Panela

Panela, a white fresh and smooth cheese, has its roots from central Mexico. In Mexico, you’ll find the cheese some times molded in a basket and sold as queso de canasta or “basket cheese.”

Flavor Profile

Cacique® Panela is the mildest of our cheeses. A delectable, curd-style cheese made from Grade A, pasteurized, part-skim cow’s milk, rennet, and sea salt. Similar to Queso Fresco but slightly less crumbly, the texture is a cross between a firm ricotta.

How To Use

Panela slices and crumbles easily and is best enjoyed while still moist and fresh. Its creamy but slightly tangy flavor can be enjoyed with sweet berry compotes, traditional guava paste and as a crumbled topping to savory dishes.
