As our gouda cheese is aged it becomes harder and takes on a stronger flavor with a bit of a nutty taste. Try it with salads or fruit. If you wish to cook with it, it melts well and adds a distinctive taste to your favorite casserole. Gouda cheese is known to be high in Vitamin K2. Made with cultured whole milk, salt, and enzymes. No added fillers or extenders. All-natural ingredients. Milk from cows fed a grass-based diet.
