Gorgonzola holds extraordinary values and properties.
Did you know, for example, that Gorgonzola DOP is a naturally lactose-free cheese*?
(*less than 0.1g/100g, a natural consequence of the typical production process. It contains galactose.”).
Lactose is digested by the body thanks to the enzyme lactase, whose activity in some people may be impaired. In Gorgonzola DOP, lactose is consumed by lactic acid bacteria during fermentation.
It is therefore a cheese that is well tolerated even by those who have difficulty digesting this sugar.
And to think that everyone eats it just because it tastes good. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle is important.
