Bettelmatt: white gold of Ossola

The Bettelmatt is a cheese made exclusively in Bettelmatt, Kastel, Vannino, Sangiatto, Poiala, Forno and Toggia pastures, in the heart of the Ossola. These pastures are all above 1800 mts.

In these areas the vegetation is rich in grass, the "mattolina", which gives the Bettelmatt the yellowish color that characterizes it (once the cheese was also called Mottolina).
