So today is the first time I have ever eaten Gouda cheese. It had an orange-red rind on it with a grid imprint on it. I didn't bother looking it up on the internet and thought it was safe to eat and ate some of it with the rind on it. Now I read an article that states, that the rind on Gouda cheese is inedible. Have any of you eaten gouda cheese with the rind and if you did, what were the after affects? I don't know if this is in my mind or if its really happening but i feel some minor stomach discomfort right now.
As a dutch person I have to answer this :-) De korst van de kaas is bij een Goudse Kaas niet bedoeld om te eten. De korst is echter niet schadelijk wanneer hij onbedoeld toch gegeten wordt. Voor gebruik snijdt u steeds net zo weinig weg van de korst als nodig is om het stuk wat u gaat eten af te snijden.
the crust on goudse cheese is not meant for eating, beut when eating accidentally it is not harmful for your health.
