Gouda – Sweetmilk Cheese?
Hi, Cheese Fans
Gouda cheese is a sweetmilk cheese. What does that mean?
Well, during the cheese making process some of the whey is removed and substituted with water. This removes lactose and thus in effect some of the acid forming capacity of the whey, because the lactose is converted to acid by the bacteria that you add.
Therefore you end up with “sweeter milk” and therefore sweeter cheese.
Sweet isn’t it!
