Review: Hüttenkwark (cottage cheese with quark). The pros and cons!

  1. In the category â € ˜fat dairy productsâ € ™ there is again something new in the supermarket: cottage cheese. As the name says: a combination of cottage cheese and cottage cheese. Now those two products are both favorites with athletes and dieters â € “so what about cottage cheese?

  1. In this review we take a critical look at this innovation. What's in the product, what's the nutritional benefits, and, of course, how healthy is it? You can read it below.

What is cottage cheese?

  1. Hüttenkwark is, as the name suggests, a combination of cottage cheese and hüttenkäse. Think low-fat quark, but with the firm structure of hüttenkäse. The taste is a bit milder than that of quark, which can sometimes be a bit sour. Thanks to the hüttenkäse, the product is also nice and fresh.

  1. Cottage cheese seems to be mainly intended for breakfast. You can then use it to replace your regular container of yogurt or cottage cheese. Danone itself provides a number of recipes on its website: the product is mainly combined with fruit, granola and honey. A typical breakfast product!

Ingredients cottage cheese

  1. Hütten quark is available in two variations, natural and vanilla. We always become a bit suspicious of flavors, because they are often used as an excuse to add all kinds of junk to a product. However, this is not so bad!

  1. The natural cottage cheese contains skimmed milk, cream, salt, milk ferments and rennet. An excellent list of ingredients, without nonsensical additions. The vanilla variety contains the same, with a natural aroma. No added sugar! Indeed the vanilla is not very sweet, and it has a nice mild vanilla flavor.

Nutritional value of cottage cheese

  1. Then: the nutritional value. You may wonder why you would use cottage cheese instead of your usual box of cottage cheese. The nutritional values ​​give a reason for that! Hüttenkäse is a lot more protein than quark. This combination provides more protein than quark or yoghurt.

  1. Per 100 grams ordinary low-fat quark contains about 8.5 g proteins. With the cottage cheese this is 11 g. However, cottage cheese also contains slightly more fat than low-fat quark (2 g versus 0.2 g). The number of calories per 100 grams is therefore slightly higher: 80 g versus about 50 g.

  1. A small catch: the packaging of the cottage cheese says in large terms “16 grams of protein”. This is not per 100 grams, but per 150 grams (the standard portion size according to Danone). So keep this in mind when you compare the product with other alternatives!

Price cottage cheese

  1. So far there is actually mainly positive news for this new product. Are there no downsides at all? Well, a little one: the price. For 450 grams of cottage cheese you pay €2.29 at the Albert Heijn (both for natural and vanilla).

  1. That may not seem very extreme, but it is interesting to compare it with quark and cottage cheese itself. For 500 grams of low-fat quark you pay, also at the Albert Heijn, €0.95. 200 grams of hüttenkäse will cost you €0.55. Those are the prices of the private label, but those are just fine products here.

So: what do we think of cottage cheese?

  1. All in all, is cottage cheese a valuable new addition to the dairy shelf? It is certainly something new, and it has real advantages over the familiar low-fat cottage cheese, too. The only downside is that you also pay a lot for the nice idea and the beautiful packaging.

  1. At we have not yet tried to mix some quark with hüttenkäse ourselves, but there is a good chance that this is also a good idea. That saves you more than half the costs, and provides the same benefits in terms of taste and nutritional value!
