A better definition of American Cheese would be "mild cheddar". American Cheese can be a true cheese (in which case it is usually sliced, but not with each slice individually wrapped), or American Process Cheese Food (which contains other dairy ingredients, and each slice is individually wrapped, because slices of APCF stacked together would otherwise unite into a single block) Truth be known, APCF is healthier (as it has less fat). APCF is usually about two-thirds the price of American Cheese.

Cheese Whiz is a different thing, it is knife-spreadable and is sharper than American Cheese.

There are also "American slices", a combination of dairy ingredients, vegetable oils and processed protein that can't be called cheese. It is even lower in calories and even cheaper than APCF. It is a sad substitute for cheese, especially If you try to use it as a melted topping (e.g. for Nachos or pizza).
Thanks for this....I tend to only buy "real" cheese...as in the package cannot be labeled "cheese food" (which means a big difference in taste.). American cheese does come labeled as actual cheese and cheese food.

The cheese that McDonalds uses (such as on that Egg McMuffin above) has always seemed like real American- thicker in texture and tastes much better melted.

American cheese on nachos is a sacrilegious suggestion- bite your tongue

I don't even consider cheese whiz as a cheese- more of a junk food for parties*shrugs*

My point was mainly that there is no indigenous American cheese, meaning real cheese made out of milk, salt and its own bacterial culture and ripening process.

Having grown up in the Midwest, of course I know there are nice small dairies around that make good own Cheddar or Emmental.
But that in essence means they are recreating an English or Swiss cheese.

It baffles me that with such good milk as basic ingredient (I drink milk in the US, never in Europe because I hate the taste), nobody ever went ahead to create real cheese with its own bacterial culture and ripening process.

The US supplied the world with many great inventions - why not with own decent cheese???

Too much 'prior art' and no new pathogens worthy of cheese making.
