Plain French-Style Fresh Cheese is made from cow’s milk. It is often touted as an alternative to Greek yogurt, but you should know that its protein and calcium content is lower than that of most Greek yogurts on the market. On the other hand, it is an interesting alternative to other fattier cheeses (e.g., ricotta) or saltier cheeses (e.g., cottage cheese). It is also useful in cooking since it can be added to dips, sauces, muffins, and cakes, for example.

This French-style fresh cheese has a milder and less acidic taste than yogurt. It can be eaten with fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup as a dessert or as part of a breakfast.
