I have been asked to comment on a simple method for describing the colour or color (US) of cheese. There are several inexpensive ways of doing this. One of the simpler methods is to use a 12-color chart endorsed by the US National Cheese Institute.
The image below is of a slice of cheese compared against two Cheese color charts. Regretfully the colour is not quite right in the charts shown and I will try and get a better image.
