Tilsiter Switzerland léger (the blue)

Body-conscious, smart nutrition is all the rage. Cheese is one of the foods that support this type of diet. Tilsiter has also developed a type of cheese that meets these requirements: Blue Label – léger Tilsiter. The Tilsiter with the blue label is a ¼-fat cheese and has its roots in the modern Past-Tilsiter. With its low fat content, 55% or so less than a full-fat cheese, and its high protein content of around 34g per 100g, it is ideal for anyone following a high-protein, low-fat and low-calorie diet. Savvy consumers who want to avoid calories without sacrificing taste opt for Blue Label Tilsiter. The cheese dairies that produce these Tilsiter cheeses use a microbial rennet, which is why this cheese is permitted to bear the designation ‘vegetarian’.
