Cream cheese by Nonno Nanni

Cream cheese is classified as a fresh cheese because it is not harvested. As a result, it has a short duration once opened. The cream cheese must be refrigerated even if not opened to prevent it from spoiling. The taste is mild, fresh and sweet, but has a slight pleasant taste. At the room temperature, cream cheese easily spreads and gains a smooth as well as a creamy consistency. It is sold in blocks coated with aluminum or in a soft diffusion shape that has the air mounted to make it spreadable directly from the refrigerator.


The spreadable cream cheese is a derivative of milk that can be obtained from milk or cream by adding ferments or rennet or starting from yogurt.

It is also a source of B vitamins, allied to the proper functioning of the immune system, and potassium. Unfortunately, the latter, allied to the health of the heart and arteries, adds about twice as much sodium, a mineral whose consumption should instead be limited just to protect cardiovascular health.


It is good, however, not to exceed with the consumption of creamy spreadable cheese: the fats present in it are in fact above all of the saturated types and their excessive consumption has been associated with the increase in cholesterol in the blood. This product is also a source of non-negligible amounts of cholesterol.
