Since the 2015 season, the guarantee of a true žinčica is the trademark Žinčica Salašnícka. Based on an application of the Guild of Producers of Sheep Cheese in Turiec, it was inscribed on the list of trademarks at the Industrial Property Office in Banská Bystrica on December 4, 2014.

Consumers tend to drink milk products regularly not just because of its specific taste but also due to its positive health effects.
