FDA may destroy America's real cheese industry

http://www.forbes.com/sites/gregorym...eese-industry/
(highlights)
Quote:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an executive decree banning the centuries old practice of aging cheese on wooden boards. One bureaucrat within the FDA, without surveying all of the scientific literature, and without public commentary, has rattled hundreds of small businesses across the United States. Consumers who eat any kind of aged cheese should prepare for a potentially catastrophic disruption in the market for artisan, non-processed cheese.

Corporate cheese makers like Leprino and Kraft will be able to weather this regulatory storm — they don’t make cheese, they manufacture cheese, and as such they do not follow the centuries old artisan techniques. But for small businesses and artisan cheese makers, wood boards are in fact essential to the making of cheese. As cheese expert Gordon Edgar writes, “wood creates a beneficial environment for cheese. After all, what is cheese but a great achievement of the microbe community?” Edgar notes that wood is essential to the flavor of artisanal cheeses, it distinguishes it from the large manufactured cheeses.

In sum, small businesses who specialize in artisan cheeses will likely be destroyed by this decision.

To make matters worse, the FDA is acting without legal authority.

The government knows what's best for you.

Also note, the FDA bureaucrat who made this ruling is a former employee of Leprino.. which is a large cheese manufacturer.

The funny thing is that a lot of bacteria and mold that is used to make cheese, are themselves anti-bacterial.

Of course this is the same agency that said caffeine and alcohol is bad if its in a can but not if a bartender mixes it for you.

I'll bet Big Cheese is behind this to put their artisan competitors out of business. It tastes better. Meh! I'll import from France, Italy, Holland and elsewhere.

Aha! The missing key to the matter. I missed it before I posted. This is typical operating basis for the FDA.

Quote:
imported cheese will also be affected by the newly articulated rule. I spoke to Rob Kaufelt, the owner of Murray’s Cheese in New York, and he provided the following list of European cheeses that are commonly ripened or aged on wood:

Beaufort
Comté
Reblochon
Abondance
Vacherin Mont d’Or
Salers
Parmigiano Reggiano

In case you missed that: Parmigiano Reggiano. In short, this rule, if consistently enforced, will both throw an enormous wrench into many American cheesemakers’ operations and drastically shake up the availability of many beloved European cheeses.

Remember. Techniques of manufacture that evolved over hundreds of years to be as safe as possible are trumped by some government flunky who may not even understand how the process of manufacture makes the food safe.

Next up I am sure they will be going after things like ceviche, beef tartare, and sashimi.

A) Not real cheese
B) Rich enough to not be affected by the decision made by a former Big Cheese Product manufacturer.
