Cheese Warehouse

Does cheese need to be refrigerated?

There are many type of cheeses. Some do require refrigeration, while others do not. Here at Gilman Cheese we manufacture both shelf stable and refrigerated cheeses. The deciding factor comes down to moisture in the cheese. Cheese manufactured (depending on particulates) with a moisture content of 43% or less can be considered shelf stable. Cheese manufactured with a moisture content 44% or higher would be considered a refrigerated cheese.
