    So far I have only used the product to make mac & cheese and in a recipe calling for cheese sauce. Both tasted great. I just wish it was for sale at the store and came in an eight ounce box instead of the huge can I ordered. I am seventy five years old and do not need anything with a 25 year shelf life. At my age I'm taking a chance when I buy green bananas.

    I don't know what the other reviewer is referring too, my can says "stir 1/3 cup cheese powder into 1 cup HOT WATER using a whisk. Continue stirring until smooth. Let stand 3-5 minutes, whisk again. Yields 4 one quarter cup servings." end quote. I've used this cheese blend for over a year, and it's excellent and sooo easy, and it only uses WATER. Mixing 1/3 of a cup and ending with a whole cup of cheese sauce is a deal if you ask me. It's excellent on broccoli, mac and cheese and even used as a dip for potato chips. I have never mixed it with milk or butter...

    Ok, don't expect high quality cheese from Europe here. Think the dry powdered boxed mac and cheese, only I think Augason's is better. If there ever is a food shortage for whatever reason, you'll be glad to have this. It does take quite a bit of stirring to mix it with water though, better to get one of those shaker cups or use a blender if you still have power, and then you can add the powdered butter and milk, also from Augason Farms, to some pasta and it makes a good rendition of mac and cheese. Keep a can handy for whatever emergency befalls you, and you'll be glad that you did.

    Ive heard that these products come half full in a #10 can.Is that true....half full??
    by Putter 2/7/2013
    • The can is full.

    • The cans are filled by pound weight. Settling occurs in transit and this cheese compacts very well. It may be half full but mine have been 3/4 full. Some things don't pack as well like broccoli or beans. Packing is based on pound weight, not the size of the can.

    • Can feels totally full by shaking it. I haven't opened mine. I could hardly lift the potato soup mix I ordered as well. I'm pretty sure they're full

    • No. Mine was about an inch from the top. There is a lot of cheese here.

    • My cheese powder can was about 3/4 or a little more full, remember they sell by weight not volume. Things settle, but a little goes a long way.

    • My can was pretty full. It lasts a long time. Not bad in taste mixed into recipes, either.

    • Water, that's it! You can add powdered milk, whey or milk for added creaminess.

    • I used water and then poured it over rice. I had to use extra cheese powder to get the extra flavor I like.

    • The Cheese Sauce asks for 1 oz of milk. I added only water for the cheese spread.

    • You only need to add water. It's a bit difficult to mix by hand, so use one of those shaking mixer cups, or a blender if your power is working. Now for a good emergency conditions rendition of mac and cheese, I use this cheese powder along with powdered butter and powdered milk with water, and add it to pasta.

    • Cheese SAUCE, not cheese. Water is all you need.

    • It doesn't list ingredients on the container; just says cheese blend powder. It seems like a blend of maybe powdered milk and powdered cheese so I just add water most times, for soups. Adding milk makes it richer and thicker for dips, and they do say mix it with their Augason Farms Butter Powder and milk to make creamy cheese sauce. You can add less liquid and spices for a good spread. I also eat it dry on pop corn.
