Parmigiano Reggiano

A cool, dimly lit, well ventilated room with a temperature around 10 – 15°C and a relative humidity of 70 or 80% is the perfect place to store and preserve hard cheeses such as Parmigiano. Yet, rooms with all these features are rarely available; so, we suggest to preserve the cheese in the refrigerator and follow these precautions.

Fresh and medium ripened cheeses have a shorter life. It is preferable to consume them a few days after the purchase, so that they do not lose their flavour. If poorly preserved, they usually take on an unpleasant smell and taste, which might spread to the products near them.

Where to preserve them: in the refrigerator
Temperature: 2 – 4°C
Product life (once opened): around 15 days

Fresh cheeses

This category is even more subject to deterioration. Once the packages are open, the products should be consumed within a few days in order to avoid them to become dry and lose flavour and quality. We also suggest to use a thermal bag to take them home from the store, especially during the warm season, in order to avoid excessive temperature changes that could affect them.

The freshest, most delicate products require special care when it comes to preservation.

Yogurt & Desserts

Our yoghurt is made with fresh milk; some of our desserts, such as Panna Cotta and Crema Catalana, contain fresh cream, and that means that they need to be consumed immediately once the package is open. These products need to be preserved by following rules similar to those recommended for Mascarpone and other fresh dairy goods.
