Fløtemysost TINE (Norwegian Brown Cheese) - Sliced - Brunost
130 grams, about 12 slices.
Norwegian brown cheese has a centuries long tradition, made by leftover whey and sugar, originally from goat's milk. It is one of Norway's most well-known signature foods, and goes very well with whole wheat bread and butter or some jam/jelly.
Most Norwegians have grown up with this highly regarded brown cheese.
In the 1860s Anne Hov, a Norwegian farmer’s wife, invented the Gudbrandsdalen brown cheese, which has become one of the national symbols of Norway. The cheese is made from whey, cow’s and/or goat’s milk, and cream. This mixture is caramelised and boiled to perfection, hence the brown colour. The taste is sweet and fudge-like, with a hint of goat’s milk.
Norway’s national cheese
Most Norwegians eat the brown cheese on their sandwiches, cut into thin slices by using a cheese slicer, (another Norwegian invention). However, the cheese can also be used on waffles, and as an ingredient in e.g. brownies or sauces.
Gudbrandsdalsost: The original dark cheese with a distinct sweet caramel taste and a dark color with a mix of goat milk and cow milk.
Fløtemysost: Perhaps the most popular of the brown cheeses in Norway. It has a lighter color than the traditional gudbrandsdalsost, and is made primarily of heavy cream and whey.
Millom: A sweet, round taste, something in between fløtemysost and gudbrandsdalsost. A bit darker than fløtemysost, while lighter than gudbrandsdalsost.
Fløtemysost light: Less fat and calories than the regular fløtemysost.
Ekte geitost/real goat cheese: Brown cheese made 100% of goat milk, goat whey and goat cream.
Innherredost: Yet another dark cheese with a very sweet taste.
