Los Angeles-based Good Culture, a flavored cottage cheese line, is now available nationally, with a new recipe and new look.
The non-GMO cottage cheese is now made with whole milk (it was previously made with low-fat.) The company also updated the container with a "cleaner look" and new shape, going from a lower, wide cup to a taller, skinnier cup. The container previously featured bright colors across the entire cup. With the update, the company opted for a simpler look with a stripe of color across the top and white with colored lettering on the rest. The cups still feature the bold pictures that relate to the flavor across the front.
“We felt this packaging update more effectively communicated our great tasting, clean ingredient, real food product,” said from co-founder Jesse Merrill.
As for the recipe change, he said, “More consumers are shifting towards whole milk options as they continue to seek out products that are less processed and filled with whole, real ingredients.”
The cottage cheese is available in five flavors — sundried tomato, Kalamata olive, blueberry chia, strawberry chia and classic plain. A 5.3-ounce serving of the strawberry chia flavor contains 140 calories, 6 grams of fat, 4 grams of sugar and 18 grams of protein. The suggested retail price is $2.49.
The cultured product can be found in stores nationwide.
