Processed cheeses have a very mild semi-soft elastic smooth texture and account for a huge share of cheese sales. Processed cheeses from Wisconsin are a smooth blend of assorted natural cheeses that have been blended and pasteurized to the point where further ripening stops, resulting in a longer shelf life than most cheeses. Wisconsin, the leading state in total cheese production, is also the top producer of processed cheeses.
