Parmigiano-Reggiano (also known as Parmesan Cheese) is a hard granular cheese with a long and natural maturation. It’s a highly concentrated cheese and contains only 30% water and 70% nutrients.This means that Parmigiano-Reggiano is very rich in protein, vitamin and mineral. In the system of sensory analysis, all the senses are involved and stimulated when the cheese is tasted.
Sight recognizes the color (of the rind and paste).
Touch feels the texture (its oiliness, how the cheese responds to pressure or crumbling).
Smell enjoys the aromas, and Taste savors the flavors.
Even Hearing is involved, in the sound of the crystals being crushed when chewing the cheese.
