High Protein Dairy Products are in Trend

High Protein Dairy Products are in Trend

Across Europe, high-protein dairy products are a hit. Arla Foods’ production of cottage cheese alone has increased by over 110 per cent in the last five years, and to keep up with demand, Arla plans to open Europe’s largest cottage cheese dairy this Autumn.

When it comes to nutrition, cottage cheese – once produced from the leftover milk in the butter making process – is quickly becoming a superstar of the dairy world. That’s why Arla plans to open a dairy in Falkenberg, Sweden, that will ship 29,000 tonnes of the chunky, curdly food each year to countries all over Europe (enough to fill 230 fully-loaded average railcars).

The cottage cheese boom has come thanks to a general focus on healthier, higher-protein diets in recent years. A 2013 article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that a high protein breakfast, compared to a low protein one, can decrease the intake of unhealthy snacks in the evening. Cottage cheese can be a fast and convenient way to increase protein intake during breakfast.

Because it can be eaten throughout the day cottage cheese initially became popular with health enthusiasts, but has since gained a foothold with other consumers. For many of them, it has been about convenience: cottage cheese can be eaten directly from the container, or easily mixed with fruit, veggies or even spices.

“Whether one is looking for high protein products good for a low fat diet, or because they workout a lot and prefer protein for muscle recovery, cottage cheese and other high protein dairy products – things like skyr and quarks- are becoming more and more popular,“ says Lise Larsen, Nutrition Specialist at Arla’s Strategic Innovation Centre.
