Its what goes into, or should we say, doesnt go into Farmers All Natural Creamery organic cottage cheese that makes it authentic. When you read most ingredient labels today for cottage cheese you see a long list of words that you cant pronounce or have no idea what they are guar gum, xantham gum, locust bean gum, etc. These things are added to speed the process for making cottage cheese, create uniform textures, and/or extend shelf life. These practices are so universal one might think these ingredients constitute authentic cottage cheese. Not so. Cottage cheese is yet another food that industrialization altered from its original quality. Just as its name suggests, cottage cheese was first made in the kitchens of country cottages where staple ingredients non homogenized milk, cream, and cultures were used to slowly make the simple cheese that came to be known as cottage cheese. We persist in practicing that original method by using just non homogenized milk, cream, salt, and cultures to make Farmers All Natural Creamery organic cottage cheese. These basic ingredients give our cottage cheese such pure texture and full cheese flavor that you will realize the slippery, pasty textures and bland flavors the industrialized food movement brought to cottage cheese. Your first experience of trying Farmers All Natural Creamery organic cottage cheese will make it your favorite.
