The Gouda Jong is only 4 weeks old when it leaves our warehouse. This cheese has a nice soft and creamy taste. Goes well on a sandwich or diced on the cocktail board. Nonetheless, flavour wise, it is the ideal choice for a melted cheese-tomato sandwich. Do you like a little more savoury? Then choose our Young Matured or Matured variant.
Pasteurized Kosher cow’s milk, salt, leavening (kosher for passover), rennet (kosher for passover), preservative: sodium nitrate.

The history of Gouda cheese
Gouda cheese is originally a hard Dutch cheese. It is one of the best known, and most eaten, types of cheese. A Gouda cheese has the shape of a wheel, weighs between 1 and 16 kg and has a fat content of at least 48% (usually around 51%). This fat content is the amount of fat based on the total dry matter (excluding water / moisture). The actual fat content is 32% fat by weight (including water / moisture). Cheese mainly contains calcium, but also vitamins A, B and D. Compared to other types of cheese, Gouda cheese contains little vitamin B12, but more vitamin K2. The type of cheese was named Gouda due to the fact that it has been traded in Gouda for centuries. The cheese market in Gouda is nowadays only held as a tourist attraction once a week in the summer months. Gouda cheeses are massively produced in cheese factories. Gouda cheese is also made abroad under this name because the generic name and shape are not protected. However, the designation “Gouda Holland” has been a protected geographical indication since October 2010, by a decision of the European Commission. Cheese with this indication in the cheese brand may only originate from the Netherlands and must be made from Dutch cow’s milk. Gouda farmer’s cheese is also, as was once customary, made on farms in the region, such as in the vicinity of Stolwijk and Haastrecht in the Krimpenerwaard. This cheese is also sold under the name Stolwijker. (source: Wikipedia)
