Real Edam cheese (aka red Edam) comes from Edam in North Holland, The Netherlands. The cheese ball was traditional packaged in red paraffin, which gave it its typical look. Edam cheese is also often sold in yellow colour. Just like Gouda cheese Edam has also received a protected name: ‘Edam Holland’. This ensures that you know you are dealing with the true, genuine, delicious 40+ cheese from Edam. Do you feel like tasting a cheese ball?
