Alpine cheese – mild – holes

The “broken holes” are formed when the curd is not enough pressed after form filling and air is “locked in”.

 

A mixed hole spreading occurs when in addition to the break holes round holes (fermentation holes) grow. Slit holes may occur as a result of pressing the curd.
