Nobody knows exactly what was the reason why this curious reddish cheese was created, although, most likely, it was due to a completely random fact since afuega’l pitu cheese is produced in the same tables as pork cured meats (chorizo and black pudding of the typical Asturian stews and pottages). Probably, unintentionally, a part of the rennet was stained with paprika and, since cheese was highly valuable and it could not be wasted for this reason, it continued its production process. As the result was good, what at the beginning happened by chance was done in a deliberated way subsequently. It is also important to take into account that paprika hides the strong acidity of the softest afuega’l pitu.

Pasteurized cow's milk, calcium chloride, ferments, rennet, salt and paprika.
