Swiss cheese, American styleEdit

Swiss cheese the generic name for several varieties of cheese originally made in Switzerland. In the United States "swiss cheese" is an imitation of the Swiss Emmental or Emmentaler. Swiss cheese is a mild cheese made from cow's milk and has a firmer texture than baby Swiss. The flavor is mild, sweet and nut-like.

Cheesemakers can control the size of the holes by changing the acidity, temperature, and curing time. [2]
