"Kalogerakis" Cretan Graviera Light approx. 300g

An innovative recipe which meets the modern needs combining tradition with the demands of their modern times. Kalogerakis added his passion and knowledge, he removed the fat and salt and he managed to keep the taste of the traditional Cretan Graviera intact.

Kalogerakis Graviera Light is the first Graviera with 10% less salt and 30% less fat. The original product of the Cretan Diet is healthier than ever. Kalogerakis paved the way for everyone’s pleasure by creating a luscious product which is worth tasting because it relieves not only our palate but also our heart. It matures for at least 3 months and it is made from sheep/ goat milk.

Texture and Colour: It is characterized as a very light yellow-coloured table cheese with asymmetric holes.
