Our History

Homem segurando um Queijo

We have been building our tradition in the global trade of dairy products since we were founded in the Netherlands in 1970. The Dutch cheesemaking tradition dates back even further. As the second largest exporter of cheese in the world, the gastronomic culture of the Netherlands brings to this day the brands of an economy built around medieval cheese markets, whose reputation only grew and consolidated over time.

Therefore, Kasten is a novelty that arrives in Brazil with centuries of history, in-depth knowledge passed on from generation to generation, and world-renowned quality under its belt. Including, mainly, a passion for cheese.

History of Cheese

One Single Ingredient - Milk - Helps create thousands of types of cheese that greatly vary from one another. This is not by mere chance.

There are so many factors involved in manufacturing cheeses that there are around 2,000 varieties in total.
Factors such as the animal that provides the milk (cow, sheep, goat or buffalo), their region of origin and the season of the year (which determines pasture type, temperature, humidity, etc.), the technique used in the processing of curdled milk, the addition of salt and aromatic ingredients, if any, and the ripening time are just some of the factors that give rise to the huge variety of cheeses.

CHEESE AND NUTRITION

High in milk nutrients, cheese provides various benefits to human health. Cheese is high in protein and rich in fats, vitamins, and minerals, among which are calcium and phosphorus that are involved in the formation of bones and teeth and help prevent diseases such as osteoporosis.

Studies indicate that yellow cheeses (such as Queijo Prato) retain only a third of the original lactose, and this is even lower in harder cheeses (such as Parmesan).
Cheese also has a probiotic effect on the intestinal flora and is beneficial to the functioning of the organism.

Tips

Always follow the packaging guidelines regarding storage temperature and consumption period.

Avoid freezing cheeses, as the process may alter the original texture, flavor, and aroma.

Do not put different cheeses in one container.

You can leave semi-hard or hard cheeses, such as Parmesan, outside the refrigerator in regions with colder climates.

As for semi-soft cheeses such as Queijo Prato or Mozzarella, keep them in closed containers, preferably in the refrigerator's vegetable drawer, which is the least humid and coldest place, so that they continue to develop aroma and flavor.
