- Ever wonder why mozzarella is so stretchy? When cheese is young the protein structure is largely elastic, making it smooth. Mozzarella, a very young cheese, isn’t cured at all, giving it a long stretch and pleasantly chewy texture.
- If you come across the term ‘fior de latte’ it means mozzarella made from cow’s milk. Contrary to popular belief, mozzarella di bufala (made
from water buffalo milk) is hardly ever used for pizza and
rather eaten raw.
- Simonsberg mozzarella contains no animal rennet, so
vegetarians can enjoy it too.
