Say Cheese! New Study Confirms Health Benefits of Pecorino Romano Cheese
Date:3/24/2010

Universities in Italy, in conjunction with a team of doctors from the United States, announced the results of a six-year long research study confirming that Pecorino Romano Cheese contains high amounts of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), an Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid naturally found in certain food groups. The study reveals that even in small amounts, Pecorino Romano Cheese can protect against cardiovascular diseases, and contains anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties.

(Vocus) March 24, 2010 -- Universities in Italy, in conjunction with a team of doctors in the United States, have some health news that’s whetting the appetite of foodies around the world. An ongoing, long-term study found that Pecorino Romano cheese is not only tasty, but it has health benefits, too. Pecorino Romano cheese, made from sheep's milk, is high in healthy fats essential to a nutritious diet.

Results of six-year study confirm that Pecorino cheese contains high amounts of omega-3 and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), unsaturated fatty acids naturally found in certain food groups that have proven to be very healthy for humans. The study suggests omega-3’s are beneficial in preventing cardiovascular diseases, improving immune function, reducing inflammation, improving vision and learning, and slowing down mental deterioration. Anti-oxidant and cancer fighting properties are among the health benefits attributed to CLA, which has also shown to prevent arteriosclerosis, is beneficial in improving bone formation and reducing body fat, suppressing diabetes, preserving muscle tissue and stimulating immune function.

Usually, Pecorino Romano cheese presents 3-5 times higher CLA compared to cow’s cheeses. Additionally, Pecorino contains a good amount of calcium, potassium, and magnesium and is a good source of protein. Although it has a significant amount of fat like most cheeses, many people like to use it because only small amounts are needed to provide a dynamic taste to their foods.

Here’s the rest of the skinny:
Heart healthy: Compared to a host of other diary products (fresh milk, ricotta, butter, parmesan cheese and more), Pecorino wins when it comes to Omega 3s, which have been associated with a lower risk of heart disease in women.

Lactose-free: Pecorino Romano is low in lactose which means lactose-sensitive dairy lovers can indulge with the rest of us.

Weight control: A daily intake of Pecorino cheese (90 grams) might help lower your BMI, thanks to its high-levels of CLA.

Pecorino Romano is a great substitute for that other Italian cheese. Try it with pastas, vegetables or as a garnish with soups or fresh greens. To learn more and find recipe ideas, visit: www.tasteandhealth.info or www.pecorinoromanocheese.it.
