Cottage cheese - healthy, fresh and high in protein

Cottage cheese has been a staple on our shelves for many years, popular among consumers looking for healthy protein-rich, low fat dairy products. With the high demand for protein, cottage cheese has a growth potential on the fitness market.

Cottage cheese is a creamy, granular, fresh cheese with mild flavor. It has a benefit of working with both savoury and sweet flavours, so is versatile in the kitchen.

This cheese curd product is drained, but not pressed, so some whey remains and the individual curds remain loose. There is a variety of cottage cheese on the market, made from milk with different fat levels (from fat-free up to 5% milk fat) and in small-curd or large-curd preparations. Cottage cheese can be eaten as is, au naturel, with seasoning, salt and pepper or with fruits or salads. It’s especially popular among dieters and people keeping a healthy lifestyle for its high content of casein protein and low fat content.
