According to this interesting article on the Forbes, people in the US who enjoy eating Parmesan may rarely be actually consuming the popular Italian cheese. Larry Olmsted, a journalist and regular contributor on Forbes, states that when you buy it in America, “you could be getting anything” except the true version from Parma. Now that’s a cause for concern!

On a similar note, Ile de France cheeses such as Brie and Camembert are made authentically and naturally with freshly collected milk in France; though there are some substitute American versions that boast being gourmet and cheaper yet contain a lack of quality as well as less richness than the French Brie.
