Queijo Prato is a Brazilian soft cheese, similar to the Danish cheese Danbo. It is one of the most popular cheeses in Brazil, and was introduced by Danish immigrants in the Minas Gerais state. Since the method to produce Prato cheese was the same as Danbo cheese, the differences are attributed to milk characteristics. It is characterized by low salt and lactose content, yellow color and soft taste.
