It’s important that we keep consumers safe from any misleading or false information when it comes to what’s in their food.
That’s the government’s job? Here in the US we just rely on the invisible hand of the free market. What’s the worst that could happen?
(Actually, I really like Dr Pepper. Just had to make the joke)
So you’re in the “pizza is a hot open-faced sandwich” camp, not the “pizza is a savoury pie” camp?

So what’s an observant Jew doing selling cheese-and-turkey-ham, anyway? Or is it cheese-substitute-and-turkey-ham?
That’s kosher, I guess.
If it’s not cooked in the same oven as the cheese
Still better than Lancashire, where it’s
Analogue pizza cheese’, presumably. Or is that an obscure Eurodisco subgenre?
I dread imagining digital pizza cheese!
Not at all. I’m in the camp that believes pizza is bruscheta for kleptomaniac arsonists.
Good point. Then they are definitely Muslim.
I have a friend who moved to Leicestershire from NYC. He refuses to eat the pizza.
That makes no sense - if you care about what you put in your body, you should care whether it’s real cheese or not, I would think.
Depends on what is in the substance. The substitute of some substance may be worse, or may be better, than the original. See for example tofu (“to-phooey”).
In case of comfort foods, however, the taste and associated variables take precedence.
If you eat healthy, you won’t live longer. But it’ll feel that way.
Why would someone do that?
There are many different reasons for being vegetarian…
Fair 'nuf. It’s your body, do as you like! I just hope they’re not making that cheese substitute out of animal products. For your sake and mine.
Is cheese expensive? Why use a cheese substitute? I recall asking about this before…
From what I’ve read the main expense in a Pizza is the cheese? So if they are building a low-cost pizza, that’s what they’ll cut corners on – mediocre cheese.
The answer to your question depends on who is making the pizza, what the exact toppings are, and the quality and amount of each topping. Obviously, a chain like Papa John’s or Domino’s will get better pricing on a per unit basis than will a mom-and-pop operator because of greater volume and bargaining power. But, as a ty…
does go into a cheese substitute, exactly??
Isn’t “processed cheese” still cheese in some form?
Processed cheese (also known as prepared cheese, cheese product, or cheese singles) is a food product made from cheese (and sometimes other, unfermented, dairy by-product ingredients), plus emulsifiers, saturated vegetable oils, extra salt, food colorings, whey or sugar. As a result, many flavors, colors, and textures of processed cheese exist. Its invention is credited to Walter Gerber of Thun, Switzerland, in 1911. Processed cheese has several technical advantages over natural cheese, includi...
“A food product made from cheese” … also
Competitors referred to it as embalmed cheese
You asked, and also answered yourself in that very post?
Processed cheese is
significantly cheaper than proper cheese here in Canada, I don’t know about the US. Though I presume the “cheese substitute” being used in the case of this story isn’t processed cheese, that would be… Gross.
Fun aside: it was quite a shock to my Irish wife to learn just how expensive cheese is here (Canada) compared to Ireland.
