Soft-ripened cheeses are aged just enough to let the rind mature, while the paste stays creamy. They are distinct from hard cheese and pressed cheese, which are either matured until they get a harder texture, or are put in a cheese press to remove the moisture and force the cheese to harden.
The texture of cheese is determined by moisture content, which depends on the pressure with which it is packed as well as the length of time it has been aged. Semi-soft cheeses are generally high in moisture content and, depending on their age, range from very mild in flavor to very pungent. Semi-soft cheeses have a smooth, creamy interior with little or no rind
As the name suggests, hard cheese is firm. Often savory, it can be divided into two categories: hard (such as Parmesan), and semi-hard (such as Gouda). Production involves separating and draining most of the whey before pressing the curd, which is then either brined to create a hard rind or waxed.
