BROOKLYN, N.Y., July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Springfield Group Inc., a Brooklyn based importer and distributor focused on high quality kosher foods, is supplying the New York Metro area, as well as other parts of the US with the only Kosher certified Parmigiano Reggiano cheese available on the market.
A dedicated website, www.kosherparm.com went live on July 1st to help reach consumers and members of the trade who would be interested in finding Kosher Parmigiano Reggiano. Live cooking shows in supermarkets throughout the New Jersey area have also been introducing the product to excited audiences, both those that follow a strictly kosher diet as well as those that don't necessarily but find it to be an excellent product.
Kosher Parmigiano Reggiano is produced by the Bertinelli farm (www.bertinelli.it), located in the cheese's certified production area in the areas surrounding Parma, Italy. This PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) Parmigiano Reggiano conforms to kashrut, the Jewish law on food based on the interpretation of the Torah. Bertinelli PDO Parmigiano Reggiano received kosher certification from by OK Kosher Certification.
The first wheel of Bertinelli's Kosher Parmigiano Reggiano was opened in October 2015, at EXPO, the world's fair based in Milan, Italy, at the Israel Pavilion. All the phases of the production process of the cheese, starting from the breeding of the cows to the ageing of the cheese in the dairy farm, take place under strict Rabbinic supervision while still maintaining all traditional aspects of the cheese while all the plants and technical structures have been sanitized to match the kashrut.
About Parmigiano Reggiano
For more than 900 years Parmigiano Reggiano has been produced exclusively in the Italian provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and parts of the provinces of Mantua and Bologna, on the plains, hills and mountains enclosed between the rivers Po and Reno. From these deep roots in a protected and respected environment, come the unique qualities, which characterize the "king of cheeses".
The feeding of cattle complies with the norms of a strict specification that bans the use of silage and fermented feeds. Parmigiano Reggiano is aged a minimum of 12 months while most Parmigiano Reggiano available in the US is aged a minimum of 24-36 months. No additives or preservatives are ever used as part of the strict production guidelines nor are they needed due to the humidity controlled aging techniques and long ageing times, resulting in a naturally lactose free cheese.
