Panela is a smooth, white, fresh cheese with a fine, semi-soft texture.  It will not melt when heated, making it ideal for grilling.  The light and fresh flavor, with a touch of salt, pairs well with stronger flavors.

Panela gets its name for the “canastas de pan”, or bread baskets, in which it is traditionally drained and pressed.  Today, our Panela can be recognized by its beautiful traditional “basket weave” appearance.
