What to Know.

Pecorino Romano is the name of an Italian hard and cooked cheese, produced with fresh whole sheep’s milk, and awarded – since 1996 – with the DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) recognition. It has a fairly high caloric intake and, being part of the II fundamental group of foods, it is an excellent source of proteins with a high biological value, mineral salts and vitamins specific to milk and derivatives. It is known for its typically salty taste (the salt guarantees its long shelf life) and for its intense flavor; for these characteristics it is mainly used grated on pasta (mainly in southern Italy).


Pecorino Romano is different from Sardinian, Tuscan and Umbrian-Marches, less salty and mainly used as table cheeses; the Sicilian seasoned is more similar. The specification of the Pecorino Romano DOP limits the production area and the origin of the raw materials (milk, lactic ferments and lamb rennet) to the Lazio and Sardinia regions (we will understand better why later), as well as to the province of Grosseto. For over two millennia, pecorino romano has been part of the local gastronomic tradition, so much so that historians have defined it as one of the fundamental foods of the legionary diet in ancient Rome.

Pecorino Romano is a product that belongs to the II fundamental group of foods, therefore it is a significant source of essential amino acids, mineral salts and specific vitamins of this category. It has a high caloric intake, provided mainly by lipids, followed by peptides and finally by small amounts of carbohydrates. Fatty acids are mainly saturated, high biological value proteins and simple carbohydrates. It does not contain fibers; on the contrary, cholesterol is abundant. The most important mineral salts are sodium, calcium and phosphorus. The most important vitamins come from group B, in particular riboflavin (B2).


Pecorino Romano is a food that does not lend itself to the diet of overweight people and those suffering from common metabolic pathologies. Being rich in salt, therefore sodium, it should be avoided in case of primary sodium sensitive hypertension. In addition, the concentration of saturated fat and cholesterol makes it unsuitable for hypercholesterolemic nutrition. On the other hand, the richness in calcium and phosphorus makes it a product that, used wisely, helps to meet the mineral needs of growing children and people in old age (especially women in menopause). Whether or not its relevance in the diet for lactose intolerance depends on individual sensitivity.
