The milk serum that results from the cheese production, with the addition of a percentage of whole milk, is brought to 80°C for 45 minutes, at which point the ricotta emerges to the surface. The texture is soft and creamy, milky white in color, a sweet flavor with no acidity, and with the typical dairy product aroma.
