Fior di latte or mozzarella di bufala, what’s the difference? (+ super tip!)

Must Try

You see it more and more in one of the tastiest corners of the supermarket: fior di latte mozzarella. But what exactly is fior di latte, what is the difference with mozzarella di buffala and what does it have to do with mozzarella?

fior di latte vs. mozzarella di bufala

The main difference is the type of milk used to make the mozzarella. Fior di latte means creamy milk, it is made from fresh, creamy cow ‘s milk. Mozzarella di bufala is made from buffalo milk. And that tastes different!

Super tip: in Italy buffalo mozzarella is used for cold preparations such as over salads or pasta. You use Fior di latte mozzarella for warm preparations, such as on a pizza or in a lasagna. With this distinction in mind you can now go to the supermarket, but it is really no crime if you use fior di latte with the salad, you are forgiven with this one.

Just promise yourself at least solemnly: no more elastic factory balls, that’s a waste of your time, money and evening meal.

Mozzarella is a fresh cheese

With the above promise to yourself, you go to the supermarket in good spirits. Supermarket mozzarellas have a bad name, but you can now buy better mozzarella at many supermarkets. Pay close attention to the packaging, then you can see what type of milk it is made of. Also check the best before date . Mozzarella is a fresh cheese . Is it long lasting? Then there is always an addition made in a factory.

Mozzarella is made in a special production process called Pasta Filata. The spheres are formed by hand resulting in the specific spout at the top of the sphere. You will always recognize the handmade mozzarella from now on.

In the past, mozzarella was mainly made in Italy, but luckily we can now also enjoy fresh (buffalo) mozzarella made with milk from the Netherlands in the Netherlands. Take a look at the Buffalo farm Twente website.
