We take our cottage cheese taste pretty seriously around here. So far, only Breakstone's Live Active Cottage Cheese has received a decent rating, while Nancy's Cultured Cottage Cheese and South Beach Diet Low Fat Cottage Cheese Cups have been disappointing. How would Lactaid Cottage Cheese fare? The bright aqua of the container was visually appealing, and I loved the fat that it had some satiating fat (1%) while still only having 80 calories per serving.
So how does it taste? Excellent! This cottage cheese is creamy and rich, with more liquid than the Friendship Whipped Cottage Cheese that I tried recently (a definite bonus from my perspective). It has an amazing flavor - not overpowering but not bland.
Each 1/2 cup serving of Lactaid Cottage Cheese provides 80 calories, 1 gram of fat of which 0.5 grams is saturated fat (2% and 4% of the daily value), 380 mg of sodium (16% of the DV),12 grams of protein and 7 grams of carbohydrates which includes 3 grams of sugar (no fiber). There is also 10% of daily recommendations for calcium. The ingredient list includes the lactase enzyme (and just about every "gum" possible), but is otherwise unremarkable (a good thing).
A 16-ounce container cost $3.29, and although it is a little high in sodium, I thoroughly enjoyed this and this brand is going in the "will buy again" column.
