Artisa is all-natural made with real fruit free of high fructose corn syrup. The curd and creamy texture mix well with fruit and the convenient 5.3 oz. size make it perfect for on-the-go snacking.

Yes! Artisa cottage cheese is all natural, packed with protein and low in fat. Our cottage cheese contains more protein than any other single-serves on the market – even more than Green yogurt! Cottage cheese is also a good source of several essential nutrients, such as calcium, zinc, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and vitamin A. Artisa cottage cheese is a great selection for a healthy snack or side.

Cottage cheese is made by curdling milk and draining most of the whey. After the curd is formed, it is cut into pieces to allow the whey to drain. The curds are then cooked and pressed to drain additional whey. Finally, they are washed with cool water, which lowers the acidity.

There are two main types of cottage cheese, large and small curd. Large curd cottage cheese uses rennet, an enzyme that speeds up the curdling time by helping to separate milk. Small curd cottage cheese does not use rennet.

Yes, Artisa is much higher in protein and lower in sugar.  Greek yogurt is generally 11 to 12 grams of protein and 15 grams of sugar.  Artisa is 15 grams (flavors vary) of protein and only 8 grams of sugar per serving.

Generally, curds are available in small or large sizes.  Small curd is the most popular size.  Artisa is a fine curd, about 50% smaller than standard small curd.

There are also different styles of cheese depending on the amount of dressing.  For example,  California and Michigan style are drier products, while Vermont style contains higher amounts of dressing and is more moist.  Artisa is a creamy artisan-style cottage cheese.

Cottage cheese still is safe to eat up to two weeks past the “sell by” date on the package, provided the seal hasn’t been broken. Like many perishable foods, your cottage cheese is good for up to two weeks after it is opened, if it is refrigerated.

Yes, definitely. Unlike other soft cheeses that your doctor may tell you to avoid, cottage cheese is made with pasteurized milk, making it a safe option to choose. Plus, since it is high in protein and low in fat, Artisa cottage cheese is a great, healthy choice!

That’s not recommended, as cottage cheese is likely to lose its creamy texture upon thawing.

The juices flow into the cheese, but the bulk of the fruit remains on the bottom.  Once the product is placed upright, all juices settle back to the bottom of the product.

What we now call cottage cheese is believed to be a descendent of the “curds and whey” we all know from the centuries-old nursery rhyme. So pull up a tuffet and enjoy! (Spiders not included.)
