Beyaz peynir Turkish pronunciation:  (meaning "white cheese" in Turkish) is a brine cheese produced from sheep, cow or goat milk. "White cheese" is salty, and made from unpasteurized milk. The cheese has a slightly grainy appearance and is similar to feta and sirene varieties.

Beyaz peynir is produced in a variety of styles, ranging from non-matured cheese curds to a quite strong mature version. It is eaten plain, for example as part of the traditional Turkish breakfast, used in salads, and incorporated into cooked foods such as menemen, börek, gözleme and pide.
