Whether it’s shredded, shaved, or grated, parmesan cheese is a delicious, robust addition to any dish. Its distinct, nutty flavor isn’t the only great thing about it – parmesan cheese has many health benefits as well!
Parmesan cheese is:
- Easily digestible
- An incredible source of calcium – just one ounce attributes 35 percent of the recommended daily intake
- Rich in protein
- Beneficial for the eyes, teeth, and skin
Because parmesan is significantly aged, its fat content is broken down to short-chain acids, which are absorbed easier and provide more energy to the body.
