Brocciu or Broccio is a cheese from Corsica, France made with a mixture of goat's milk and raw sheep's milk. The name of this cheese comes from the word brousser which in Corsican has meaning "hit".


This is because the process of stirring is done in the making of the cheese. Fresh Brocciu cheese is known as Brocciue frais or Broccie sec or Brocciu passu. The milk used to make this cheese is sheep's milk in winter and goat milk in the summer.


Traditionally this cheese is made by using whey but now skim milk is commonly used. The Broccian cheese with the AOC emblem must come from Corsica and is produced in the Corse-du-Sud and Haute-Corse regions. This cheese is produced in four sizes, namely 1/2 pound, 1 pound, 2.2 pounds and 7 pounds. Fresh Brocciu cheese is known as Brocciue frais or Broccie sec or Brocciu passu.
