Primost (or simply prim) is a Norwegian cheese made from cow's milk which has a soft spreadable texture providing a semi-sweet taste. The sweetness is derived from caramelizing the milk sugars of the whey as it is made. It is also known as mysost.[1]

This cheese is very similar to Gjetost or Brunost cheese, except that Gjetost is made from a combination of goat and cow's milk or strictly goat's milk (Ekte Geitost). The caramelized cheeses are often served with dark bread or Norwegian flatbread, as a dessert cheese, or as a cheese melted into a variety of food dishes.[2]
