According to the Dutch Cheese Decree, cheese is the product which is obtained by curdling milk and/or buttermilk and removing whey. The product may or may not be ripened and/or matured. The milk can come from cows, goats or sheep, but also from a number of other animals. For instance, reindeer cheese in Lapland or mozzarella (buffalo and/or cows milk) in Italy. In Northern Europe most cheese is made of cows’ milk. Cheese made with goats’ or sheep’s milk is called goats’ milk cheese and sheep’s milk cheese specifically.
