Why is there salt in cheese?

Cheese is a food traditionally salted during its production. Even artisan cheeses add salt. This is for:

  • Food Safety properties: salt helps to prevent the development of harmful bacteria
  • Flavour and texture: Salt helps to control the growth of bacteria used to develop the flavour and texture of the cheese.
  • Taste: The salt acts as a flavour enhancer.

The Laughing Cow is creamy and delicious because of its secret recipe that includes a variety of cheeses (Cheddar, Gouda, Edam, Emmental, Comté ...), melted and blended. Salt from these cheeses is therefore also present in the final ingredients analysis. We only add salt to The Laughing Cow recipe very occasionally to ensure the flavour is the same in cases the blend of cheeses used requires it.
