DŽIUGAS® hard cheese consists of only four ingredients: Highest-quality free-range cow milk, yeast, enzymes of non-animal origin and salt.
One 4 kg wheel of aged Džiugas® needs about 60 litres of milk. The colour of Džiugas® cheese is natural – the way nature wanted it. The milk is collected from well-groomed, healthy cows that freely graze in the nature. The cheese, produced during the spring graze has a brighter yellow shade, while produced at the end of summer – darker.
Eating cheese is not a problem even if you can't drink milk. DŽIUGAS® cheese, stored at unique premises loses all trace of lactose.
This cheese is produced using only enzymes of non-animal origin
DŽIUGAS® cheese contains no additives or food colourings. The flavour – like the colour – is a natural gift from nature.
RICH WITH CALCIUM
Džiugas® cheese is rich with calcium (1077mg/100g) and phosphorus (700mg/100g). These minerals are particularly important for maintaining your bones and teeth in good condition.
RICH WITH PROTEIN
100 g of Džiugas cheese contains 33 g of protein. This is a high biological value protein, since it contains essential amino acids, as much as 50 per cent of which are irreplaceable. Protein is crucial for the majority of the body functions – this is the construction material for our muscles and particularly important to the stability of the immune system.
DŽIUGAS® ripens surrounded by music. The premises, where the cheese is ripened, silently echo with the symphonies of the famous Lithuanian composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis and other pieces of classical music. That is why it not only has a unique flavour, but also... a SOUL.
MAKING SMILES BEAUTIFUL
Due to the abundance of calcium and phosphorus, as you nibble on your favourite bites of DŽIUGAS® cheese, it creates a pH balance in your mouth, protecting your teeth from decay. Some say that the effect is similar to that of a toothpaste!
