Difference Between Gorgonzola and Bleu Cheese

Gorgonzola vs Bleu Cheese

Bleu cheese is only a type of cheese that is made by introducing bacteria into it so that a blue mold forms in the veins. Gorgonzola is just an Italian blue cheese.

Gorgonzola cheese gets the name from the name of the town that it was produced in since 879 AD. The Gorgonzola cheese got the greenish-blue structure during the eleventh century. This cheese is now mainly produced in Lombardy and Piedmont (Northern Italian regions).

Gorgonzola is produced from whole cow’s milk. Starter bacteria along with spores of penicillium roqueforti and penicillium glaucum are added to it. The whey that is produced is removed and the remaining is aged at a low temperature. During aging, metal rods are inserted and removed which forms air channels. These air channels make the spores grow into hyphae and give the cheese the green vein characteristic. Generally, Gorgonzola cheese is aged for about four months. The Bleu cheese is also produced in the same manner.
