Some of the popular California cheeses are Cheddar, Mozzarella, Pepper Jack and Monterrey Jacks. For those who prefer artisanal cheeses, there are also blue cheese, smoked cheeses and organic cheeses from California, all marked with the seal “Real California Milk”.
Malaysia Country Representative for CMAB Eddie Saw said more Malaysians are starting to appreciate the quality of California dairy products like cheeses and ice creams that carry the Real California Milk seal. The cheeses are so good that you can enjoy them as they are anytime of the day. Many Malaysians are now starting to include cheeses in their cooking.
“Different cheeses offer their own unique quality and function – which open up a whole world of culinary possibilities via a wide selection of cheesy indulgence. It is important to note that cheeses that carry the Real California Milk offers are authentic natural cheese. Our cheeses use 100% real milk from cows in California and have won awards in the United States as well as abroad,” enthused Eddie.
A total of 20 social media influencers donned their chef hats and created their own cheese platter which combines an assortment of Real California cheeses with various food items.
The cook-off session was held to share the quality of California dairy and cheeses, especially those with the “Real California Milk” seal.

Chef Barbara elaborated, “One ounce of natural cheese, such as Cheddar, Jack, or Mozzarella, contains approximately 20% of a person’s recommended daily calcium intake. Those who are lactose-sensitive, or lactose-intolerant can still enjoy cheese if they eat natural hard (aged) or soft-ripened varieties, which contain little or no lactose.”
