Mizithra

Mizithra

Mizithra is produced from vestal sheep’s and goat’s Messinian milk. We mix this milk with whey to get as a result a cheese product with an excellent quality.

Mizithra’s color is white and often is used powdered in Pasta and greek traditional pies.

A few words about Mizithra:

Mizithra has a briny taste.To set the Mixture (milk and whey) we put it in to a strain fabric.The four corners of strain fabric are clinged  from a high level spot. With that way the final form of  Mizithra’s shape looks like an appricot. There are two kinds of Mizithra the hard one and the soft one.
