Cottage cheese is soft, white, and creamy. It's considered a fresh cheese, and does not undergo an aging or ripening process to develop flavor. It has a very mild flavor compared with aged cheeses.
Cottage cheese is made from the curds of various levels of pasteurized cow's milk, including nonfat, reduced fat, or regular milk. It's also offered in different curd sizes, usually small, medium, or large.
Cottage cheese is an excellent source of calcium, a mineral that plays a major role in tooth and bone health, and in the prevention of osteoporosis. It also helps you to regulate your blood pressure.
