This is a  traditional Greek cheese whose history goes back to the ancient times. The real, true mizithra is produced in Greece, which holds the copyright for the use of the name; in other countries, if a cheese is supposed to be called mizithra, there are very rigid regulations on where and how it is supposed to be made.

Similar to feta, mizithra cheese is a protected name, which means that only if a cheese is produced in a certain way and in a certain region can be named as mizithra. Mizithra from Crete which is famous among cheese lovers, is a completely protected version of mizithra
