History and uniqueness

Buffalo Butter is a PAT product. It is an official approval for traditional Italian regional food products similar to the Protected Geographical Status of the European. In all the areas of mozzarella production around Naples, Caserta and Salerno, a special kind of butter called "burro di bufala" is made out buffalo milk or the whey left over from mozzarella production. Buffalo milk is rich in vitamins A, B, C, protein and nutrients. Because of the fact that buffalo milk does not contain casein it is much more easier to digest than cow’s milk. Furthermore, buffalo milk has a positive effect on the quality of sleep, improves activity of the central nervous system and boosts up the immune system.
