World's oldest cheese discovered in 3,200 year-old Egyptian tomb

The world's oldest cheese has been found in a 3,200 year-old Egyptian tomb

In ancient Egypt, milk had to be consumed shortly after milking or else it would spoil without refrigeration, so it was often turned into cheese and other fermented products like yogurt.

It was buried in the 19th dynasty tomb of the Ptahmes, mayor of the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis.

"One of these contained a solidified whitish mass, while a canvas fabric which might have covered it or used for its preservation was found in one of the fragments of the jar".

"The material analysed in this study is probably the most ancient archaeological solid residue of cheese ever found to date".

Brucellosis is still around today, and present in Australia - past year there was concern about the disease spreading from pigs to humans and dogs in Queensland and New South Wales.

Despite finding the cheese, scientists have not been able to find the mummified body of Ptahmes nor the rest of his family.

After dissolving the sample, the researchers purified its protein constituents and analyzed them with liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry.

Brucellosis symptoms may include fever, joint pain and fatigue.

According to The London Economic, scientists determined that this very special and ancient cheese was made by using a combination of cow's milk mixed with either the milk of sheep or goats.

It was initially unearthed in 1885, but got lost under drifting sands, and was then rediscovered in 2010.

It's typically the result of eating unpasteurized dairy products.

A jar found contained solidified whitish mass.

They also found signs of a bacterium that causes the potentially deadly disease brucellosis, which spreads from animals to people via unpasteurised dairy products.

If the preliminary analysis is confirmed, the sample would represent the earliest reported biomolecular evidence of the disease, the researchers noted.

Alongside the jar, the archaeologists found a canvas cloth that they believe was used to cover or preserve the jar's contents.

During the 2013/2014 excavation season, Cairo University archeologists found broken jars at the site.

Study of the canvas fabric found that it was suited to storing solids rather than liquids.
