Fast Relief for Dry Skin - Glysolid Skin Cream


Edelpilzkäse is a blue-vein cheese. It is similar to Roquefort, but milder because it is made with cow's milk. Edelpilzkäse is made by mixing cow's milk with Pennicillium spores. The mold grows within the cheese, giving the cheese the internal blue veining and its tangy flavor. It is available in 45%, 50%, and 60% fat levels.
