Parmigiano Reggiano

IParmigiano Reggiano is a classic and prestigious Italian cheese, famous and valued worldwide for its genuine features and tracing its roots to antiquity. The most well-known and detailed early mention of this cheese can be found in the Decameron by Bocacco, from the year 1350.

The name “Parmigiano Reggiano” is protected by a special law (ie. trademarked) and is associated with the cheeses produced in the area, specifically the provinces of Modena, Parma and Redgo Emilia, Bologna and Mantyja

The brand “Grana Parmigiano Reggiano” has been designated “the name protected by origin” since 1938.



This cheese has been produced utilizing the same trade secrets for more than seven centuries.
The tradition, maturity and complete absense of preservatives are guaranteed by the marking of the crust, making Parmigiano Reggiano a unique, high-quality cheese with high food value. These characteristics have enabled this product to become the symbol of “Italian gastronomical workmanship”

Some information about the procedure of production
The production of 1 kg of Parmigiano Reggiano takes 16 liters of the highest quality milk. The cheese gains its distinctive features through the process of natural ripening for a period of 12 –24 months, which gives it its easy digestive properties.

For instance, the assimilation of 100 grams of Parmigiano Reggiano takes around 45 minutes, contrary to the 4 hours needed for a similar amount of red meat. The protein value of 100 grams of Parmigiano Reggiano corresponds to 185 grams of ham, 225 grams of trout and 190 grams of pork.

Parmigiano Reggiano also has some medicinal applications due to its nutritional qualities, particularly in the area of pediatrics because of the digestibility of its protein elements, calcium and vitamins – all of which contribute to the growth of a young organism.
Gastronomical remarks
Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese with savoury taste and exquisite odour.
It wonderfully compliments the taste and smell of a first or second course dish, in addition to being an ideal appetizer, excellently harmonizing with traditional modena balsamic vinegar or fruit.
