Van Kaas Dutch Edam is most similar to young Dutch Gouda. Made in the Netherlands from part-skimmed milk, following traditional Dutch recipes, Edam is firm but moist, with a smooth, supple, pliable texture that's ideal for melting and makes for easy snacking. Edam has a mellow, savory flavor that is approachable and mild without being boring. Edam can be gummy and bland but Van Kaas Edam is always moist and satisfying. Easily sliced for a quick snack or sandwich filler, or melted atop polenta, casseroles or roasted vegetables. Van Kaas Edam is made with animal (not vegetarian) rennet and is gluten-free.
