Grana Padano

Known for its grana—or grainy—texture, Grana Padano is a hard, straw-colored cheese hailing from Northern Italy’s Po Valley. Made from partially skimmed cow’s milk, il Giardino® Grana Padano cheese is noticeably high in protein and other nutrients. Grana Padano is often compared to Parmagiano Reggiano® in taste, but differs in that it is handmade year-round and aged for shorter periods of time. Many cheese aficionados praise its mellow, nutty flavor which pairs perfectly with dried fruit and nuts.
