Parmigiano-Reggiano is one of the oldest cheeses known and is still produced today as it was eight centuries ago: the same ingredients, the same production technique and the same loving care. It can be matured for long time.
It is a completely natural cheese, the only one which can be eaten by little children and by those who are intolerant to lactose.
Its production is controlled by the Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese Cooperative, which does not allow the use of any additives.
Parmigiano-Reggiano is extremely high in nutritional value as a kilo of cheese is obtained from sixteen liters of top quality milk from the area of production. It is exceptionally rich in calcium and phosphorous and is very easy to digest, so it is a perfect food for sportsmen.
