The cheese factory
Goat cheese: such a precious food
Goat cheese is a dairy product of high nutritional quality: it is especially rich in calcium and iron, essential for bones and teeth mineralization, while the simple structure of its proteins and fats makes it highly digestible.
It is also extremely similar to breastmilk from an organoleptic point of view, which made goat cheese the first milk ever consumed by humans in ancient times.
Goat cheese has thus a lower fat value and is far easier to digest than cow milk cheese, and it is generally better tolerated by those allergic to milk protein.
The unique features of our goat cheese
low fat content (average fat 3.8%)
rich in precious nutrients (average protein 3.65%)
production: 150 lt / day; 3.8 lt / day per goat
Accurate monitoring and food safety
Our cheese factory is HACCP certified and it also signed up to the “Milk Quality Protocol” (“Piano Qualità Latte”) by ARAL Lombardia, which requires and performs strict inspections in order to guarantee high standards in the milk quality of its members.
Our milk is sampled and analyzed on a regular basis, both in its average values (“mass sampling”) and on a single animal level: this allows to identify and target potential issues unambiguously, thus to take action without delay where necessary.
Further to this, regular controls are also performed on the cold chamber and on the water used for the rearing and the cheese production, so that 360 degree food safety can be guaranteed.
