Nutritional values

With the cheese, the need for various vital substances can be wonderfully covered. In addition to casein (milk protein), minerals such as bone-strengthening calcium and wound-healing zinc are found in the creamy burrata.

Unfortunately, burrata is not always and everywhere available - buffalo mozzarella or cow's milk mozzarella are suitable substitutes.
