Lactose Free Brigante
In order to meet the growing demand of consumers we have created LACTOSE-FREE BRIGANTE (with less than 0.01% of lactose) from the well-known Brigante. Its production occurs thanks to the enzymatic breakdown – and not according to the natural lactose disintegration determined by the maturation of the product – into its two main components: sucrose and galactose as well as to make it more easily digestible without giving up on milky flavor and delicious taste of fresh Pecorino.
We obtain a fresh sheep’s milk cheese, ready for tasting after only 20-25 days. It preserves the same intense milky aroma, soft texture and a sweet, refined taste. It is the perfect balance between flavor and freshness. The rind is pale-yellow, with the typical grooves of “Canestrati Cheeses” (basket-shape rind). The inside of the cheese is cream in color and soft, with few appetizing eyes.
Pasteurized sheep’s milk, calf rennet, milk enzymes, salt.
