Why is it so?

Manchego is a complex dairy product which concentrates the excellent nutritional values of the sheep’s milk that makes it up. This means it’s got plenty of protein and no carbs – good for building muscles – and a great amount of calcium and vitamin A – good for building bone strength. On the down side, there’s a lot of saturated fat, so you might need to go for a run after a big Manchego session to burn some of it off…
