Thanks to Grana Padano’s raw materials, it has great nutritional qualities.
Grana Padano’s versatility allows it to adapt to various dietary needs.
Every bite of Grana Padano provides the perfect blend of nutrients.
Contains proteins with high biological value.
Just one portion of Grana Padano contains a high concentration of proteins: Leucine, Lysine, Phenylalanine and Tyrosine, to name a few. Additionally, being a dairy product, Grana Padano supplies the same protein input as milk, but in a concentrated form. This means that 60g of Grana Padano contains the same amount of nutrients found in 1 litre of milk.
Essential mineral salts.
Eating Grana Padano regularly will boost your daily intake of mineral salts which form a vital part of a balance diet, such as zinc, copper and phosphorus but, most importantly, calcium: a 50g portion contains 580mg of this mineral, important for the development of strong bones.
Vitamins, essential for a healthy diet.
It is also an important source of A and B2 vitamins: the average percentage equals to a third of the RDA fixed by EU. In addition, a 50g portion will supply 75% of the daily amount of B12 vitamin recommended for an adult.
Fats: a small amount is good.
Technically, Grana Padano is a semi-fat cheese, meaning it is made from partially skimmed milk. A 50g portion contains approximately 30% fat. It is mostly “good” unsaturated fat, providing half of the daily percentage recommended.
And the sugars?
Grana Padano is completely carbohydrate free and is lactose-free due to the characteristics of its production and to the long ageing period, which is why it is perfectly suited for people who suffer from lactose intolerance. It contains less than 10mg/100g galactose.
