Cheeses made from cow´s milk
Milk collection and storage: Milk is collected from the cow and stored in a refrigerated tank to keep it fresh.
- Pasteurisation: The milk undergoes a pasteurisation process, to eliminate any harmful bacteria.
- Renneting: Rennet is added to the milk to coagulate the proteins and separate the solid mass (the rennet) from the liquid (whey).
- Cutting and moulding: The solid mass is cut and moulded into the desired shape. The size and shape may vary depending on the type of cheese being produced.
- Salting: The cheese is immersed in a salty solution to add flavour and help preserve it.
- Ripening: The cheese is kept in a cool, dark place to mature, the ripening time can vary from a few weeks to several months, depending on the type of cheese. During this time, the flavour and texture develop.
- Packaging: Finally, the cheese is packaged in paper or plastic for sale and consumption.
At Your Spanish Shop we only select the best quality cured cow´s cheese, from brands such as García Vaquero, Central Lechera Asturiana, Gran Capitán or El Ventero.

Our range of cow´s cheeses made in Spain
There are many varieties of cured cow´s cheese, and of course, very light fresh cheeses. It is important to know the distinction between the two types in order to choose a cow´s cheese that suits our tastes.
Fresh cow´s cheese
Fresh cow´s cheese is a type of cheese made from unripened cow´s milk, which means that it has not undergone a prolonged preservation process. It is characterised by a smooth, creamy texture and a mild, slightly acidic taste.
Fresh cow´s cheese is ideal for eating on its own or as an ingredient in salads, sandwiches and other recipes.
Cow´s milk cheese is lower in fat and calories than other types of cheese, making it a healthy choice for those who wish to maintain a balanced diet.
Cured cow´s cheese
Cured cow´s cheese is produced from cow´s milk and is characterised by a strong flavour and a firm, dry texture. This type of cheese is produced through a lengthy maturing process, which may take several months or even years, depending on the type of cheese and the storage conditions.
During the ripening process, the cheese is subjected to different temperatures and humidity levels, which allows the flavours and aromas to develop and intensify.
At Your Spanish Shop we have a wide variety of cured cow´s cheeses of Spanish origin.
