ABOUT DANISH STYLE FONTINA CHEESE

The original Fontina cheese from Italy is fairly pungent and has an intense flavor, however, Fontina cheeses that are produced in other countries can be much milder. The Danish version is often found in U.S. grocery stores and can be distinguished from Italian Fontina by the red wax rind – Italian Fontina has a natural rind due to aging, which is usually tan to orange-brown.

Our Danish Style Fontina is aged less, so it becomes semi-soft and much milder than its Italian counterpart.
