Greek Feta Cheese
Greek Feta Cheese made from sheep's milk is regarded as a premium quality cheese. Feta is a brined curd style cheese and since 2005, the European Union has registered 'feta' as a protected designated of origin. This means that in the EU, 'feta' must be from Greece and be made from sheep's milk or at least 70% sheep's milk and 30% goat's milk. A 'brined' cheese is an aged white cheese stored in a brine solution to assist with preserving and character maturation.
