Crottin de Chavignol

60 grams

Crottin de Chavignol [pronounced as crot-an' deu cha-veen-yol] is the most famous goat cheese from the village of Chavignol, France in Loire Valley with protected designation of origin or the AOC Seal. It has been produced since the 16th century with traditional methods, aged through three stages. Its flavor and aroma develop as it matures, refined and perfected by cheesemakers. It is one of the rare cheeses that can be served in all stages of its maturity.

This artisan cheese is made of fresh raw milk of alpine goats and has a crumbly soft-ripened texture with a subtle nutty flavor, produced in a cylindrical shape with rounded edges. As it comes of age, its flavor becomes more robust and pronounced, its exterior becomes a rough hard coat, and its fragrance ranges from the aroma of fresh cream to that of the undergrowths of Autumn.

Health Benefits:

Crottin de chavignol is one of the types of cheeses that is pure and original providing a range of nutrients for the daily dairy intake. A hundred-gram serving is an excellent source of protein, calcium, vitamin A, vitamins B2 and B9, and essential minerals such as copper, phosphorus, and selenium. It contains healthy fats as well and provides beneficial bacteria from its lactic ferments with naturally growing probiotics.

Two to three portions of cheese a day for the normal diet cover the dairy part of the diet supporting bone health, metabolism, satiety, and assisting in the absorption of minerals. Goat's milk also has a relatively low content of lactose compared to cow's milk and so cheese made from goat milk is easier to be digested.
