Must Read: I just don't get it...
I had grill cheese today for lunch..... *Good Stuff*
Answer me this.....
As I was sitting around while the stove heated up I had an urge to read the package of cheese. In the Nutritional Facts it says that there is a half cup of milk in a single peice of cheese..... How in gods name do you get a half cup of milk into a single peice of cheese????

It probably means either of two things:
1. The cheese contains about the same nutrients as a half cup of milk
2. Half a cup of milk was used in making the cheese
Or it could just be total marketing BS.

It's becouse when it's made into cheese it's not in the state we're used to seeing it in.

Yeah, it's probably concentrated milk. Or.. something. I'd go with number one, please.

Maybe it's powdered milk? (gross ****)

Slightly off topic..but has anyone ever had warm powdered milk? Now THAT'S gross. I remember years ago at my grandma's she had a pitcher of powdered milk she hadn't chilled properly and all of us kids had a glass. To this day I fight nausea thinking about that.

Powdered milk! Its like the **** in macaroni and cheese thats not gross...Dont they remove the whey protien?

They run the milk through WinZip before they install it in the cheese.
