Heating Raw Milk Cheese

Answered on August 19, 2014

Is it bad to melt raw milk cheese? I've seen some debate over cooking with raw milk. The heating basically acts the same as pasteurizing. I'm wondering if melting the cheese on my omelet at a low temp is destroying the benefits of have raw milk cheese.

Yeah...at least get grass fed...the whole raw thing is much more important for when your straight shooting the milk.

And if so, do I go with grass-fed milk cheese and don't bother with the raw? Assuming I continue melting...which is hard not to.

Pasteurization = cooking. Though not all pasteurization methods are created equal.

Heating will definitely destroy a lot of the benefits of eating raw cheese. However, that doesn't mean it's "bad" for you. If you have access to grass-fed cheese, it will have already been heated. But, unless you prefer the flavor or grass-fed or can get the grass-fed more inexpensively it doesn't really make any difference since the end result will essentially be the same.
