The calculator below is based on a model developed by Giles and Lawrence (1973) to predict the grade value of Cheddar cheese. Instructions on how to use the calculator are given below. Note that the pH and other values should be obtained from 24-hour old cheese.

Before using this calculator you must accept that the values obtained are for educational purposes only and are not warranted in any way! You should also understand the limitations of the model before using the results. Similar calculators can easily be developed for other varieties.
