What Is a Cheese Curd?


Cheese curds are a staple for those who live in Wisconsin and other cheese-producing states, but they usually are a mystery to others. Cheese curds can be a tasty snack and a great way to get your daily recommended allowance of dairy.


  • The cheese curds are the actual cheese before it is aged and cured. Technically, the best time to eat a cheese curd is right after the curd has been created and pressed.


  • Cheese curds have a salty taste that resembles cheese. Curds often are as dense as regular cheese, with a more mild flavor.


  • Cheese curds usually are found in areas that have cheese processing companies. Cheese curds do not keep well and must be consumed soon after they are made.


  • Cheese curds generally follow the color of the type of cheese they come from. The most common, cheddar cheese curds take on a yellow or orange hue.

Cooking And Eating Methods

  • Cheese curds can be eaten in multiple ways. They can be eaten fresh, they can be melted for food, or they can be battered and fried.
