From Turrrrrra: Is it still okay to eat regular cottage cheese? The skin kind upsets my stomach VERY badly and I think I was okay with the low-fat..
Regular (4% fat) cottage cheese is STILL far fewer calories than the same amount of Skim RICCOTTA. It's about 120 calories for quarter tub...4 ounces.
Lower fat (2% fat)will pare off some more calories for about 102 per 4 ounces.
Non-fat is down to 80 calories.
Since the caloric difference isn't large, eat whichever tastes best and agrees with you.
My taste favorite is AXELROD CREAMED COTTAGE CHEESE...It's the full 120 caloires per half cup but is creamy and delicious with no hint of sour. It is also on sale at my supermarkets.
