Cottage Cheese Has Protein

Consumer demand for cottage cheese has increased in the past two or three years because its protein value has been realized. It has been found pound for pound cottage cheese—also known as Dutch cheese or smearcase—contains as much protein as beef, veal, lamb or poultry. And it contains more mineral matter than beef and as much energy.

A pound of this delicacy provides as much protein as a dozen eggs. One drawback is that some people have to cultivate a taste for it. But improved methods of preparation have improved the quality of commercial smearcase. This is probably another reason for its increased popularity.—Pathfinder.
