emmental -

Emmental, Emmentaler, Emmenthal, or Emmenthaler is Swiss cheese made with raw cow's milk and has many large holes or "eyes". This cheese is known as "Swiss cheese" in North America although Swiss cheese does not always refer to Emmental.

Emmental cheese mix in Norway known as Jarlsberg. This cheese gets its name from its original region of Emme valley in Canton Bern and has been certified by the AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée).

AOC certification causes only cheese produced in Emmental alone that can be labeled "Swiss Emmentaler". However, the name "Emmental cheese" is not protected so many copies are produced in different countries.
