Hungarian Curd Cheese Gets TSG Designation From European Commission
“Rögös túró”, a traditional curd 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.
