Cottage Cheese Overview:
Cottage cheese is a cheese curd product. It is essentially unprocessed or raw cheese. Since it is drained rather than pressed, some whey remain and the individual curds remain loose. It is not aged or colored. Different types of cottage cheese are made from milks with different fat levels.
One cup of cottage cheese contains about 25 to 28 grams of protein (just as much as a 2 oz. chicken breast). It can be a great source of protein for ovolacto vegetarians...
