The production of Emmental is a very complex process due to its fermentation process. Propionic acid fermentation in the cheese lead to the characteristic holes in Emmental. At the same time, propionic acids make the cheese expand during the fermentation process. If the cheese is not ripened in the correct way very large and unequaled eyes/ wholes appear in the cheese which results in a cheese that cannot be sliced.
