Frisian cloves cheese is made from skimmed milk with the addition of cumin and cloves. The cheese is always ripened for some time before it is ready to eat. The longer aging makes the cheese harder, dryer and slightly sour. This cheese has a strong, distinctive flavour.
Pasteurised cow’s milk, salt, starter, cumin, cloves, rennet, preservative (E251), colour (E160b).
Fat in dry matter : min. 48%
Fat absolut : ca. 30%
In the Netherlands, labelling usually indicates the fat content in the dry matter: this remains the same as the cheese ages, while the absolute fat content increases because riper cheese contains less moisture.
