    ADVICE AND CURIOSITY

    The cottage cheese, despite being a dairy product, can not be defined but is simply classified as cheese dairy product: in fact is not obtained through the coagulation of casein, but the whey protein, that is, part of the liquid that separates from the curd during the cheesemaking.
