Parmesan-cheese_3

Generic parmesan cheese is a family of hard grating cheeses made from cow’s milk and inspired by the original Parmesan or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese from Parma, Italy.They are generally pale yellow in color, and usually used grated on dishes like spaghetti, Caesar salad, and pizza.

Within the European Union, the term Parmesan may only be used, by law, to refer to Parmigiano-Reggiano itself, which must be made in a restricted geographic area, using stringently defined methods. Outside Europe, the name “Parmesan” has become genericized, and may denote any of a number of hard Italian-style grating cheeses, often commercialized under names intended to evoke the original: Parmesan, Parmigiana, Parmesana, Parmabon, Real Parma, Parmezan, Parmezano,Reggianito. After the European ruling that “parmesan” could not be used as a generic name, Kraft renamed its grated cheese “Pamesello” in Europe.
