Buffalos are mainly bred in Southern Italy. Compared to cow milk, buffalo milk has a higher concentration of protein and fat content, giving a rich and creamy texture to the cheese produced from it. Buffalo cheese is rare, as it is difficult to breed and the amount of milk is sparse.
A common method of making cheese in Southern Italy, this type of cheese is made by plasticizing and kneading the fresh curd in hot water. As you can see from the words pasta (dough) and filata (fibrous), the dough is fibrous and elastic, and has a taste of fresh milk.
