Grana Padano- new larger size !

Grana Padano is a wonderful semi-fat hard cheese which is matured slowly. It may be used as a table cheese or for grating. A golden, oily rind encases a white or straw-colored fine-grained cheese with crumbly fissures radiating outwards from the center. The taste is fragrant and delicate, similar to a Reggiano Parmesan. Grate on soup, pasta or in sauces. Grana Padano is an Italian, DOP, cow’s milk cheese. Its name is derived from the Italian word “grana” which translates as “grain” to describe its hard and grainy texture, and “Padano” which refers to the “Val Padana,” the cheeses origin in the Po River Valley. The cheese was originally created in the 12th Century by Cistercian monks. It is a Parmesan cheese that most closely resembles Parmigiano Reggiano in appearances and in its method of production.


What is the
difference between Reggiano and Grana Padano :
  • Grana Padano is made from both skim and whole milk while the Parmigiano Reggiano is made only from skim milk.
  • Grana Padano being creamier and slightly less saltier that the Parmigiano Reggiano
  • The Cows have different diets – the Grana Padano cows are less restricted in their diet and are allowed to eat silage in their feed while the Parmigiano Reggiano cows must be fed fresh or dried vegetable matter.
  • Grana Padano comes from a larger area of production.
