There are three types of Bryndza, each prepared differently thus giving the cheese a characteristic texture, taste and colour. Both Slovenská bryndza and Bryndza Podhalańska have been registered in the EU as a PDO cheese in 2008 and 2006, respectively. There is one more variety of Bryndza that contains only sheep’s milk and is called liptovská or ovčia bryndza.
