Flor de Guía or Queso de Guía is a cheese with Protected Designation of Origin since 2010, mainly linked to the northwest of Gran Canaria, Galdar, Moya and Santa María de Guía. This cheese is made by hand, mainly with Canarian sheep's milk, although it can also be mixed with cow's and goat's milk as long as there is at least 60% sheep's milk from the island.
It has a loose, yellowish rind and a creamy interior with a powerful and slightly bitter taste. This is the only cheese in the Canary Islands that uses a vegetable coagulant, the thistle flower, to coagulate the milk.
