Friendship 1% Lowfat Cottage Cheese Review

Friendship 1% Lowfat Cottage CheeseI'm a pretty huge fan of cottage cheese - it's a great source of protein and calcium, it tastes great, and it can be eaten sweet or salty. The only thing to watch for is the sodium content, but since the rest of my diet is relatively low in sodium and my family has no blood pressure issues, I figure a little cottage cheese every now and then won't hurt me. Lactaid Cottage Cheese is one of my favorites, but it's not available in 8 ounce containers. Friendship 1% Lowfat Cottage Cheese, however, is. I bought a small container at the grocery store for $1.99.

Friendship All Natural Digestive Health Cottage Cheese With Pro-active NutrientsCottage cheese is something I have pretty regularly. I usually go with Lactaid Cottage Cheese, but when I saw Friendship All Natural Digestive Health Cottage Cheese With Pro-active Nutrients in the grocery store, I was was really intrigued and so I picked up a tub for $3.99, more than I usually spend on cottage cheese, but I was hoping for the best.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 container (33 grams)
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 4%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 360 mg, 15%
Carbohydrates: 5 grams

I love the way most cottage cheese tastes, and this is no exception. It's thick but not too dry, like Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage Cheese - for me, just the right amount of liquid is crucial for a good cottage cheese. The curds are a good size (not too big, not too small), too. This also doesn't taste too salty, which is wonderful. It's great alone, and even better with sugar or Splenda and cinnamon if you're looking for a sweet treat. I've used this to make pancakes, and spreading a little on an egg/egg white omelet is divine.

Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage CheeseI've recently gotten back into cottage cheese for many reasons: the protein, the calcium, the portability, and the taste! When I came across Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage Cheese on sale for just $0.99 cents for a 16-ounce container at the grocery store, I couldn't believe it - and I couldn't resist. An added bonus was that this cottage cheese is supposed to be "spreadable" according to the label. I've heard that it can be used as a cream cheese substitute, but I was dubious. I opened the package to see how it would compare.

When I dug in, I found that the cream cheese was much drier than expected. I'm used to a creamy, somewhat more liquid-y cottage cheese, but this was definitely whipped and lighter. It could possibly double as a spread, but I'll stick to cream cheese for topping my bagels. As for the taste, this wasn't my favorite. Despite the hefty 15% of the daily value for sodium per serving, this tasted somewhat bland.
