So, what is leite de ovelha?

Leite de ovelha, also known as sheep's milk, is a rich and creamy dairy product with a slightly tangy taste. It is a great alternative to cow's milk for those who are lactose intolerant, as it contains less lactose and is easier to digest. Sheep's milk is also higher in protein and calcium than cow's milk, making it a nutritious choice. This ingredient is commonly used in traditional European cheeses such as Roquefort, Manchego, and Pecorino Romano, giving them their distinctive flavors. In addition to cheese-making, leite de ovelha can also be enjoyed on its own, or used in recipes such as creamy pasta sauces or decadent desserts.
