Calves’ Stomachs or Genetic Engineering? Okay, our milk is standardized, pasteurized, and color-adjusted, and bacteria have been busily fermenting it. Now, it’s time to coagulate it, turning fluid milk into solid curd. To do this, cheese makers add rennet—enzymes that break apart milk proteins and fats. Traditionally, rennet was taken from calves’ stomachs, and Widmer’s still uses this source. The liquefied calf extract looks a bit like tea as it is poured into the mix. Most cheese makers use genetically engineered rennet.

That’s roughly 30 pounds of extra cheese this year, next year, and the year after that. S. aspx#26705. Accessed November 14, 2015. What does 30 extra pounds of cheese mean, measured in calories? Take a guess. Maybe a thousand? No, there are more calories than that in just one pound of cheese. Maybe ten thousand? Twenty thousand? Actually, the 30 pounds of cheese that the average American has added to his or her annual diet hold 55,000 calories. You could drink a can of Coke every day and not get to 55,000 calories.

There is no one better at taking dry, esoteric scientific data and making it not only understandable, but also entertaining!
