Mineral salts

Grana Padano PDO is above all a great source of calcium: a fundamental substance because it plays a crucial role in the processes of nerve conduction, muscle contraction and cell permeability: 50 g of Grana Padano cheese provides 50% of the recommended daily calcium needed for adults between the ages of 18 and 60.

It also supplies a high amount of other mineral salts:
  • Iodine, essential for the thyroid
  • Selenium, which helps fight free radicals
  • Magnesium, for the development and maintenance of the bone structure and to stimulate muscles and nerves
  • Phosphorus, for the proper functioning of brain cells and the strengthening of teeth and bones
