Emmentaler Swiss Cheese 1 Pound 

Emmentaler AOP derives its name from the Emme valley (German: Emmental) in the Canton of Bern. The valley features gently rolling hills and runs to the left and right of the Emme river.
Protection of origin:
AOP Appellation d’Origine Protégée (protected designation of origin) since 2006
Raw ingredient:

Distinctive characteristics:
The characteristic holes are formed as the cheese matures. The natural fermentation produces carbon dioxide which gathers in different places within the cheese and is unable to escape. For a hard cheese, the salt content at 0.5 g / 100 g is extremely low. Emmentaler AOP is lactose-free.
