Colby-Jack cheese

Marble cheese is a name given to cheeses with marbled patterns. These are produced by combining either two different colored curds, cheese curds or processed cheeses.


Marble cheese originates from England. They are usually hard, processed cow's milk cheeses like Colby-Jack which combines Colby cheese and Monterey Jack and is most popular in the United States.

Others are produced from a combination of the curds of white and orange cheddars (for Marbled Cheddar), or similar. The marbling is usually not achieved with artificial additives, though cheeses such as Red Windsor and Sage Derby may contain colourings such as Chlorophyll (E140) and Carmine (E120).
