Is Your Parmesan Cheese Fake? Italy’s New Microchip Tells You!
the real deal: 1. genuine and authentic; 2. very high quality
Cheese lovers, beware of fake parmesan! Italy is famous for its delicious Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, but some people sell fake versions! But now, the Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium in Italy has a smart solution: tiny microchips.
These microchips are the size of a grain of salt. They are edible but are placed in the hard skin of the cheese that people usually don’t eat. This microchip will authenticate the cheese as the real deal.
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese can only be made in certain parts of Italy. It also has to be made in a special way. Because of these rules, it’s often more expensive. But it tastes better!
1. My grandmother’s apple pie isn’t store-bought; it’s the real deal.
2. This handbag isn’t a cheap copy; it’s the real deal, made of genuine leather.
3. I’ve been to many coffee shops, but this one is the real deal with beans sourced directly from farmers.
