Welcome to a world of Cheesei that dates back into the earliest history of civilization.
It's no small coincidence that it is a cultured food, in the sense of taking care of things.
You don't have to kill the animal and no full calorie is more packed with nutrition than cheese.

And, those enzymes are what makes all the difference, creating the many varieties of cheese from a single source Milk!
