Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese that is 100% natural made up of 30% water and 70% nourishing substances.

For an adult following a healthy and balanced diet of 2000 kcal a serving of 25 g Parmigiano Reggiano accounts for 36% of the calcium requirements and 24% of the phosphorous requirements.

A large part of the energy component is made up of proteins (32 g per 100 g of product).

The DOP mark: As a DOP (PDO) 'Protected Denomination of Origin' cheese, our Parmesan has been guaranteed and certified by the Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium in Italy. This is the best guarantee of excellence in a European agri-food product. Production, processing and preparation of our cheese takes place exclusively in the Parmesan cheese DOP area of origin - any other Parmesan (and there are many, many copies) which does not have this mark is just cheese! 

Serving Suggestions

Parmesan is a very versatile hard cheese, excellent as a table cheese with its full and delicate flavour. It is great eaten alone or served with a good aged balsamic vinegar from Modena, truffle honey, pear mustard, fig jam or fruits such as pears, apples, kiwi and nuts. It also gives flavour to all of your recipes and is of course unbeatable when grated on pasta dishes. Don't waste any part of your parmesan - even the rind can be added to soups and tomato sauces!

Enjoy it too as part of an aperitivo! Pair it with dry fresh whites or spumante (Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Prosecco for example), with medium bodied reds (Sangiovese, Barbera d’Alba, Morellino di Scansano, Falerno), and also more structured reds (Nobile di Montepulciano, Super Tuscan, Chianti, Amarone, Aglianico, Etna). It can also be enjoyed with our sweet Malmantico Vin Santo.
