Fascinating facts about cheese!

Presented by the GOLDSTEIG cheese master

Myth or fact?

Do certain types of cheese really close the stomach?

A widely spread myth is that cheese closes the stomach. Is this true? Even in Ancient Rome, the citizens suspected that certain types of cheese can do much more than just taste good. For the Roman author Pliny the Elder, a lovely piece of cheese was essential after a good meal. And he was right!

It has in fact been scientifically provenin the meantime that cheese closes the stomach. The fatty acids and proteins in cheese produce this effect. They have the quality of delaying the emptying of the stomach and therefore leaving you feeling full for longer.

Protein-rich types of cheesein particular, such as Parmesan, Appenzeller or our Goldsteig Emmental are therefore the perfect final course.

Real protein bombs

These types of cheeses have a particularly high protein and calcium content

When you think about protein and calcium, healthy muscles and strong bones also spring to mind at the same time.

Proteins are incredibly important for building up muscles and should not be missing from a balanced diet. mozzarella, is one of the most protein-rich foods with 18 grams of protein per 100 grams of cheese. By comparison: 100 grams of eggs, which are well-known as a source of protein, have “just” 13 grams of protein.

Besides its protein content, mozzarella, scores with its high calcium content too though. With 731 mg per 100 grams of cheese, mozzarella, is also good for bones and teeth! A real power pack!

Cool cheese

Perfect cheese storage

If you want to enjoy your favourite cheese for as long as possible, good storage is crucial.

Cheese is always chilled in the cheese counter, does it therefore have to be chilled at home too? As there are many different types of cheeses, the ideal kind of storage is also always different.

With Emmental the correct refrigeration is crucial. The perfect storage temperature for Emmental is between 2 and 6 degree Celsius. At this temperature, the cheese does not mature too quickly and doesn’t lose any flavour at the same time.

mozzarella, on the other hand is in a brine. Here it is also sensible to store it in this as otherwise it dries out quickly. mozzarella, can be stored fully covered by the brine in the fridge for 24 hours, once opened.
