Training with Gorgonzola

Did you know that Gorgonzola PDO is an amazing natural Functional Food for fitness? This is all thanks to the typical moulds that predigest the proteins, transforming them into small peptides and free amino acids that are easily assimilated. For this reason, Gorgonzola Pdo is one of the most digestible cheeses!

The well-known Italian nutritionist and diet coach Samantha Biale reveals this: “The perfect time to taste bread and Gorgonzola is immediately after training, when your body needs a quick muscle recovery”. A portion of Gorgonzola Pdo also reduces tiredness and fatigue thanks to its high biological value proteins and several micronutrients, such as vitamins A and B12, folate, calcium, phosphorus and zinc.

What about your figure? Do not worry, studies show that cheeses rich in calcium and protein, such as Gorgonzola Pdo, stimulate your metabolism and promote fat loss while preserving lean mass. “Abolishing dairy products to lose weight and stay toned – concludes the nutritionist – is not only unnecessary, it’s nonsense!

Please remember that it is important to maintain a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle at all times. 

In addition, a high level of quality and production of Gorgonzola cheese is protected and safeguarded in Italy and abroad. Gorgonzola cheese is, in fact, approved by the European Union and registered in the list of Pdo products (Protected Designation of Origin) on 12/06/96 with EC Reg. n° 1107. In order to benefit from this denomination, the cheese must comply with the conformity requirements set out in the relevant product specification that all producers must respect. Authorised by the Italian State and under its supervision, the Consortium for the protection of Gorgonzola DOP cheese was created in 1970. Its officials ensure that the laws in force in Italy and in all the countries of the world where the designation of origin “Gorgonzola” is protected are fully respected and applied.
