How Is Cottage Cheese Made?
According to this article on All Recipes, “cottage cheese begins as milk”.
“Adding enzymes or live, active cultures (probiotics) converts milk sugars (lactose) into lactic acid. The lactic acid separates the curds (the milk solids, fats, and proteins) from the whey (the liquid). In this stage, the curds are basically a solid block of cheese. It’s up to a knife-like curd cutter to slice the cheese into bite-sized pieces. Whether the cottage cheese is small curd or large curd depends on the design of the curd cutter”.
How Much Cottage Cheese Should I Eat A Day?
It is advised to consume 3 low-fat or fat-free dairy servings per day.
To reach the recommended servings for the day, consider eating at least one serving of cottage cheese every day.
The other two servings can come from low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt.
