Is Cottage Cheese Good For You?

Cottage cheese is popular for healthy eating because it’s high in protein and low in calories. Cottage cheese is also helpful to ensure you feel full. While this food does have some nutrients and vitamins in it, it’s not the only thing you should rely on to get all of the day’s nutrients. 

How Is Cottage Cheese Made?

Many people might think that cottage cheese takes a long time to make, but really it doesn’t. Cottage cheese is made by adding acid to pasteurized milk. This acid causes a separation in the milk solids from the whey. After this, it’s cut into pieces and then the whey will drain from the curds. This is how cottage cheese is made and it’s not rocket science.
