Ancient Romans take over cheese production from the Greeks to improve it in quite an interesting way. In accordance with their method, sheep’s and cow’s milk was left to turn sour, sometimes speeding the process by mixing the milk with fig sticks, adding fig juice or adding seeds of wild thistle. It was Etruscans from who Romans learned how to set milk using rennet.
There are also places in the world where no or almost no milk is eaten – for example in China, Japan or Polynesia islands. The reason is simple – many people, especially in Far East do not assimilate milk!
The first document which in quite detail presents the phases of cheese production is a Sumerian relief called ...”dairy plant decoration”. It is dated approx. 3 000 ACN. Cheese was known in Babylonia, but then it was considered luxury product.
