Does anyone know why raw cheddar cheese isn't orange?? I've noticed also that when it melts it becomes kind of transparent. Anyone know why raw cheese looks so much different than pastuerized cheese? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

I'm pretty sure that orange cheddars are dyed. So, I'm guessing raw cheese producers don't like to dye their cheeses...<br><br>
I buy mostly aged white cheddar myself. Orange cheese seems weird to me!

I figured that must be it but, I never thought that they would actually be dying cheese <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">. That's so weird...well... thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

You can buy pasteurized cheddar that is white also. I think annatto is usually used as the coloring for things like butter and cheese.
