If you have not guessed it yet (Champagne should have given it away...) it is their PDO (Product Designations of Origin) status. Yes, you cannot have feta that is made in France or Bulgaria; so what's that cheese you just purchased at the supermarket? White cheese! Although such white cheeses resemble feta, they are not quite the same thing. Feta is a signature Greek product. In order to choose the best and brightest versions of this delicacy, one must be wary of how to distinguish between real and fake Feta, and how to tell which ones are superior to others. Although countries such as Denmark, Germany, Bulgaria and France produce what they claim to be Feta, they actually produce it as a "feta cheese" (one that is in essence just a general variety of the brand and has no authenticity). In fact, many of those "feta cheeses" are made using cow's milk, which is not even an ingredient of authentic Feta, but explains why these variations of "Feta wanna be" products are lacking the creaminess and unique flavor of the real thing. To make matters more complicated in order to preserve the feta cheese for a long period of time, companies add salt to it. The result? Chaulky like texture with sour - salty flavor.
When choosing feta products for Flavorteaze we keep impostors out, and the majority of our feta is packaged in brine which acts as a natural preservative.
