Free and peptide/protein bonded acids were qualitatively and quantitatively determined in parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano) cheese samples by HPLC. d/. l ratio was measured using a chiral derivatizing agent. The diffusion processes of free amino acids occurring in Parmigiano Reggiano hard cheese can be regarded and utilized as a characteristic molecular marker of its ripening.
