Brie Fromager d’Affinois From France

Fromager d’Affinois is a French double-cream soft cheese made from cow’s milk. It is produced by Fromageris Guilloteau in the regional natural park of Pilat, in the French Rhone-Alps. It is similar to brie in production, appearance and flavour. Unlike in Brie production however, before cheese making the cow’s milk undergoes a process called ultrafiltration which removes water from the pasteurized milk, concentrating all other components. One effect of this process is that it allows the acceleration of the cheese making process. Where classic Brie takes eight weeks to make, Fromager d’Affinois can be made in two weeks! Ultrafiltration also results in a milk that retains more nutrients and proteins, and the cheese has a relatively high fat content of 60%.
