The history of Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
The passion and dedication of the Casaro totally involved me. I have traveled with interest the impressive warehouse where aging “wheels” are kept. The history of this extraordinary product has its roots in an ancient past. The origins date back to the Middle Ages and are generally placed around the 12th century. At the Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries of Parma and Reggio Emilia, the first toll-booths appeared: thanks to the abundance of watercourses and wide pastures, the production of a hard cheese was obtained in this rather limited area. through the processing of milk in large boilers.
Born in the heart of Emilia, historically between the provinces of Reggio and Parma and for this it is called Parmigiano Reggiano but also involves all of Emilia, Modena, Bologna as regards the right side of the river Reno, Mantova up to the Po river. In these lands the Parmigiano Reggiano evolved, once with many dairies, just immagine that in every neighborhood there was a dairy.
The simplicity of the product
We can certainly say that it is absolutely natural, just think that the ingredients to produce it are uniquely milk, salt and rennet. Milk is used raw as excessive heat treatments would reduce the bacterial flora. Parmigiano Reggiano is therefore natural and typical starting from what is invisible to the naked eye, such as lactic bacteria. It is these bacteria that help the cheese making give the cheese its characteristic aroma. In addition, serums created in the laboratory are not used and rennet is never produced from microbial cultures, but it is always natural, in fact it arrives from the calves’ stomach
The King of Cheeses is Natural
also means “healthy” in fact contains only 30% of water and 70% of nutrients: it is a cheese rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals. Thanks to its aroma, flavor and natural properties is also called “The King of Cheeses”. It certainly have happened to you during a trip abroad to enter a supermarket, you have noticed that Parmigiano Reggiano is the most imitated product in the world, in fact abroad we find Parmesan, Reggianito and many other products that obviously do not even remotely resemble the original . To protect Parmigiano Reggiano, the dairies have joined in a protection consortium which is the owner of the PDO brand which regulates production.
The Parmigiano Reggiano consortium
It counts 330 dairy factories active in the three provinces of Modena, Reggio and Parma and a part of the provinces of Bologna and Mantova up to the Po river. These 330 dairies have produced about three and a half million “wheels” in 2016, three million and six hundred thousand in 2017 to reach three million seven hundred thousand in 2018. If you find yourself passing through production areas I recommend a stop to visit a dairy.
