Canarian cheeses are known for their great variety of flavors and textures. This is due to the fact that each island of the archipelago is known for producing one or more specific types of cheese. Discover them with CanarianMarket!
Canarian cheese Flor de Guía
Flor de Guía cheese is one of the most precious jewels of the Canary Islands. It is produced exclusively in three localities of the island of Gran Canaria: Santa María de Guía, Moya and Galdar.
It is made mainly from Canarian sheep's milk and is characterized by its round shape and natural yellow rind. Even so, the main aspect that distinguishes Flor de Guía cheese from the rest of the varieties is the curdling process. The reason is that the dried flowers of the thistles that grow on the island are used to curdle the milk.
In our online store you can find Media Flor Cheese, made with cow's, goat's and sheep's milk, with 50% of the rennet coming from dried flowers. With a mild and aromatic flavor and a creamy texture that melts on the palate.
