Produced using sheep’s milk, Vastedda del Belice DOP is one of the few sheep’s stretched cheeses on the market. This product of Sicily has the distinction of being one of the few sheep cheese made from spun paste. Its milk content exclusively comes from sheep bred in Belice valley.
Vastedda del Belice DOP has a unique and characteristic flavour of fresh sheep’s cheese with a slightly sour taste but not acrid. Its typical bun shape and slightly convex surfaces on the side makes it different from the rest.
With a uniform white colour, this cheese is smooth, flavourful and nutritious. It is especially rich in calcium, protein, fat-soluble and vitamins. Unlike most of the cheese out there, Vastedda del Belice DOP is light and highly digestive.
You can use Vastedda del Belice DOP as an ingredient in many recipes and can also consume it alone or as a compliment for tasty salads.
