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