edam -

Edam (Dutch Edammer) is a Dutch-style cheese traditionally round and bright yellow and wrapped in paraffin and red nights. This cheese is so named because it was first made in Edam, North Holland Edam, at least 17 weeks old, wrapped in a black night instead of red or yellow.

Edam cheese has a very soft taste, slightly salty or tastes like nuts, this cheese also does not smell when compared to other cheeses. This cheese also has a much lower fat content than other traditional cheeses as much as 28 percent with a protein content of 25 percent. Modern Edam cheese is much softer than other cheeses, such as Cheddar Cheese, because of its lower fat content.
