Olive Points: 235pts

Price £23.50

Description

Weight: 1kg

Cow's milk

Our vegetarian Parmesan is finely grated freshly for each order and dispatched in a handy bio-degradable container.

This Gran Kinara Parmesan style cheese is the world´s first aged cheese produced with vegetable rennet made from a type of thistle (Cynara cardunculus), it is also lactose free and Halal.  The maturing of the cheese for 12 months combined with the use of vegetable rennet, ensure that the lactose turns into lactic acid (that does not cause problems to lactose intolerant individuals) way faster than in the cheeses made with animal rennet.

 The crumbly, buttery texture has delicate floral aromas and fragrances and a bit of tang from the vegetable rennet. 

Ingredients

Partially skimmed cow´s milk, salt, vegetable rennet (Cynara cardunculus)

Our Producer - Le Fattorie Fiandino

Mario Fiandino’s family have been mountain shepherds since the 1700s. In the mountains they used to coagulate milk with the thistle flower, as it was less costly than animal rennet. Two years ago they revived this tradition in cheesemaking. They currently have 250 Bruna Alpina cows which graze freely and produce limited quantities of superior quality milk.
