Romano cheese is a very hard cheese, yellow in color, originating from Italy. There are numerous varieties which can be made from either cow’s, sheep’s or goat’s milk. Arguably the most well know is Pecorino Romano made from sheep's milk, whilst Vacchino and Caprino are made from cow's and goat's milk respectively.

Romano cheese is high in fat, approx. 27g per 100g, but also very high in sodium (hence its very salty taste).

If you are on a weight loss diet, you should probably completely avoid, or just have a few small shavings. It does though provide a very good source of protein and calcium as the milk content is very high. It also has a good source of vitamins A, B1-B3, B5, B6, B12, D, E, K, phosphorus and selenium.

It is very good for building healthy bones and teeth. Other Romano cheese benefits are thought to include added protection against cardiovascular disease given the high conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) content. Studies of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) have shown that it helps with weight loss.
