Fromagerie Guilloteau™

Fromager d'Affinois®

Fromager d'Affinois® (“fro-mah-ZHAY dah-fee-NWAH”) hails from France’s southern Rhône-Alpes region and is similar to brie in appearance and flavor. Unlike brie, however, this double-cream soft cheese is made using a special production process called “ultrafiltration.” Ultrafiltration breaks down the fat molecules and removes water from the pasteurized cow’s milk. This concentrates all of the other components allowing for a rapid acceleration of the cheesemaking process, a more luscious texture and a higher protein and calcium content.

Fromager d'Affinois® is rich and creamy with a relatively high fat content of 60% that positions it about halfway between traditional brie (about 45%) and triple-creams like Saint André® (about 75%). Its bloomy white rind surrounds a seductively soft interior and its mild and buttery
flavor features a hint of sweetness that is nicely accentuated by fresh fruit.
