Technically defined as a Reduced Fat Swiss, Jarlsberg Light was introduced in the late 1980s. It carries most of the mellow nuttiness and creaminess plus the nutritional benefits characteristic of classic Jarlsberg. Light is also completely natural, crafted and aged like any other real cheese. This semi-soft cheese melts readily, without lumps or stringiness. It can be substituted in just about any everyday or party recipe calling for Jarlsberg or Swiss and is, of course, terrific for munching, flavor is best at cool room temperature.

A staple on the Swedish farmers breakfast table, Farmer is a semi-soft, mild Swiss cheese called hushllsost which means household or farm cheese. Farmers slices and melts well for sandwiches, gourmet pizzas, and casseroles making it a nice all-occasion cheese.
