Taleggio is a source of energy, is rich in protein, mineral salts and vitamins A and B2.
Taleggio has an average fat content compared to other cheeses. It contains a well-balanced range of fats. The ratio of calcium to phosphorous means that the intestine can easily absorb the calcium from the cheese and that it strengthens bones.
The ratio of calcium to phosphorous is 1.32, which is excellent as the ideal level should be between 0.5 and 2. Taleggio is easy to digest thanks to the way the mould on the rind interacts with the protein in the body of the cheese.
This means that the longer the cheese is aged, the easier it is to digest. Taleggio is a natural product: no additives are allowed to be used during its production, especially during the ageing process.
