The folks who make cheese in Wisconsin are happy with a proposal at the statehouse that would define what cheese is.

The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association yesterday said it is thrilled to see a State Senate panel approved two pieces of legislation that would define cheese. Both spell-out that cheese comes from animals, as opposed to nuts or plants.

The idea is to show the difference between real cheese and vegan cheese. The Cheese Makers’ John Umhoefer says it is unfair to let companies use the term cheese, when their products are anything but.
