Halloumi is the traditional Cypriot cheese well known worldwide for its unique taste and has been produced on the island for centuries from a mixture of cow, sheep and goats milk soaked in brine. It’s an excellent source of protein, zinc, magnesium, vitamin A, and B vitamins. Fresh Halloumi has a distinct aroma and a mild milky and creamy flavour. Moderately salty and the dried mint leaves are added to the cheese during dry salting to give the product a ‘minty’ flavour. It is distinguished for its quality and taste and the only kind of cheese, which can be enjoyed in such a variety of ways. Halloumi Cheese can be served fresh as it comes, fried, grilled, and grated on pasta or on a hot dish. It can be also served with a variety of fresh fruits. It is sold vacuum-packed in a little of its own whey to keep it moist. It can be refrigerated, or even frozen, for up to one year. It has a high melting point so it can be fried or grilled without melting. It can also be barbecued, mixed in a salad or an omelette, grated on pasta, and combined with many meats
* Keep refrigerated at 0-6 degrees Celsius.
