More about Emmental Swiss Cheese ... the production of a wheel of approximately 95 kg requires almost 1200 litres of natural raw milk, water, rennet and bacteria cultures. However, what it requires most is a lot of know how, attention and patience. Emmentaler AOC cheese is completely free from additives and genetically modified organisms. It acquires its characteristic flavour from non-silage milk, traditional processing together with the use of strains of propionic acid bacteria.
After being immersed in a salt bath, the cheese is first matured in a warm cellar where it acquires its characteristic holes. The maturing process is then continued in a cooler cellar. Before pressing, the registered trademark of the cheese dairy is indelibly "tattooed” onto the rind to prevent any kind of forgery.
The marking completely fuses with the cheese rind. Each cheese wheel is radially marked with the "Emmentaler AOC” logo and the registration number of the village dairy. This marking that completely covers the top of the wheel makes it easily recognizable, so that even when it is pre-sliced and wrapped, the real Emmentaler cheese can clearly be identified. Only cheese that is manufactured in strict conformity with the production specifications of the trade association.
Why has Emmental have holes in? The characteristic holes in the Emmentaler cheese are formed during the maturing process. The natural fermentation produces carbon dioxide, which accumulates within the body of the cheese and cannot escape. That is where the famous holes are formed in the cheese body.
