    Post cottage cheese brands

    i see so many threads in this forum stating, "i can't stomach cottage cheese", or "please help me figure out how to eat this". i can't help thinking that maybe it's all attributable to the brand and the way it is made. for example, i adore vermont-style cottage cheese, but some people find it way too watery. so, i've decided that i want to start a list of what cottage cheese brands are like. please add to this thread any brands you have tried and are able to compare!

    breakstones cottage cheese
    4% - very creamy, almost dessert-like. a bit too rich if you're used to lower fat cottage cheese.
    2% fat - creamy texture, sweeter than most brands. lower in protein (11g per half cup).
    0% fat - much sweeter due to added sugar. not the best macro breakdown (8g carbs per half cup)

    friendship california-style cottage cheese
    2% large curd - not a big difference between the lower fat, but if you are looking for large curd, this has the best macros.
    1% fat - BEST macros i have found (16g protein, 4g carbs, 1g fat per half cup). a bit drier than most brands
    1% whipped - great for replacing ricotta in recipes or for those who find an aversion to the curds. same macros
    1% no salt - actually pretty difficult to stomach. a sodium sacrifice that i don't find to be worth it.

    cabot vermont-style cottage cheese
    0% fat - lowest in calories because it is the most watery (70cals per half cup).

    horizon organic cottage cheese
    2% fat - goes bad way too quickly! also watery, but a fair sacrifice if you want to buy organic

    store brand cottage cheese
    1% - generally speaking, store brands are not as good. this applies especially with wal-mart and winn dixie. i can stomach albertsons and publix, but i definitely prefer buying name brands.

    Dean and Kemps-both about the same. Watery with firm curds-Breakstones is far superior.

    I go Deans all the way. 4% is delicious, rich and fairly thick. Plus they sell the big tubs so they last. My 2 yr old is a big fan as well if that tells you anything.

    I love friendship cottage cheese. To me it has the most mild acidity with the greatest texture. If you really get grossed out by the liquidy stuff than this is the ideal brand. You make a good point with the no sodium variety though. It's amazing what kind of taste difference that brings.

    I used Nordica 1% Cottage Cheese. All the groceries store around here carry that one brand only for some reason besides Walmart which carry Diaryland. We don't have much selection here in Canada

    Dry curd cottage cheese usually has about .5 g of fat and 15 grams of sodium. But you usually don't eat this by itself-you use it in recipes.
