About Queso Fresco
Queso fresco is the most widely used cheese in Mexican cooking. Although it softens when heated, it does not melt, and therefore keeps its character. This cheese is mild, yet slightly salty and tangy, with a firm texture. Like other Fresh cheeses, Queso Fresco is lower in fat and sodium than aged cheeses.
Fresh cheeses have the shortest refrigerator shelf-life of all the cheese categories, varying from a few days to two weeks according to the cheese. Most Canadian Fresh cheeses are packaged and bear a "best before" date, so check that date and keep your cheese refrigerated.
Fresh cheeses like Queso Fresco are not the best cheeses to freeze because of the water they contain. However, it freezes better when grated.
