Yoghurt is one of the best-known fermented milk products. It was already eaten in the ancient world by the Arab nations and throughout the Middle East, to central Asia and southern Europe. Some claim it is beneficial for a long and healthy life. Our yoghurt is made from a live probiotic culture. No preservatives are added and the consistency varies, depending on the goats’ grazing possibilities throughout the seasons.
Ricotta quite simply means ‘recooked’ in Italian. This fresh cheese is made from whey. (When cheese is made, the coagulated milk separates into a solid component known as curd, and a liquid component known as whey.) The fat content in ricotta is minimal. It is a great product to add to savoury as well as dessert dishes, as it does not have a pronounced flavour, but is delicate and delicious.
