Granarolo Grana Padano DOP is a typical Italian cheese, produced in full compliance with the policy of the PDO Protection Consortium. It is produced using only cow’s milk from the farms of the Po Valley. At the end of the cheese making process, Grana Padano develops a firm, thick and deeply straw-coloured rind protecting the fragrant, dry, flaking interior. Grana means “grainy” in Italian which is reflected in the fine granular texture with an intensely sweet flavour. As Grana Padano ages, the flavours become pronounced, savoury and complex and the texture becomes more crumbly. Protected Designation of Origin. Grated, it can be used as an ingredient for meat or vegetable fillings , in baked or au gratin dishes. Also excellent on pasta, risotto and soups. You can also use it as an appetizer. It is a genuine and nutritious food, with an excellent balance of energy value, quality and quantity of nutrients. It is also rich in calcium and phosphorous, necessary for healthy bones and teeth. To qualify for PDO certification, the cheese must age for at least nine months.
