Not every person knows that cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein with relatively few calories. It contains vitamins B1, B3 and B6, as well as vitamin A, zinc, magnesium, potassium, copper, iron, and calcium.
Cottage cheese can help you maintain weight due to its high protein and low-calorie content. Also, the consumption of cottage cheese can help to gain muscle mass when combined with training due to its high protein content.
This is because cottage cheese is packed with casein, which is a slowly absorbed protein that effectively promotes increasing of muscle mass.
Keep in mind that cottage cheese tends to have more carbs than regular cheese because it’s made with milk. So if you’re eating it on the keto diet, we recommend limiting your portion sizes to keep the carbs and sugar down.
