Baked Ricotta

product_baked_ricotta Olympus Ricotta is made from the whey leftover from making Olympus halloumi or fetta.

We cook the whey and then add fresh cow’s milk to create the characteristic white, smooth, fresh curd cheese with a mild, creamy taste and thick texture.

Olympus Ricotta is a good source of calcium and magnesium. Being low in salt and fat (about 10 percent), it is an ideal food for people who are health-conscious.

Serving Suggestions

Our award-winning ricotta is widely used in baking, in Italian cuisine and is also ideal to serve as a breakfast food or dessert with fresh fruit.

Olympus baked and lemon-pepper baked ricotta are also delicious served cubed in salads and with barbecues.

We recommend Olympus fresh ricotta for baking and packaged ricotta for other uses.
