A. GENERAL INFORMATION No. 28(1)
GUIDELINES FOR CHEESES
USE OF DEHYDRATED CHEESES
Two types of dehydrated cheeses are used - dehydrated American cheese and dehydrated cottage cheese.
a. Cheese, Cottage, Dehydrated
(1) USE - Dehydrated cottage cheese may be substituted in any recipe using fresh cottage cheese.
(2) PREPARATION - Measure 8-1/2 cups water (70� F.) into a shallow serving pan. Pour 1-No. 10 cn (1 lb 1
oz) canned dehydrated cottage cheese evenly over the water. Stir gently to wet all particles of cheese. Let stand 5
minutes, then stir gently. If more water is needed, sprinkle 1/2 to 1 cup water over cheese. Chill rehydrated cheese
thoroughly before serving (3 to 4 hours).
(3) SUBSTITUTION - Rehydration ratio - 1 pound dehydrated cottage cheese to 4 pounds (2 qt) water.

b. Cheese, American, Processed, Dehydrated
(1) USE - Dehydrated American processed cheese may be substituted in any recipe using processed American cheese.
Rehydrate cheese before adding to any recipe to eliminate any un-rehydrated cheese in the end product. To store
dehydrated cheese after being opened, place unused portion in a tightly covered container to prevent absorption of
moisture. Refrigerate if possible.
(2) PREPARATION - Add water to cheese and mix until blended. For a moist semi-solid cheese, such as for an
appetizer or omelet, use 1 lb (1 qt) dehydrated cheese and 1 cup water. For a semi-fluid cheese for sauces (better volume
substitute), use 1 pound (1 qt) dehydrated cheese and 2 cups water.
