Cheese has a long history of providing nutrition.
- Cheese is an ancient food with origins before recorded history. Proposed dates for the origin of cheesemaking range from around 8000 BC (when sheep were first domesticated) to around 3000 BC.
- The terms "Big Wheel" and "Big Cheese" originally referred to those who were wealthy enough to purchase a whole wheel of cheese.
- Nutritionally, cheese is essentially concentrated milk: it takes about 7.1 oz of milk to provide that much protein, and 5.3 oz of milk to equal the calcium in one ounce of cheese.
