Funny you should ask as I am a Food Scientist for Kraft Foods, the maker 
of Cheez Whiz. Without giving away proprietary information, Cheez Whiz is 
a processed cheese which is made from excess trimmings of natural cheese. 
These trimmings are placed into a very very large blender along with some 
salt to emulsify or soften the cheese, some colors, and preservatives. 
This is all heated up and blended and them sent to a packaging machine 
where it is filled into jars while still warm and sealed aeseptically to 
prevent bacterial contamination or spoilage. Enjoy!!!
