This firm, rindless, unripened cheese is made from pasteurized milk. The yellow straw-coloured interior has a buttery aroma and taste with slightly tangy hints of hazelnut. Its texture is soft and slightly elastic. The cheese is available in white, yellow and marbled and in several formats, such as rounds, blocks, individual servings and even grated!
M.F.: 30%, Moisture: 42%
The cheese maker also makes twists, Cheddar curds as well as curds just for poutine. Poutine curds are rounder and smaller than traditional curds, and they melt slowly when in contact with heat. Tasty, smooth and always fresh, you’ll go wild about its texture and mild taste. Cheddar curds are available in plain, BBQ, garlic and dill flavours.
