cheese is a favorite addition to hamburgers, sandwiches, nachos, salads, pasta, and more. This versatile dairy product has been a part of the human diet for a very long time.

In fact, it’s likely been around for since humans first took milk from cattle.

Cheese likely originated as a means of preserving milk for later consumption. Raw milk doesn’t last long, and as it sours, it separates into curds and whey (just like in the children’s song).

The solid curds can be salted and pressed, then aged to become different types of cheese. Some researchers believe the first cheese may have arisen by accident when travelers carried milk in skin bottles.

Hundreds of varieties of cheese are eaten around the world. These may be made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep, water buffalo, llamas, yaks, horses, and even camels.

Why are images of cheese often depicted as a triangle or wedge? Many types of European cheeses are aged in wheels - round, flat circles of cheese. Wedges are sliced from the cheese wheel in the same manner as slices are cut from a pie.

You can see a popular culture example of this in many cartoons and in the Shopkins line of children’s toys, which features cheese shaped characters such as Chee Zee, Charlie Cheese, and Swiss Miss.
