Is wood part of your diet? If you eat American-made grated parmesan cheese, then it likely is!
The FDA began an investigation into parmesan cheese in 2012, looking into the Pennsylvania cheese factory “Castle Cheese Inc”. Their grated parmesan claimed to be “100% real Parmesan” was actually filled with wood pulp and other cheaper cheeses. Castle stopped producing cheese, and their CEO is facing prison and a stiff fine. However, other cheese manufcturers have continued the same practice that got Castle in trouble.
Why is wood pulp found in any amount in cheese products?
