The value of a natural choice

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is a resource of nature and human labour that is available for all sportspeople.
For over nine centuries this cheese has been made only with raw milk from production area, delivered to the dairies right after milking, with the only addition of natural lactic ferments.
It contains no preservatives or additives.
With its richness in minerals and nutrients, its full flavour and aromas, it combines health and taste thanks to its lengthy maturation (minimum 12 months, normally consumed at 24 months) which makes the cheese easy to digest.
These are precise production standards established by the Protection Consortium.
These strict rules are the foundations for the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). These standards and the commitment of the people who make Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese every day lead to those exceptional nutritional characteristics and taste that are not only unique, but as a symbol of Italian food worldwide.



The value of healthy Food

Parmigiano-Reggiano is a semi-fat cheese made from partly skimmed milk. Its lipid are a source of ready-to-use energy.
During its lengthy maturation period, the casein contained in milk releases high amounts of free amino acids, which are immediately assimilated by the body, and produces peptides, which are easy to digest and can carry out different metabolic functions.
Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is an efficient and very rich source of calcium (50 grams account for 50% the daily calcium requirements).
