14 The Cheese Guide A S P E C I A L A D V E R T I S I N G S E C T I O N FEATURED PRODUCTS Le Gruyère AOP does not follow trends, but sometimes the trends follow Gruyère AOP. Following the trend toward all-natural foods without additives, consumers now want to know where these foods come from. Fortunately, this has always been an essential part of quality control for Gruyère AOP, and is built into the producers' specification. During production, each wheel is marked with its sequential num- ber of all wheels produced in that dairy and the code of the cheese dairy that produced it along with the day and month of production. In the example pictured, the cheese is the 11,168th wheel pro- duced by dairy number 4167, which was produced on March 13. These black markings are made with casein, the milk pro- tein. The name "Le Gruyère AOP" and the code of the production fa- cility is also on the mold, so that from this point on, this information will also appear on the heel of each wheel. This is an effective way of preventing fakes and guar- anteeing authenticity. Tracing the cheese's origin can even be taken a step further. Using the dairy's unique code, www.gruyere.com/ en/zone-production will reveal more in- formation about who produced the cheese. Only the real Le Gruyère AOP Switzerland is hand- made, in 170 small batches, from a recipe that has been passed down for centuries. Its inimitable, savory flavor starts with the raw milk of cows that are sustained in local fields, and the maturation is com- pleted in local cellars and caves under strict supervision. The know-how of the produc- ers, combined with the terroir of the region, makes Le Gruyère AOP Switzerland truly incompara- ble. The AOP denomination, as well as the asso- ciation of milk p r o d u c e r s , cheese makers and refiners, are tasked with pro- tecting this fla- vor – and ensuring that it maintains con- sistency with its origins, now and forever. Le Gruyère AOP Switzerland is 100 percent natural and 100 per- cent additive free, with 100 per- cent great taste. And, of course, it's also naturally free of lactose and gluten, as it has been since it was first produced in 1115 AD. Le Gruyere AOP Switzerland www.gruyere.com Le Gruyère AOP Switzerland: Traceable to its Origin Klondike Cheese Company's new Buholzer Brothers™ brand is crafted by six Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers and dedicated staff and includes four flavorful va- rieties of Muenster, Brick, Havarti and Dill Havarti.

Muenster is an orange rind cheese that is semi-firm with a creamy texture that gets even creamier with age. It's perfect for grilled cheese, scrambled eggs or pizza.
