FAQs about GruyÃ¨re
Gruyère is a type of Swiss cheese, but this isn't the cheese that most people think of when they simply refer to "Swiss cheese." The term Swiss cheese usually refers to an American Swiss. Both kinds of cheese are pale yellow and have holes. However, the holes in Swiss cheese are much larger than those in Gruyère. Both types of cheese are smooth, good for melting, and resistant to crumbling.
Even the flavor of Gruyère and Swiss is similar. However, Gruyère has a much stronger flavor than an American Swiss. Gruyère is slightly higher in calories and protein content. Gruyère is much higher in sodium, having nearly five times the amount of sodium that's in Swiss.
Gruyère's AOP makes it a pricier cheese than other varieties. The AOP specifies where and how the cheese can be made to qualify as authentic Gruyère. This adds complexity to the process of making this cheese.
If you're looking for a substitute for Gruyère, several other kinds of cheese have a similar flavor profile. American Swiss is one obvious option, as mentioned above. This is a simple choice if you're making an Americanized Croque monsieur. Emmental is the best substitute if you're making fondue, as this AOP is a traditional pick for this purpose. Emmental is made with the same bacteria as Gruyère, giving it very similar flavor and properties.
If you prefer a stronger flavor profile, an Irish Dubliner is another satisfying substitute. This cheese melts easily and has a nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness. For a milder alternative to Gruyère, try Jarlsberg cheese. This Norwegian variety has a sweet, nutty flavor that's not as strong as Gruyère.
