I just have a quick question regarding the watery liquid that rises to the top of a tub of cottage cheese. Would it be wise to drain this liquid, or does it contain a significant amount of protein?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

It doesn't contain protein, but it will keep your cc moist, so I recommend just stirring it back in.

I would stir it back in so the CC doesn't dry out unless you eat it all in 1-2 days. I doubt it contains much protein though. However cottage cheese is cheap. Try it out and let us know.

That would be the whey, it does contain protein, and you should mix it all together. Just ask little Miss Muffet.

Since when? It doesn't seem likely, though I admit I could be wrong.

Since they started making it I guess. Cottage cheese is made from milk, milk contains casein and whey. Hard to believe that nobody has heard of curds and whey.

Cottage cheese is almost entirely casein.. anyways, it wouldn't make much of a difference to the protein either way (there is like 2 tbsp of water in there). I'm pretty sure they add water to keep it moist, if someone has a container of cc check it.

Yes it's casein because the whey is drained off, but some remains and separates out when stood. The same way I can drain the whey from yogurt but when the remaining strained yogurt is left in the fridge, a small amount of liquid whey will appear on the surface.

As you say though, it's negligible :)

I think, depending on the brand, that's where the bacteria (the good kind) are, but I'm not sure.

I always drain it out and put it with my pasta for dinners.

absolute fact. the liquid is whey and it is a different kind of protein then is found in the curds. curds are Casein which is slow releasing relative to Whey protein.
