Technically, ricotta is not a cheese , but a cheese by-product. Its name, ricotta means cooked again, an obvious reference to the production method used to make it.

Ricotta is made from the whey drained from other cheeses like fontal ,provolone and other cheeses releasing liquid from the curd particles. This liquid, called “whey,” contains milk sugar, minerals and water-soluble milk proteins, FORESTI’s ricotta is generally made with a combination of whey and whole cow's milk.

Ricotta is similar in texture to cottage cheese though considerably lighter and is a key ingredient in many cakes and desserts. Ricotta is a fresh soft and crumbly snow white cheese, with a rich but mildly sweet milk flavor, its’ solids are compacted into small rounds and its texture is crumbly but firm.
