How to Eat and Store Cottage Cheese – A Nutritionist’s Comment

Nutritionist Tetiana Rozumovska says that semi-hard or hard cheeses can usually be stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks (if they are packaged). Cheese is a great way to strengthen teeth and satisfy hunger.

According to the doctor, one hundred grams of parmesan contains about 35 grams of protein and 23 grams of Gaudi. For comparison, there is half as much protein in cheese – 10-13 grams, and even in beef and lamb – 18-20 grams per hundred grams of the product.

“Protein is the main building block for the body. The first signs of its lack are swelling on the face and swelling of the legs, frequent colds, weakness, and fatigue. If you do not pay attention to these “bells and whistles,” the consequences can be more serious. An adult whose physical activity is not very high needs 45-55 grams of protein per day, so it is useful to include cottage cheese in the diet,” says Razumovskaya.

The nutritionist says that usually semi-hard or hard cheeses are stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks (if they are packaged), but there are varieties that last up to four months – Gouda, Dutch, Masdam, Russian. Parmesan has a shelf life of up to six months.

According to the nutritionist, soft cheeses, such as Camembert, should be eaten as soon as possible – in seven to ten days. But according to Razumovskaya, this can be handled by placing the cheese in the freezer (and thus storing the product for up to three months).
