Kalona SuperNatural™ offers organic, minimally-processed, non-homogenized whole milk and reduced fat 2% cottage cheese. As the name suggests, cottage cheese was first made in the kitchens of country cottages using only the simplest ingredients such as non-homogenized milk, cream, and cultures. We are proud to follow this timeless tradition, and, as a result, our cottage cheese has a distinctively pure texture and full cheese flavor.
We start with organic milk from grass-fed cows on sustainable family farms. Once the milk is HTST pasteurized, enzymes are added to start the curd-making process. Over four to five hours, the curds continue to form inside the cheese vat.
Upon completion, the whey is removed and transported to a nearby processing facility where it is dried and converted to protein powder for use in other products. Then, the curds are cut, cooled, and moved to a new vat where the cottage cheese dressing is added.
Our cottage cheese dressing is a blend of nonfat milk, cream, and Celtic Sea Salt ®, an unprocessed whole salt that is hand-harvested on the Brittany coast of France. These salt farmers, in fact, have much in common with the dairy farmers who produce our milk: they provide food in its most natural state by using traditional farming methods that sustain the region’s environmental integrity.
Kalona SuperNatural™ cottage cheese is non-homogenized so you will find a fresh, cream top. All you have to do is stir and enjoy!
