Gruyere is a semi-hard cheese, yellow in color, made from unpasteurized cow’s milk. It originates from the very pretty region of Gruyere in Switzerland. It's flavor gets more intense as it ages, although not as strong as some cheeses. It's ideal for cooking as it melts well, but can also be eaten on its own.
Gruyere cheese provides a fantastic source of both protein and calcium, but it is also very high in fat, approx. 32g per 100g, so you should consider avoiding if you are on a low fat diet.
Gruyere also provides a source of vitamins A, B1-B3, B5, B6, B12, D, E, K, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and other minerals.
It’s great for healthy bones and teeth. Other Gruyere cheese benefits may include added protection against colon cancer, given the presence of vitamin D3.
Cheese in general contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Studies of CLA have shown that it helps with weight loss. Whilst we don’t generally recommend supplements as we believe all nutrients and vitamins should come from eating healthily, this is one supplement you may want to consider if you are giving up cheese as part of your weight loss program.
