PAT - Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs


It is in the area of Cuneo that the native Piedmontese cattle breed has developed and evolved, once used for the production of milk, work and labor, and now bred above all for the production of top quality meat, suitable for the preparation of exquisite local dishes.
The redness of the meat, typical of cow breeds intended for the production of meat, is mainly due to its iron content and a significant quantity of antioxidant compounds, mostly associated with Vitamin E. Nevertheless, as far as the color of the meat is concerned, various factors are involved such as: age of the animal, what it feeds on and slaughtering conditions.
