LACTOSE-FREE, FOR THE PALATE’S DELIGHT
Even lactose-intolerant individuals may enjoy a moment of taste.
Actually, it is worth highlighting that not all milk-by products entail lactose, as the study “Composition of Italian PDO Cheeses” shows. In fact, during the production process, some aged cheeses are provided with specific bacteria that eliminate lactose transforming it into lactic acid.
Montasio aged for at least 60 days is simply lactose-free; therefore, it is also suitable for people who are intolerant to this type of sugar.
Laboratory tests prove that Montasio cheese shows values of lactose under 0.01 g in 100 g of product, about 10 times less the actual limit as established in national and Community legislation.
