Gouda cheese is one of the best known and most popular cheeses. The cheese is named after the Dutch city of Gouda, where the cheese has been traded for centuries. Gouda cheese is also produced abroad, since the name and shape of the cheese are not patented. In the Netherlands, this cheese is produced by a few companies. The cheese is made from pasteurised milk and contains no additional colourants or preservations.
The young cheese is soft and springy, with a buttery smell. The taste is somewhat toffee-like, with a hint of nuts, but very mild. The cheese is suitable for many purposes: on sandwiches, in salads, as stuffing for snacks, and as garnish for pizza or bread rolls.
We can provide you with different types of cheese that are produced as foil-ripened and rindless. These cheeses are perfect for customers who need cheeses for further processing. Next to the traditional Gouda (48%) we provide also Gouda (30%) as a foil-ripened cheese.
