    Blue cheese produced with whole buffalo milk cheese from artisan Catalan cheese factory Formatges Muntanyola. It is the only Spanish blue cheese made from buffalo milk.  Middle but powerful flavour and spicy character has a very creamy texture. Buffalo milk provides more calcium, more protein and less cholesterol than other milks.

    This cheese is made by a family business, Formatges Muntanyola, at Mas Vilavendrell in Muntanyola, an ancient Roman villa at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level, in the middle of oak trees on the Vic Plain.

    With the title of master artisan cheesemaker and member of the Cantabria Magistral Council. Bufalet Blau is an artisan, semi-cured blue cheese made with pasteurised buffalo milk and enzymatic coagulation. Despite the scarce presence of the characteristic blue mould streaks, it leaves no doubt that it is a blue cheese, due to its powerful flavour and the typical sharpness on the tip of the tongue at the end. Creamy texture accentuated in the heart of the cheese, intense aroma and flavour with sweet and mouldy hints from the refining, which lingers on the taste buds for a long time.

    Buffalo milk has: 58% more calcium, 40% more protein, and 43% less cholesterol than cow's milk. It is a rich source of iron, phosphorus, vitamin A and contains high levels of the natural antioxidant "tocopheral" and is a good substitute for people who are intolerant to cow's milk protein.
