The benefits of this round and pale yellow cheese are many. Edam is an excellent source of protein and phosphorus. A good amount of protein is needed for building your baby’s cells, whereas phosphorus is an essential mineral needed for the development of strong bones in you and your developing baby. It is also important for maintaining muscle contractions, blood clotting, kidney function, and aids in tissue and cell repair. Even the small amounts of vitamin B6 and B12 present in Edam help prevent spina bifida and other neural tube defects in your baby. However, it is important to add here that since Edam is a cheese, it has high sodium and saturated fat content. That is why, pregnant women must eat it in moderation. Overall, Edam is a healthy hard cheese.
