Cottage cheese contains 24 grams of dairy protein per cup.

MORE FUEL FOR YOUR MORNING

Dairy is a high-quality protein that satiates without weighing you down due to its digestibility, bioavailability and protein content that your body can absorb fast.1

Dairy milk contains two types of protein: whey (20%) and casein (80%). Both are high-quality proteins, according to nutritional rating scales, and both contain all essential amino acids to support the multiple roles of protein in the body.2 Dairy is also an excellent source of essential nutrients your body needs including Vitamin D and calcium.
