Ricotta Cheese

Ricotta Cheese

Europa Fresh Natural Ricotta Cheese is a smooth textured Italian style white cheese with a creamy bland flavour. It’s relatively low fat content makes it ideal for use in low fat recipes, and its creamy texture makes it suitable for many Italian dishes.

Europa Fresh Natural Ricotta Cheese  is manufactured using whey produced from Hard Cheese Production.  A small amount of milk product  is added to the whey, which is then heat coagulated by direct steam injection to above 90°C.  The proteins coalesce, rise to the surface and are collected, then drained, packed and immediately cooled.
