Is Cheese Truly Better in France?

Is Cheese Truly Better in France?

The French are well known for their love of cheese, and sometimes even their pretension about it; however, there is science behind why some may prefer European cheese over what you can buy in America, and it starts with the milk. Raw cheese is made from raw milk, which is used straight from the animal without the additional process of removing bacteria known as pasteurization. In America, this kind of cheese is not allowed, even if it is imported from across the Atlantic. Pasteurization is the process of heating a liquid, in this case milk, to a temperature that is sure to kill any harmful bacteria; however, there is good bacteria, which adds both taste and health benefits to the cheese, that is also removed during this process.
