The first use of cheese as food is not known. References to cheeses throughout history are widespread. "Cheese is an art that predates the biblical era" (1). The origin of cheese has been dated to 6000-7000 b.c. and the worldwide number of varieties has been estimated at 500, with an annual production of more than 12 million tons growing at a rate of about 4% (2).

A plausible tracing of the origin and development of cheese, as a food, around the world has been published (1).
