Does anyone know the chemical formula of cheese?

In summary, the conversation revolves around the speaker's interest in finding information on mixtures, solutions, suspensions, gels, and sols of different compounds and their interactions. They mention wanting to do a presentation on this topic but may have to switch to a presentation on ionisation energy. The other person suggests looking into natural products chemistry and casein, but warns that a chemical formula for cheese may not be found. The speaker ultimately decides to stick with the presentation on ionisation energy.

I'm interested in trying to find this out because I'm wondering if i could artificially make it from school materials...also i want to do a presentation on it tommorow, if i can't find the relevant information I'm going to have to do my presentation on ionisation energy, which is easy, and which everyone already knows...so it will be boring for us all...help me?! please :confused:

maybe even milk?

Or apples? Or dirt? Or roast beef? You are talking about mixtures, solutions, suspensions, gels, sols of many compounds, most of which have not been isolated, identified, and characterized, and of the interactions of those compounds with each other and with the interfaces among the various sol, gel, and solution phases.

You can browse "natural products chemistry" for interesting tidbits, look at "casein" one of the proteins in milk and its uses, commercial preparation of milk sugar (lactose), suspension of fats and oils in water, but you ain't going to find a chemical formula for cheese.

Oh i see...looks like i'll just do the presentation on ionisation energy then :-p

Thanks for bothering to reply though

Seems like two rather unrelated projects.

What else are you allowed to present on?
 

Related to Does anyone know the chemical formula of cheese?

1. What is the chemical formula of cheese?

The chemical formula of cheese varies depending on the type of cheese. However, the general formula for cheese is C20H32O14, which represents the main components of cheese: water, fat, protein, and carbohydrates.

2. Is cheese a pure substance or a mixture?

Cheese is considered a mixture because it is made up of different components such as water, fat, protein, and carbohydrates. These components are not chemically bonded together, rather they are mixed together.

3. Can you make cheese using a chemical formula?

No, cheese is made through a fermentation process using living organisms such as bacteria and fungi. These organisms interact with the components of milk to produce cheese.

4. What gives cheese its unique flavor and texture?

The unique flavor and texture of cheese is a result of the different components present in cheese, the type of bacteria and fungi used in the fermentation process, and the aging process. Each type of cheese has a unique combination of these factors, resulting in its distinct flavor and texture.

5. Is cheese a healthy food option?

Cheese can be a part of a healthy diet, but it should be consumed in moderation. Cheese is a good source of protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients. However, it is also high in saturated fat and sodium, so it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
