Why is there SO MUCH SODIUM in Cottage Cheese?

Written by devjfl1 (jeff) on 4/28/2011 5:18 PM | COMMENTS (9)

quite frankly I am SHOCKED!

Does ANYBODY know of any brands that have LOW SODIUM?

Or is sodium actually necessary for making Cottage Cheese?

Or maybe I should just forget about Cottage Cheese?

    Cheese (all kinds) can be notoriously high in sodium. Something tells me that low sodium cottage cheese might taste yucky.

    Zig Ziglar said that not as a true statement he said it because in his mind that is what he saw. He used it as part of his power of persuasion over himself.

    Zig Ziglar said if you want to be thin avoid cottage cheese. The only people you see eating cottage cheese are fat.

    Do you have Whole Foods by you? I would think they'd have something to offer w/lower sodium. Maybe if the low sodium varieties taste bad, you can doctor it up w/some fake salt or some other seasoning or herb. I know, crush some fin crackers in it. lol

    Several brands make a low-sodium version. Breakstone's is a favorite of mine, but I am not sure if it's available in Calif. Cottage cheese is actually pretty easy to make, and you can control the salt. I'll post a recipe on your wall.

    I'm not sure if it's necessary, but that's the reason I stopped eating cottage cheese several months ago. All cheese is pretty high in sodium, so I've cut back on that too.

    Lucerne No Salt Added Cottage Cheese (45mg of sodium in a 1/2 cup)

    Most cheeses are high in sodium because rennett, which is used to curdle the milk, has added sodiium, plus most cheese makers add salt because they know people expect it. Lucerne brand cottage cheese is relatively low in sodium. It is stocked by Safeway stores. (I think they are Von's in your neck of the woods). Or, you can try making your own. Just look for a low sodium rennet.

    I don't think sodium is necessary to make cottage cheese but I have tried low sodium cottage cheese and it is AWFUL! You can't imagine how terrible it tastes- and I am not a picky eater, believe me! Now I just eat the regular version it in moderation when I feel like having it. I ate HOOD Low Sodium Cottage Cheese, but I believe that is a brand that's local to Boston so they may not have it where you live.
