Is a fresh mozzarella produced from the milk of water buffalo. The cheese is generally considered to be of 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 considered the ultimate cheese for pizza because of its creaminess and subtle flavor. Also known as “Mozzarella di Bufala”.« Back to Glossary Index
