This firm, rindless cheese is lactose-free and made with raw organic milk. It is crafted using plant-based microbial enzymes, making it an animal rennet-free cheese. Large round eyes (holes) dot its shiny, pale yellow interior. This Swiss cheese has a creamy texture and a slightly sweet, distinctly nutty yet mild flavour.
For its organic cheeses, the cheese maker uses organic milk from farms near its home in Lac-Mégantic. Its cheeses are certified by Québec Vrai, meaning they are made without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, chemical additives or antibiotics. The certification guarantees that both animal welfare and environmental protection standards have been met. The Fromagerie La Chaudière offers healthy, high-quality products, and it uses manufacturing methods that are friendly to the environment and promote sustainable development.
Bingo! Organic Swiss is available from the cheese maker, and at several natural food stores and specialty grocery stores.
