Abstract

Purpose

Cottage is a protein-rich food which is commonly consumed by people targeting weight reduction and athletes willing to eat whole-food instead of protein supplements. Yet out of common knowledge, the scientific community lacks solid evidences of the effect of the inclusion of cottage cheese in a diet. The purpose of this paper is to assess the evidences from scientific literature of the impact of inclusion of cottage cheese in a diet.

Design/methodology/approach

PubMed and Web of Science were searched for scientific literature dealing with “cottage cheese” and “diet.” There was no restriction regarding the type article type, date nor journal it is published in. References found to during the analysis of the articles extracted from database were also included. Studies search, screening and eligibility analysis were led in parallel by two independent reviewers.

Findings

This survey shows that cottage cheese is a good source of calcium (with 83 mg/100 g) – but not low fat cottage cheese because of its low vitamin S content (p < 0.001) –, a source of probiotic (1 serving providing the recommended dietary intake), a source of high quality proteins, reduces postprandial blood glucose level – healthy and type II diabetes subjects – (p < 0.05), is not linked to increased cardiovascular diseases nor cancer risks (p < 0.05).

Originality/value

Based on the findings reported in this review, the inclusion of cottage cheese in a diet can be advised for: women to build up calcium storage to fight osteoporosis; more generally calcium/vitamin D deficient subjects; athletes willing to increase their high-quality proteins intake through whole food consumption; dieters looking for low energy, high protein, high satiety food; untreated type II diabetes patients by reducing postprandial glucose level.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to develop fresh cheese made from different types of coconut milk (fresh, UHT, and reconstituted coconut milk) mixed with pasteurized cow’s milk (50:50) by rennet coagulation. The main aim of this study was to achieve successful formation of cheese curd with fully coconut milk aroma and flavor.

Design/methodology/approach

Fresh cheese made from different types of coconut milk mixed with cow’s milk (50:50) were developed and compared to fresh cheese made from cow’s milk (100:0). Physicochemical analysis including pH, acidity, percentage of yield, protein and fat content, texture analysis and sensory evaluation has been performed. The nine-point hedonic preference test (n=35) and consumer testing (n=235) were conducted.

Findings

In comparison, fresh cheese made with the presence of coconut milk (50:50) had higher fat content, lower crude protein content, higher firmness, and adhesiveness than those made from cow’s milk alone (0:100). The cheese with the presence of coconut milk was liked better by consumers (7.35 out of 9). Rehydrated coconut milk was mostly preferred to use among all three types of coconut milk which showed firmer texture and admired flavor. The texture of the developed product was proved to be similar to commercial cottage cheese. Using the rehydrated coconut milk in the formulation gave successful results for making fresh coconut milk cheese, which has also not been used previously in any research.

Research limitations/implications

In this paper, the effect of process conditions on the quality of cheese curd formation was not yet investigated and discussed. The process parameters including heat treatment and renneting time should be further studied.

Originality/value

A novel fresh cheese made from coconut milk mixed with pasteurized cow’s milk was successfully developed. The cheese curd was formed with fully coconut milk aroma and flavor.

Abstract

Hard cheeses Cheese has been made in this country for at least 2,000 years. Until the middle of the 19th century, cheese was made on the farm, using the unpasteurised milk from a single herd of cows and very simple equipment. However, due to the amount of cheese consumed in Britain today, 80 per cent is now produced in creameries.

Abstract

This Bill was read a second time without a division in the House of Commons on July 23rd after a debate lasting nearly five hours. Opposition speakers, including particularly Dr. Edith Summerskill and Mr. Willey (former Parliamentary Secretaries to the Ministry of Food between 1945 and 1951), attacked the Government for having whittled down, very extensively, the contemplated Regulations (to be made when the Bill is on the statute book) dealing with cleanliness in the handling of food. As is generally known, the draft regulations have for several months been the subject of many discussions between trade organisations and the Ministry of Food. As a result, the Minister has decided to modify or drop several of the proposals which he had at first intended to carry into effect by regulations, and to substitute for some of them “codes of practice.”

Abstract

With regard to the output of canned food in European Russia, it is stated by Rubinstein that the statistics are not altogether reliable. We conclude therefore that they must be accepted with caution. If the accuracy of statistics in relation to the output of European Russia is questioned, then, we submit, those relating to Asiatic Russia and the Far East will be still more open to challenge. These figures refer to things done! What value in these circumstances must be assigned to estimates of what it is hoped will be done?

Abstract

Slovenia lies at the crossroads of the Alpine, Mediterranean and Pannonian regions, and this variety of geographical landscapes is reflected in its diverse and rich culinary heritage. Down the centuries, the diverse culinary heritage developed as part of everyday life and the festive calendar in close correlation to whatever nature provided and to the standard of living.

In 2006 Slovenia adopted the Gastronomic Strategy of Slovenia, which includes a culinary pyramid with 24 gastronomic regions and over 360 distinct dishes with a local character. Posavje with Bizeljsko represents one of the gastronomic regions of Slovenia. The National Gastronomic Strategy lists the following dishes and wines for the Posavje Region: pofaláča, bizeljski ajdov kolač (Bizeljsko buckwheat cake), koruzna prga (corn cake), pleteno srce (plaited-dough heart), bizeljska mlinčevka (Bizeljsko flat cake tart) and white and red wine Bizeljčan. These dishes and wines represent the foundation of the distinct culinary identity of the Posavje and Bizeljsko Region.

The aim of this chapter is to define the culinary heritage of the Posavje Region and identify its special and characteristic taste. A mix of methods including qualitative research, field research, expert groups and workshops was applied to identify dishes, recipes and ingredients in everyday and festive cuisine as well as cuisine related to different jobs and tasks. A gastronomic pyramid of the Posavje Region was developed and culinary workshops were conducted to introduce regional gastronomy to tourism. Challenges identified in the project exposed the need for the establishment of local supply chains, good cooperation among stakeholders in tourism, quality assurance, branding and other issues related to local tourism and gastronomic development.

Abstract

1966 may not prove to be one of the vintage years in the field of food quality control, but it holds the promise of some particularly important developments; for new and improved compositional standards for a number of processed and pre‐cooked foods and a stricter regulation of the description of almost all foods. New Labelling of Food Regulations, more extensive than anything that has gone before, may have been finally made before the end of the year. (The last day for representations in the several divisions of the proposed Regulations was actually this January 13). The Food Standards Committee's recommendations were comprehensive but necessary and it is hoped that the regulations will show no serious whittling away of these recommendations.

Abstract

The next month or two behind us and this decade will have passed, to merge in the drab background of the post‐war years, part of the pattern of frustration, failure and fear. The ‘swinging sixties’ some called it, but to an older and perhaps slightly jaundiced eye, the only swinging seemed to be from one crisis to another, like the monkey swinging from bough to bough in his home among the trees; the ‘swingers’ among men also have their heads in the clouds! In the seemingly endless struggle against inflation since the end of the War, it would be futile to fail to see that the country is in retreat all the time. One can almost hear that shaft of MacLeodian wit christening the approaching decade as the ‘sinking seventies’, but it may not be as bad as all that, and certainly not if the innate good sense and political soundness of the British gives them insight into their perilous plight.

Abstract

An account of two cases of alleged sale of adulterated butter was published in the Oldham Evening Chronicle of the 25th April last, and in the Oldham Standard of the 26th of the same month. The facts as reported call for comment, not because they are in any way extraordinary—they are indeed essentially common place—but the method of dealing with them by the Oldham Health Committee seems to us to be so.
