Edam cheese

Edam (Dutch Edammer) is a Dutch cheese traditionally sold in spheres  with a pale yellow interior and a coat of red paraffin wax. It is named  after the town of Edam in the province of North Holland, where the  cheese is coated for export sale and for the tourist high season. Edam  which has aged for at least 17 weeks is coated with black wax, rather  than the usual red or yellow. Edam ages and travels well, and does not  spoil easily; these qualities (among others) made it the world’s most  popular cheese between the 14th and 18th centuries, both at sea and in  remote colonies. It is popular in North America, the Nordic countries,  and many other countries around the world.
Edam cheese is an aged, semi-firm cheese with a yellow color and slightly tangy and salty flavor. The cheese is often dipped in wax as a preservative. Rich in both proteins and fats, edam cheese is also high in calories.
This cheese has a beautiful silky texture and convey the characteristic round shiny eyes. Our Edam provides a nutty sweet flavour to the palate. It has a delicate and creamy mouth-feel; with a firm, clean cutting texture.
