Yogurt Cheese is another of our lower calorie alternatives or skinny foods. The high fat content and calorie count in dairy products has made most cheeses off limits to anyone watching their calorie intake, but not anymore! Yogurt Cheese is the lower calorie and lower fat alternative you’ve been looking for. Yogurt Cheese is the creamy white cheese left over when liquid whey drains from the fresh yogurt. It is all natural and is a great way to supplement your diet with calcium and protein without adding fat. Yogurt Cheese is also low in sodium and lactose (milk sugar), but still tastes creamy and rich!
Yogurt Cheese takes on the flavor of whatever it is mixed with, so it can be enjoyed with your other favorite foods to dilute the fat content. We also offer Yogurt Cheese with Garlic and Herb, Yogurt Cheese with Jalapenos, and Yogurt Cheese with Vegetables.
