Our Baby Swiss cheese is made from full fat Raw Jersey Cow Milk instead of the traditional skim milk swiss. Our cheese will have more nutritional value because of this major difference in the milk. You may also notice some difference in taste/texture because of it.
Note: Our Swiss cheese has very few holes unlike traditionally Swiss cheese. Read more here about what some people claim is the difference.
This is Truly Raw Cheese. To respect and preserve the healing power of raw milk's enzymes, probiotics, fats and proteins, we only warm the milk to 102 degrees F. (cow body temperature) during cheese making. Many "raw" cheeses are heated to just below legal pasteurization temperature of 161 degrees F. Heating cheese that much kills off many of the good bacteria that helps your body digest dairy.
Another benefit of our grass-fed raw milk cheese is the high amounts of naturally occurring Omega-3s and CLAs. Grass-fed Cow milk/cheese has about 3 times more of these healthy fats compared to the regular conventional milk/cheese you find the grocery stores.
Omega-3s promote good heart health and overall enhanced brain function.
CLAs are one of the best nutritional methods of defending against cancer and atherosclerosis.
