Cheese is a solid food that is obtained by ripening the curd of goat and sheep milk, from animals raised in freedom in the pastures of Extremadura, once the whey is removed.
Fresh Cheese: This type of cheese is not cured, so it has the softest texture. In addition, it is the one that contains a higher percentage of water and less fat.
Soft Cheese: Its healing period is very short, from 15 to 30 days. Like the fresh one it contains a high percentage of water, little fat.
Semi-mature cheese: The semi-cured have undergone a period of 2 or 3 months of cure in chambers. It has a stronger flavor than the previous ones and a much harder texture.
Cured Cheese: The healing time is between 4 and 7 months. This type of cheese has very little water and is somewhat fatty. Its flavor is very strong.
Old Cheese: Those cheeses that undergo a maturation time above 7 months. Without a doubt, they have the most intense flavor and texture, the lowest water content and the most rigid crust.
