Formaggio in crema cheese
Characteristics: Creamy cheese.
Production area: Pinerolo.
Breeds: Saanen breed.
Production technique: For every milk yield, curds are produced by natural acidic coagulation, a slow process which takes about two days with the aid of only a small quantity of kid rennet. The curds are gently drained on fine cloths with the addition of 1% of salt.
Ageing: Not necessary but the cheese can be eaten up to 2-3 weeks after production. The more mature the product, the more it loses its acidity.
