Vegetarischer Käse

Vegetarian cheese

All the cheeses made by us are suitable for lacto-ovo-vegetarians and lacto-vegetarians due to the exclusive use of microbial rennet (no animal rennet). All the cheeses have been certified by the VEBU (Vegetarierbund Deutschland e. V.) and are therefore allowed to carry the V-Label (quality seal for vegetarian products).

Laktosegehalt < 1,5 %

Lactose content< 1.5%

We voluntarily state the lactose content of our GOLDSTEIG products on our cheese specialities’ packaging to provide better guidance for people with lactose intolerance.

The amount of lactose that actually causes discomfort varies greatly from individual to individual. Only very few people affected have to completely do without any dairy products that contain lactose.

The “No genetic engineering” seal is issued by the “Lebensmittel ohne Gentechnik e.V.” association. The aim is to support and promote the production of food with no genetic engineering and educate consumers.

Do you know what your daily protein requirements are? The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily supply of approx. 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. For a woman weighing 60 kilos this means 48 grams of protein per day. There are 23 grams of protein in one ball or pack of Protinella, this covers a good half of your daily protein requirement.

The body constituent protein

Nutrients are additional benefits

The demand for protein products continues unabated and consumers’ health awareness is increasing all the time; besides high quality and delicious flavour, they also want additional nutritional benefits. Protinella makes an important contribution to a balanced diet with its high protein and calcium and vitamin B2 and zinc content. 

By the way: the 100 g ball has just 121 kcal with approx. 75% of the total energy consisting of protein and just approx. 20% of fat. As a result, this cheese is not just the ideal energy supplier for athletes but also a perfect meal for anyone who is health and figure conscious.

Wonderfully full up?

Protinella is very filling

Proteine zum Überbacken.

Protinella ist auch zum Überbacken geeignet.

Schon gewusst? Protinella ist auch in der warmen Küche der ideale Käse mit viel Protein und wenig fett. Der Proteinkäse eignet sich zerkleinert oder gerieben auch zum Überbacken von Gemüse, Pizza, Pasta und vielen weiteren überbackenen Gerichten. Dafür den Käse einfach für circa 45 Minuten (Zeit kann variieren) in Frischhaltefolie gewickelt in das Gefrierfach legen und anschließend mit einer groben Handreibe reiben.

Noch einfacher geht es im Thermomix®. Dazu einfach den Käse aus dem Kühlschrank nehmen, das Wasser abgießen, die Kugel halbieren und diese 3 Sekunden / Stufe 5 zerkleinern.
