Fascinating facts about Almdammer!

Presented by our GOLDSTEIG cheese master

The Bavarian brother

Maasdammer and Almdammer are closely related

Even the names of these two types of cheeses sound similar. While the Semi-hard cheese Maasdammer comes from South Holland, the Almdammer, originates from GOLDSTEIG in Bavaria.

As for the Maasdammer, the large maturing holes and golden yellow or bright yellow colour are typical of the Almdammer . Its flavour is aromatic and mild with a subtle hint of nut.

Green meadows, a blue and white sky, beautiful mountain pastures! All of that is Bavaria, and that is why the Bavarian version of “Maasdammer” was given this traditional name.

Worth waiting for

Why Maasdammer is naturally lactose-free

As with most types of cheeses, Maasdammer or Almdammer, is made from cow’s milk.

Many people suffer from a so-called lactose intolerance. This means that they do not tolerate the lactose contained in milk. Once it is fully developed, Maasdammer has a less than 0.1% lactose content.

This is because the lactose is naturally degraded during the six-week maturing phase . Cheese lovers who suffer from a lactose intolerance can therefore enjoy Maasdammer without any problems.

A real cheese youngster

Maasdammer was only developed at the end of the 1980s

While types of cheeses like mozzarella, or Emmental can look back on centuries of tradition, the Maasdammer is a comparatively young type of cheese.

The Maasdammer was only established on the cheese market at the end of the 1980s. It comes from the municipality of Maasdam in South Holland, which it also has to thank for its name.

The Maasdammer combines the large holes that are so typical of Emmental and the mild flavour of Gouda. Today, it is extremely populargoes really well with this.
