Maasdam cheese - General information

Maasdam cheese

Origin

Cheese group

  • The cheese was created to compete with Swiss Emmental by being less expensive and quicker to produce. In the process of making a cheese with the same general components as Swiss cheeses, the Dutch ended up with a cheese that is nutty and sweet, but softer than Emmental due to a higher moisture content.

Milk type

Strength and texture

Suppliers

My favourite way to buy this cheese is from Aldi as they do ready sliced packs of 16 slices for less than £2.
