Paul disagrees with the score for May-Bud Gouda Cheese (7 oz.).
Paul feels that the score should be A (93-100).
The Rotterdam study. Gouda is high in vitamin K2. The benefits of this form of K are just now coming into their own. The vitamin K2 helps prevent calcification in the arteries and the study clearly backs the new science in this area. You would also need to adjust the score for Edam cheese as well, for the same reason.

You’re right – Vitamin K2 has been shown to have very positive effects on heart and arterial health. However, we cannot adjust the score for Gouda for the following reasons:
1. The Manufacturer has not disclosed how much K2 exists in this product, and we cannot estimate or guess what may be in a product without compromising our dedication to accurate information.
2. Gouda is still high in Saturated fats. For a source of K2 which is lower in these fats, we recommend Chicken Breast or Lean Ground Beef.

As always, thanks for contacting us!
