Description

Buffalo Mozzarella

Mozzarella takes its name from its specific manufacturing procedure. Mozzarella contains a lactic smell and a slightly viscous and elastic texture, it has no crust and the paste is pressed and fresh with a smooth and creamy taste.

This type of cheese is produced in the form of a ball, it is also in the form of a pearl with a weight that can vary between 100 g and 1 kg. Those that are larger in the form of braid or knot, can weigh up to 3 kilograms. The size should not change its characteristics.

Mozzarella cheese is made industrially with 90% cow's milk. For these reasons, the flavor of the different types of mozzarella varies depending on the quality of the cheese and the way it is made.

Mozzarella characteristics

The packaging of mozzarella cheese is a very special aspect within its characteristics, this consists of the use of a special paper or a transparent plastic bag that keeps the product immersed in the whey. This wrap has the words “buffalo bell mozzarella” printed

This technique ensures you perceive the freshness and fluidity of a white liquid outside the cheese when it is cut, which emits a very pleasant milk smell.

In addition to the famous buffalo bell mozzarella, you can also find rich and tasty variations such as smoked mozzarella, refined cheese (scamorza) or enriched cream (burrata and stracciatella).

Properties of mozzarella cheese

The significant presence of protein substances and lactic flora, with a high content of vitamins, minerals, and calcium in their richness, makes it nutritionally an excellent product.

Mozzarella is low in fat, rich in protein and calcium. It is also rich in phosphorus and other water-soluble vitamins. A 40 g serving of cow's milk mozzarella provides an average of 100 cal, 7 g of protein, 7 g of fat and 180 mg of calcium, 20% of the recommended daily intake.

Mozzarella cheese is also less rich in fat than most hard cheeses, but its contributions are close to the average of cheeses.

Substitutes

Mozzarella cheese is served more as an accompanying cheese for its delicate flavor. You can also eat raw in salads, on pizzas, pasta, gratins, etc. This cheese has many versions in the market, so when you want to find a mozzarella substitute to prepare these dishes, there is no major problem. The options include:

    This is wonderful Mozzarella! I did find it to be salty but when I took a piece and squeezed it in my hand to get all the liquid out then the salty taste went away and the cheese flavor came out. I think it’s the best tasting fresh mozzarella I’ve ever had.
