GRANA PADANO




Grana Padano is a Italian cheese made from raw cow's milk. These Protected Designation of Origin cheeses owe their name to their granular texture and the region they come from: the Po Valley in northern Italy. Its appearance is very characteristic, the mold in which it is cured for a minimum of 9 months gives the cheese a convex shape on the sides and completely flat on the top and bottom.


It is an artisanal, gluten-free and lactose-free cheese whose nutritional properties have helped it to consolidate its position as the most consumed cheese appellation of origin in the world. The reason? A total of 15 liters of partially skimmed milk are needed to produce one kilo of Grana Padano PDO, which means that 30 grams of Gran Padano contain the same nutritional value as half a liter of milk.


During their ripening period, Grana Padano cheeses are cleaned and turned every 15 days until it is time to examine the pieces after nine months. All cheeses that pass these tests will bear a seal identifying the Grana Padano Protected Designation of Origin.
