Stracchino (o Crescenza)
Pasteurized – Cow’S Milk
Stracchino also known as crescenza is a type of Italian cow’s-milk spreadable cheese, typical of Lombardy, Piedmont, and Veneto. It is eaten very young, has no rind and a very soft, creamy texture and normally a mild and delicate flavour. It is normally square in form. The name of the cheese derives from the Italian word "stracca", meaning "tired". It is said that the milk from tired cows coming down in the autumn from the alpine pastures, is richer in fats and more acidic. Stracchino is usually eaten on its own, but in Recco (on the Ligurian riviera) it is used as the filling for focaccia with cheese, and in Romagna (portion of the Emilia Romagna region) to fill the classic Piadina.Thanks to modern technologies, because of its short shelf-life, is available also IQF frozen.
