Traditional Hungarian Cottage Cheese ‘Rögös Túró’ Gets EU Designation

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.08.01.

“Rögös túró”, a traditional cottage cheese made in Hungary, has obtained the Traditional Specialties Guaranteed (TSG) label from the European Commission, the Dairy Products Council told MTI.

TSG products must have a traditional composition or be made according to traditional production methods; however, the designation does not impose any restrictions on the geographical origin of the product.

The Dairy Products Council noted that rögös túró is an essential component of a number of traditional Hungarian dishes such as crepes with curd, cheesecake, cheese dumplings and noodles with curd.
