parmesan English (and French) name for the hard Italian cheese parmigiana reggiano. Made from semi‐skimmed cow's milk cooked with rennet, and dried for six months. When at least 2 years old it is called vecchio; stravecchio is 3 years old; stravecchione, 4 years old. It is hard and usually served on dishes grated; it cooks without becoming sticky. A 25‐g portion is a rich source of calcium, a good source of protein, a source of vitamin A and niacin, contains 8 g of fat and 250 mg of sodium, and supplies 110 kcal (460 kJ).
