You Can Eat This New Cottage Cheese Even if You’re Lactose Intolerant
Whether it’s milk, yogurt, kefir, sour cream, or cheese, lactose intolerant folks who love their dairy products no longer have a hard time shopping for these treats thanks to innovative new products such as nut-based milk and dairy-free yogurts. Now, Green Valley Creamery just stepped up its game and added a new high-protein, lactose-free cottage cheese to its line of delectable offerings.
“We are proud to introduce another real dairy product to serve the estimated 30-50 million Americans who are lactose-intolerant or lactose-sensitive. We strive to bring the joy of real dairy back into people’s lives, and our organic, lactose-free cottage cheese is another positive step in that direction,” Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Rich Martin, said.
What about the Cottage Cheese’s Nutritional Profile and Ingredients?
The brand’s whole milk (4 percent milk fat) cottage cheese is the only certified organic, lactose-free, and FODMAP-friendly cottage cheese in the U.S., and is made with just a few wholesome ingredients including organic milk and cream, Celtic sea salt, lactase enzyme, and probiotics. One half-cup serving boasts 110 calories, 6 grams of fat (4 grams saturated fat), 410 milligrams of sodium, 3 grams of carbs (0 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar), and 12 grams of protein.
Try adding this creamy, keto-friendly topping onto celery or carrot sticks, mixing it into whole-grain pancake batter, and dolloping it onto sandwiches instead of mayo for a metabolism-igniting protein boost. You can even enjoy it on its own or sprinkle in slivered almonds, chia seeds, and unsweetened coconut for a sweet treat or go the savory side and stir in sun-dried tomatoes and basil for a pizza-like indulgence. However, we recommend sticking to just one serving size as the sodium content is a bit high.
As of now, Green Valley’s lactose-free cottage cheese is available at New Seasons Market on the West Coast, Roundy’s and Mariano’s in the Midwest, MOM’s Organic Markets in the Northeast, as well as other natural food stores and co-ops throughout the U.S.
