LAIT's Ricotta Gentile has a brilliant white paste, which is soft and creamy.


It comes from the whey dividing from curdled milk obtained in sheep's cheese production. Whilst heating the whey, ricotta appears in light and fluffy flakes which are delicately placed in the truncated conic baskets.It has a sweet taste and an aroma of fresh milk. It has high nutritional values because of its rich whey protein presence.


Ricotta Salata follows the same procedure but includes pressing and dry-salting procedures.
With its sweet and slightly acidic taste, it is excellent both served at the table and for grating purposes.
