MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What is the difference between white cheese and yellow cheese?

If you’re like me you’ve been in the grocery store cheese aisle wondering should I buy the yellow or white cheese? And what’s the difference?!

When it comes to American cheese they are actually both very similar, but not EXACTLY the same thing. Yellow cheese tends to have a higher fat content which makes for the soft texture and rich flavor. White cheese tends to be more dry and crumbly. Flavor wise yellow is sharper and tangy while white is milder.

Personally, I like putting yellow on my burgers. I feel like it grabs onto the meat better. Yum.
