Parmigiano Reggiano is a proven cheese of champions. Part of the diet for Italian athletes and Olympians, part of the official diet for astronauts in the International Space Station, Parmigiano Reggiano is a highly digestible, nutrient packed super-food promoting good health for everyone from kids to the elderly.
This ancient, aged, all natural cheese’s recipe and traditional production methods have not changed for almost 800 years and are rigorously controlled by the Parmigiano Reggiano Consorzio, charged with carefully inspecting each hand-made wheel to ensure it is worthy of displaying the respected-protected name.
Made from raw cow’s milk and only in the designated Northern Italian regions of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna (west of the Reno River) and Mantua (east of the Po River), Parmigiano Reggiano has won a place in carefully planned diets for many reasons. It is a very low fat “simplified digestion” food that is not only ultra-easily assimilated by the body but also stimulates gastric production, aiding in the digestion of other foods as well.
Extremely high in protein, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins, with more free amino acids than any other cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano has become recognized as an incredibly efficient and nutrient-rich source of energy. With a granular texture and an extraordinary complex fruity, sweet, nutty flavor, Parmigiano Reggiano is thankfully as delicious as it is nutritious. So when an Athlete crosses the finish first with a smile or an astronaut gives a thumbs up to the camera for the world to see, it may be in part due to this remarkable taste of Italian tradition.
Application: Make a twist on Spaghetti Carbonara with fusilli pasta, Speck Alto Adige, roasted Brussels sprouts and Parmigiano Reggiano. Enjoy Parmigiano Reggiano grated, thinly sliced, chunked or shaved alone or in any dish that needs a little Italian perfection.
Pairing: A full-bodied Barbera wine or a hoppy Doppelbock highlight the nutty flavors of the cheese.
