Furthermore, immigrants have the habit of carrying their culture wherever they migrate, which has a significant impact on the modern food culture of the U.S. For instance, pasta and pizza are common food consumed in the U.S. With upsurge in demand for cheese, advancements in technologies in the cheese industry have led to rapid curing of cheese.
