Anthotyros Dry

Anthotyros Dry is an exceptional Cretan Cheese. It is the dry version of sweet Mizithra. The main reason of its creation was the production of a slightly saltier cheese which could be grated.

Kalogeraki's Anthotiros Dry is made from sheep & goat milk and whey as sweet mizithra. The only difference is that right after its production, it is left to dry in specially fitted ripening rooms for some weeks. It is considered a high quality kind of cheese which also belongs to the family of whey cheeses. It has become very popular because of its use in Cretan weddings whose traditional food includes juicy spaghetti boiled in the broth of local meat and coated with a large amount of Anthotyros dry.

Texture and Color: It is a semi-hard white cheese with a rough surface covered with rind.

Taste: It has a pronounced brackish, buttery taste.

“Key to success”: The constantly excellent quality and taste of our milk which comes from livestock grazing in mountain and foothill areas of Crete, an island blessed with rich flora.

The production process of all our products is certified according to ISO 22000:2018 quality assurance system and that of IFS standard (International Food Safety).
