Tastes good. Only downside is the sodium IMO.
But really good to take 1 cup before bed. There's plenty of casein in there as well!

Yep, definitely worth it before bed as it is full of casien to help minimize catabolism during sleep. Doesn't taste bad, at least I don't think so.

There is no taste to compare it to. It is an acquired taste, but it does not taste bad. Start with small curds then work your way to large curds if you choose. I mix mine with raisens and honey or just honey.

How much Casein protein are we talking here for a standard serving? 1 cup or so contains what amount of casein? Thanks for the responses guys!

dean ff low sodium cottage cheese, comes in a pink container. Great for a quick lunch, each tub is 50g of protein, or there abouts.

15g per 1/2cup roughly, depends on brand.
Texture is unique; sour cream totally filled with little cheese curds? Mix in some cinnamon, splenda, berries, good snack. I always go FF so I can take some coconut oil as my fats (instead of the ones from the cheese)

I am not big on the taste so my recent cure has been to mix it with sugar free Jello. Works great for me, I always try to get in a cup b4 bed.

I honestly can't stand the taste....since the only time I eat it is before bed, I spring for the lowfat.
Yeah, the high sodium is a drag, but the low or sodium free are nasty.

I just recently started eating it in the last year. Now once you get past the mental issue of eating spoiled milk..blech! It really tastes better than I expected. Its much easier to eat then some of the foods I've been forced to try.
Now someday I have to convince myself to try yogurt.

I used it once and saw no benefit.. but that was most likely because I only used it for 3-4 weeks.
Actualy tastes kind of good when you mix pepper on it.

I love cottage cheese as a source of caseine before bed, and it tastes good with almost anything mixed in with it. It provides a good alternative to a casein shake.

I really want to try it with the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and splenda. If I like it, then I will start using it a few nights a week.

I think it's great with some sweetener and chocolate whey. Choc caramel pecan muscle milk is amazing with that stuff!

ive never gone 1 night for at least 2 years without a cup of cottage cheese before bed... that and a couple spoons of peanut butter

i prefer the regular small curd. it's good fat, and high in slow releasing protein. cottage cheese is some good stuff!
