Quargel is a sour milk cheese with a red mold residue. It originally comes from Austria but is produced in Czechia and Germany as well. Quargel is sold in 10 cm long rolls about 4.5 cm in diameter. Each roll weighs 125 grams and is divided into smaller slices. Its rind is natural and even with a golden brown residue. The interior is light yellow and springy. The flavor of Quargel ranges from sour and savoury to tangy. Usually Quargel has a fat content of 0,3 percent of fat in dry matter. Today some types of Quargel can have up to 10 percent of fat in dry matter. Quargel is therefore not necessarily a sour milk cheese with a very low fat content.
