Caciocavallo Silano PDO is a cheese with very ancient origins. In Italian “cacio” means cheese and “cavallo” both “across” and “horse”, and there are various hypothesis on the origin of the name: some refer it to the custom, still alive, to tie cheeses in pairs and hang them to mature across a beam.
After the prized European PDO certification, it is produced exclusively with whole raw milk from dairy farms in the territory using a finely-defined processing procedure.
It has a delicate taste and a high nutritional content that gives it an important place in the Mediterranean diet. As a guarantee of its authenticity, genuineness and nutritional value, it is branded by fire with the typical pine tree of the Protection Consortium.
INGREDIENTS: Raw cow's MILK, WHEY starter culture, salt, rennet.
