Pecorino Romano cheese, made from sheep's milk, is high in healthy fats essential to a nutritious diet. Pecorino cheese contains high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), unsaturated fatty acids naturally found in certain food groups that have proven to be very healthy.  Omega 3’s are beneficial in preventing cardiovascular diseases, improving immune function, reducing inflammation, improving vision and learning, and slowing down mental deterioration. Antioxidant 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. Pecorino Romano cheese has 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.
