Technical aspects

Maasdam cheese contains more moisture than Emmental and is thus more tender. It has a soft, creamy texture and is especially known for its excellent melting properties. It is widely chosen by the manufacturers for its cost-effectiveness and easy use. The cheese is elastic, firm, and homogeneous with oval, regularly spaced eyes of various sizes, and yellow rind. The holes appear thanks to the development of propionic bacteria responsible for the characteristic flavor. Maasdam is sometimes waxed. It has a delicate nutty, sweet, and slightly spice taste.

Maasdam cheese supplied by Foodcom S.A. has 45% fat content in dry matter (45% FDM).

Alternative names: maasdam type cheese, maasdam 45%, maasdam 45 fdm.
