Buffalo Mozzarella Definition
Buffalo mozzarella is a fresh mozzarella produced from the milk of water buffalo. The cheese is generally considered high quality because the water buffalo milk from which the cheese is made is thicker than regular milk.
It has more butterfat and more non-fat solids. (It also has 38% more calcium and 43% less cholesterol than cow’s milk.)
The cheese is a firm, stringy-textured cheese with a thin rind and delicate taste. It’s the ultimate cheese for pizza because of its creaminess and subtle flavor.
Also known as “Mozzarella di Bufala”.
Here’s Where You Can Get It
You'll love this Italian Mozzarella Di Buffala cheese for its slightly elastic consistency, with a thin and shiny rind that is porcelain white. The aroma of this mozzarella is enhanced at cutting, with the appearance of a slight whey draining with a scent of milk enzymes.
