About this item
Hook's World Champion Colby is a washed curd cheese. This is the traditional way of making Colby and gives the cheese little tiny openings and a sweeter flavor than a cheddar. Washing the curd washes the lactose or milk sugar off of the curd. In traditional cheddar the lactose is not washed off and the starter bacteria feed on the milk sugars changing the cheese to give it a more acidic flavor. This does not occur in Hook's traditional Colby.
