Nutritional qualities

Doctors and nutritionists agree that Parmigiano-Reggiano can play an important role in a balanced diet and, because of its nutritional values, they recommend that it’s included in everyone’s diet.

Paediatricians recommend it in the diet of children of all ages for its many proteins, easy digestibility and concentrations of calcium and vitamins so necessary for growth.

It is also very good for athletes, whether professional or amateur, because it is easily digested. It’s also very beneficial for the elderly because of its high content of calcium, phosphorous and all the most important vitamins.


Parmigiano-Reggiano is a complete food with remarkable qualities, formed during the long, natural ageing process.
