More about Raw-Milk Cheese Since cheese was first discovered many millennia ago it has been made with pure raw milk. In fact, it was only in the last century that cheese began to be made with pasteurized milk. Traditional cheesemaking was a way of preserving fluid milk that in the millennia before refrigeration was prone to spoilage in just a few short days. The natural microflora in raw-milk produces cheese - such as Comte, Le Gruyère, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Roquefort, and many American originals - that are characteristic of local environments, expressive of terroir, evocative of complex flavors, and beneficial to health. Raw-milk cheeses are not only delicious; they’re nutritious. Scientific studies reveal that, when consumed in moderation, cheese is a tremendous way to add healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and probiotics to your diet.
