Gouda is the most well-known cheese of all Dutch cheeses. It was named after the Dutch town of Gouda, where it has been sold at the market for centuries. In the 19th century, the production of this type of cheese started to spread across the rest of the Netherlands, resulting in the fact that Gouda cheese became the most commonly made cheese. Traditional Gouda, full of flavour and aroma, is available in different stages of maturity, including mild, mature and even extra mature. Gouda contains a minimum of 48% fat in dry matter.
To protect the original Gouda cheese, the European Union has granted a PGI-recognition to the genuine Dutch Gouda cheese with the term Gouda Holland.PGI stands for ‘Protected Geographical Indication’. Only products that owe their reputation to their geographical origin and are produced there can be considered for such protection. All the naturallyripened Gouda cheeses from DOC have this PGI-recognition. This can be recognized by the special Gouda Holland quality seal.
