The first mention of flutes (in the food context) that was found in Switzerland appears in a Neuchâtel cookbook entitled La pâtisserie à la maison (1891). These flutes were made of leavened dough, the same one that was used for milk rolls. According to the description, the original flutes differ a bit from these Organic Gruyere cheese twists. The Gruyere straws are slightly twisted giving them an elegant shape and are made from puff pastry dough rather than leavened dough. They are still the descendants of the flute made of leavened dough.

The research conducted by the Glossary of patois of the French-speaking Switzerland in the first decade of the 20th century found a single mention of flute, from the canton of Vaud (Les Ormonts), the definition was not very explicit ("elongated roll").

Today the Cornu Family from Champagne in Switzerland is the market leader in the production of High Quality baked cheese sticks. Their latest brand La Fabrique blends quality and authenticity with perfect harmony. Some recipes go back to 1934, and were created by masterbaker André Cornu.
