Los Angeles-based good culture introduced a new line of organic cottage cheese products, available in Strawberry Chia, Blueberry Açaí Chia, Sundried Tomato and Kalamata Olive varieties.
“We were tired of searching for great-tasting cottage cheese that wasn’t loaded with thickeners, stabilizers, hormones and high-fructose corn syrup sweetened flavors, so we decided to make our own,” says Jesse Merrill, co-founder. “Grandma’s cottage cheese/pineapple combo just wasn’t cutting it.”
“Cottage cheese is filled with nutrition and loaded with protein,” says Anders Eisner, co-founder. “It has more protein than most Greek yogurts on the market, and it tastes delicious.”
In order to “fix” cottage cheese, this new line delivers 16-18 grams per 5.3-ounce serving, is certified organic, contains non-GMO ingredients and probiotics and uses grass-fed milk from respected cows on sustainable family farms in Wisconsin.
And, good culture partnered with 1% for the Planet, Burlington, Vt., to support food transparency. This means, each time a consumer purchases a cup of good culture, 1% of the sale goes to a global network of non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting the environment.
“Responsible farming practices and food transparency should be the standard,” Merrill says. “People deserve to know where their food comes from and how it got to their plate.”
This line of flavored cottage cheese is sold in convenient, on-the-go 5.3-ounce packs.
