This firm rindless cheese is made from organic thermized milk and contains less than 0.5% lactose. Its surface is shiny and it has openings (eyes) scattered around its interior. Two months of ripening give it a melting mouthfeel and a soft intensity with a pronounced nutty flavour and a slight touch of sweetness. It can be used in countless ways in the kitchen. Because it melts remarkably, it is perfect for breakfast dishes, sandwiches and especially fondues. It’s also delicious by itself and in appetizers.
Biobio cheeses are high-quality organic cheeses that contain no chemical dyes, artificial flavours or synthetic additives. They are also made using microbial enzymes derived from a vegetable source, not with rennet. The certified-organic milk used to make the cheeses comes from cow herds raised on Quebec family farms. The pastures, forage and grain used to feed them contain no synthetic products such as pesticides or fertilizers and no GMOs.
The Biobio Swiss is available in several cheese shops, in specialty grocery stores and in supermarkets.
