Idiazabal cheese identification (Protected Designation of Origin-PDO)

This analysis can be carried out both in milk and cheese. The analysis has been accredited by ENAC.

The identification of breed differentiation DNA markers allows to verify if the milk used in production belongs to Latxa or Carranza sheep breeds or, on the contrary, if other breeds have been used.

This genetic identification can be carried out both in milk and cheese, and it is very useful to control PDO Idiazabal cheese production
