What are cheese curds?
Cheese curds are fresh cheese solids before they’ve been pressed or aged. Cheese Curds have the same firmness and density as cheese, but with a springy texture. Fresh curds squeak against the teeth when bitten into, a defining characteristic due to air trapped inside. Curds have a mild flavour and are sometimes somewhat salty.

During the cheesemaking process, curds begin to form when the milk has been acidified and coagulated. It is then cut and heated to separate the liquid (known as whey) from the solids (curds). The curds then go through a process known as cheddaring to help release moisture and give them their famous squeaky texture.
