It's made only with the essential and genuine ingredients: typical milk of the typical land, fire and rennet, with good old methods, with the art and wisdom of the Master cheese maker. It takes 14 liters of milk for one kilo of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
The Reggiana Breed
The milk of Red Cows of Reggiana’s breed has some qualitative characteristics that differ from the traditional Parmigiano-Reggiano. The Red Cow produces a third less of milk than the Holstein breed, but it has a higher performance in the chesse-making process. In particular in the Red Cows milk there is a variation of the casein, the essential protein in the process of transforming the milk in cheese, that guarantees a better aptitude for the cheese to a long ageing, with a consequent better digestibility and lactose-free.
