Origin

French Emmental is a modern cheese with ancient roots and often mistaken for Gruyère. The production is characterised by the formation of holes, the “eyes”, by fermentation and a high calcium content.

The mountain dwellers in the Vosges, Franche-Comté and Savoy produced this great cheese since the Middle Ages with milk from the summer pastures in copper tanks of 1000 liters. The word “Emmental” comes from “Emme” a Swiss river, and “Tal” which means valley in German.
