Queso de Valdeón
Valdeón cheese is an 'Indicación Geográfica Protegida' blue cheese produced in the province of León, in the heart of the Valle de Valdeón in the Picos de Europa.
It is made with goat’s milk or cow’s or a mixture of both and matured in caves. It has a very strong flavour and high fat content, and is slightly yellow with a soft texture. It is traditionally wrapped in aluminium foil, to preserve it and maintain the humidity level.
Recent research conducted by the University of León have shown the presence of anticarcinogenics in the cheese which can help protect against cancer.
