leicester -

Leicester, also known as Leicester red is a cheese from the hard-textured Leicester region of England and is made using pasteurized cow's milk.

This cheese has been produced since the late 18th century. Reddish orange color in this cheese is caused by natural dyes used are annatto. During World War II, all cheese makers were required to make a national cheese that was like Cheddar cheese and the addition of an annato was banned at that time.

Therefore the color of Leicester cheese becomes pale and is known as red Leicester. Most of this cheese was traded in the Leicester area until it opened a cheese market in the area in 1759. Leicester cheese has many uses and is usually an alternative to Cheddar cheese. This cheese can melt well and can be used to make sauces or salads.
