Swiss Emmental cheese has a fruity, slightly nutty, savory and particularly a mild bitter taste and is best known for walnut sized holes. It is also the most famous Swiss cheese, made according to a process that originates from the Emme River valley, situated in the canton of Bern. Complete maturity of the cheese takes about six months.
The cheese is not produced in Switzerland only anymore. The largest producer of Emmental cheese today is France. As well as being served as table cheese, Emmental is often used in gratins and is very popular as fondue cheese due to its characteristics.
Emmental can also be a good source of Calcium, Protein and Essential Fatty Acids. Because it’s made with skim or semi-skimmed Milk, it has less fat, salt and cholesterol than other full fat cheeses, which makes it one of favorite cheese for many different types of diets.
The cheese is freshly cut with a knife and vacuum packed, so we can always assure the quality. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our customer service.
