    Is this cheese healthy?

    Shop Now
    It's cool that I live in belgium and they sell the best cheeses here . Anyway, I bought some cheese from raw milk fermented for about 7-8 months. Healthy?

    I wouldn't worry about it, as long as it's from raw milk. And, being it's from Belgium, I'd be prejudicial in saying I trust it more than a lot of cheese sold here in the states.

    fermented raw milk sounds great! No other mysterious ingredients correct?

    Me, too. I'd try digging through the cheese pile at whole foods without any luck. The only place I found raw cheese was Trader Joe's

    Probably great, and probably cheaper than we get any cheese. This pisses my husband off to no end. He moved here from Belgium to marry me (hehe) and cannot believe the price of common, everyday Gouda! LOL

    We did find organic chesse made from raw milk, no "extra" ingredients. $10 for a small brick. It almost made him cry.

    Do watch Belgian and Dutch cheeses for hormones. I don't know the laws there, but hubby insists our meat here in Canada is better taste, better texture, and WAY less watery... So they're doing something to the cows over there. He said once when we were still dating and he was cooking dinner over there, that he could barely fry a burger in a pan because it waters out and boils, whereas here you can actually fry beef. This indicates heavy hormone use. May want to look into it.

    I'm guessing this was directed to me. I love Oregon, actually. I've only been to San Jose, a few times. San Jose is my surname, believe it or not

    oh LOL. That's cool too

    I couldn't live in Oregon because of the rain. Otherwise I hear it's beautiful, with lots of lush greenness and open space
