Tried and Tasted: Sports Drinks

Jon and the WLR taste team find out which sports re-hydration drinks taste good... difficult.

Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is coming into its own with consumer demand for healthy foods. Cottage cheese provides high quality protein and is also a good source of riboflavin and calcium. Most of the major brands are bringing out low fat versions and their ranges are expanding.

Summary A lovely creamy tasty texture. Moist and delicate aftertaste. A pleasant texture and taste. Very palatable. A good natural version of cottage cheese. This brand looks good but our panel found it tasted a little dry and bland. An aftertaste of peppers was a little overpowering.

Conclusion

Our panel agreed the standard of the brands tasted was very good; there was no real loser. Cut up some carrots and cucumber and use it as a dip; try cottage cheese on top of a baked potato; use it in salads and sandwiches.
