A friend went home to Germany recently and brought back some quark for me! (Thank you!)



Technically a spreadable cheese, however I use it as a yoghurt, i.e., grab a spoon and ship to mouth. The taste and texture are about halfway between a Greek-style yoghurt (henceforth known simply as “yoghurt”, since everything else is adulterated crap in my mind) and cream cheese, but also not quite cottage cheese. Actually, I suppose it is a cottage cheese of sorts, just smoother.

I have seen another brand with higher fat, but here is the breakdown for this particular tub, per 100g:
9,8g fat
9,3g protein
3,8g cho.

It is a dairy product, so the protein is mostly casein, which doesn’t seem to gel well with some people. Luckily I seem to be okay with it (phew).
