Parmigiano Reggiano: Here is the Nutritionist’s Dr. Chiara Mezzetti’s opinion

Parmigiano Reggiano: The nutritionist says…

Parmigiano Reggiano? Excellent!

Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese with a long maturation period, rich in protein and minerals, suitable for everyone's diet.

Even from the beginning of weaning, it covers our calcium and phosphorus needs that are essential for healthy and strong bones. A small 20-gram piece contains the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk!

It’s also an effective aid in the development of the immune system in small children. It plays a probiotic effect, stimulating the production of intestinal flora that protects against infection.

Parmigiano Reggiano during adolescence

During adolescence, it provides energy for teens on the go especially during long study periods or for those who do sports.

Parmigiano Reggiano for pregnant women

It is a gold mine for pregnant women: It provides folic acid, calcium and vitamins without being heavy. It is easy to digest and is often the only high quality organic food that does not cause nausea!

Parmigiano Reggiano during menopause

In small quantities, it can be helpful also during menopause to restore any bone loss.

Parmigiano Reggiano for those with food intolerances

Parmigiano Reggiano aged 36 months doesn’t contain lactose so those who have food intolerances can also eat it.

In fact, it contains no sugars of any kind so it is suitable for diabetics and for those who follow a high protein diet.

Parmigiano Reggiano for a slimming diet

Parmigiano Reggiano can also be used in a weight loss program, especially if it is paired with raw mushrooms or raw artichokes. It has a diuretic effect and fights water retention ... try it to believe it!
