Whoa... cheese is yellow
Have you ever thought about why cheese is, in fact, yellow?
Yeah, neither have I.
But! According to some research I have done at this website, milk contains a yellow pigment called B- carotene. Can anyone guess where that comes from?
Yupp. Green grass.
So, when we are eating our wonderful cheesey delight, we are eating grass. Not yellow grass. Green grass
So, to continue talking about my research, the website said (and I quote)
"The colour is not soluble in water and is thus present in the fat fraction of the milk. When making cheese, the fat is more concentrated, which results in a more yellow colour of cheese as compared to milk."
Which means that...
When eating cheese, we are eating fatty green grass.
I will leave you to ponder.
