Cheese manufacturers use spider-like insects and fly larvae to impart particular flavors and aromas to certain cheeses.
Cheese manufacturers may also add aluminum to cheese to improve sliceability (see Aluminum in Vaccines vs. Food), just as the poultry industry adds arsenic to the diets of chickens to improve carcass coloration (Arsenic in Chicken). The farmed salmon industry also artificially colors the flesh of their fish (see Artificial Coloring in Fish) and the egg industry tries in vain to compete with greens by adding plant pigments to chicken feed (Egg Industry Blind Spot). Please feel free to browse through the other videos on questionable industry practices and hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects.
