Fascinating facts about this whey protein cheese!

Presented by our GOLDSTEIG cheese master

This cheese keeps you fit

Ricotta is a whey protein cheese

Ricotta Frau Fitness

This Italian whey protein cheese is one of the types of cheeses with less fat. The cheesemakers don’t just produce ricotta out of milk but out of whey which is why it has a low fat content and is also extremely rich in nutrients. It contains high-quality protein and calcium. As a result, 100 grams of GOLDSTEIG Ricotta, have just 181 calories and 14 grams of fat. It is therefore perfect for anyone who is watching their figure but doesn’t want to compromise on flavour nevertheless.

Shove it into the oven!

Ricotta baked in the oven is a real treat

Even the ancient Romans appreciated ricotta,goes really well with this. According to a legend, a shepherd is supposed to have invented it by chance. He wanted to make a different type of cheese but accidentally heated up the whey again resulting in this delicious whey protein cheese.

In Italy, ricotta is often still baked in the oven today until it has a crispy crust. Have a go at making “ricotta al forna” yourself. Put approx. 2 kg in an oven dish and bake in a fan oven at roughly 150°C until the ricotta has a dark brown crust. You can then enjoy the cheese with bread or vegetables.

Cooked cheese

“Ricotta” means “cooked twice” and indicates how it’s made

Ricotta Mädchen

The popular whey protein cheese has the Latin word “recota” to thank for its name, which more or less means “cooked twice or recooked.” Normally, the valuable whey that contains protein is left over in cheese making. Reheating it again produces this cheese speciality.

A real multi talent

Ricotta is very versatile to use

The mild whey protein cheese is a real all-rounder and often used for sweet desserts but also for savoury sauces or fillings. You can use it like cream cheese at the same time.

It is particularly ideal for making Italian pasta and filling cannelloni or ravioli as well as for refining lasagne. This cheese also makes tarts and cakes really luscious. As whey protein cheese it can also be used wonderfully as sandwich spread. A light treat with fresh herbs and spices!
