The Bulgarian white brined cheese (Bulgarsko byalo salamureno sirene) is recognized by the European Commission as a Protected Designation of Origin. This PDO, similar to that of Bulgarian yogurt, specifies that the cheese must be produced exclusively within Bulgaria’s borders using full-fat milk from cows, sheep, goats, buffaloes, or their blends from the region.
The cheese’s unique qualities stem from the country’s advantageous climate and natural environment, which foster the growth of lactic acid bacteria. These bacteria have been integral to the cheese-making process for centuries, shaping its distinct characteristics.
Sheep’s milk white cheese (Bulgarian white brined cheese or Sirene) matured in brine, is made from fresh pasteurized sheep milk from free-grazing animals. The best milk with the natural aroma of Balkan pastures and the farmers’ traditions in cheese-making, guarantee the excellent taste of our sheep’s milk white cheese in brine. Original Bulgarian cheese rennet is used, giving a unique taste and aroma to the product.
LDS Trading sheep’s cheese can be used as a basic ingredient or perfect addition in almost every Mediterranean, Balkan, or Arab cuisine dish. Its special taste makes it a great contribution to modern types of healthy food such as sandwiches, salads, or side dishes.
It is characterized by a high nutritional value mainly due to the high content of complete proteins (17-18%) and milk fats (22-25%).
Sheep’s milk white cheese is rich in minerals, especially Ca, and a variety of vitamins (especially A and D).
