So, what is caglio animale?

Caglio animale is an ingredient used in cheese making that is derived from the stomach of young calves. The stomach lining of the calf contains a natural enzyme called rennet, which is responsible for coagulating the milk and separating it into solid curds and liquid whey. Caglio animale is considered a traditional and authentic form of rennet and is favored by some cheese makers for its ability to produce a unique flavor and texture in cheese. However, it is not suitable for vegetarians and some people may have ethical concerns about its use in food production.
