Fjällbrynt is one of Sweden’s oldest food brands. Nobody knows when soft whey cheese was originally invented, but in 1939 a few dairy producers in Jämtland joined forces under the brand name Fjällbrynt, with the idea to supply Sweden with the best sandwich spread possible. Today, Fjällbrynt is owned by Foodmark AB, which also carries brands such as Rydbergs and Lohmanders. Soft whey cheese is produced from whey, the cloudy watery bi-product one gets when making cheese. The whey is boiled and thickened in cast iron pots, which gives it a natural addition of iron. Production follows the same process today, and soft whey cheese is still considered a genuine and healthy product.
