Fresh Anthotyros or Anthotyro Fresco is dry, white, soft or medium-hard cheese. It has a sweet, creamy taste with no rind or salt. It is a traditional Greek cheese prepared by adding whey in unpasteurised sheep's and goat's milk or mixtures. Due to its fresh and soft texture, it can be eaten with honey and fruit at breakfast. A ladotyri of Anthotyros cubes packed in olive oil is also an excellent way to get a flavour of the cheese. The cheese ripens between 3-4 days and is an ideal cheese for those following a low-fat diet. It is available in cone or ball shapes.
