Findings

  • One of our experts’ favourites is a prepacked parmesan nationally available in supermarkets.
  • Getting a wedge cut from the wheel should ensure quality cheese. But taste it first and know what to look for to get the best quality.

Please note: this information was current as of June 2007 but is still a useful guide to today's market.
