The renown of Parmigiano-Reggiano and other types of grana is in part due to their truly extraordinary nutritional value. These cheeses have the highest percentage of proteins of any cheese—33%, which is far more protein than any meat, and these proteins are very digestible. All varieties of grana contain large quantities of numerous mineral salts like calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium as well as vitamin A, B complex, and PP. Parmigiano in particular is recommended for babies, children and the elderly, as well as for athletes.
Parmigiano-Reggiano, Grana Padano and Grana Trentino are often used interchangeably and are important ingredients in countless recipes—from filled pastas and crepes to gnocchi or meatloaf.One of the most elegant yet simple ways to enjoy Parmigiano-Reggiano is in the remarkable Carpaccio recipe, where Parmigiano is served in slivers on top of thin slices of raw beef tenderloin. Balsamic vinegar is the perfect complement for grana, as a simple dipping glaze or in salads. As a dessert, it can be enjoyed with various fruit, particularly with pears. Parmigiano is also eaten just as it is, at the end of a meal or during the day as a snack—as just about every Italian kid can tell you!
