Cottage cheese is very healthy and contains many nutrients necessary for the human body. It is not always possible to find a high-quality and safe product in the store, but you can easily check it at home with iodine and hot water.

The FoodOboz editorial team has selected two of the most popular ways to check cottage cheese for quality.

How to check cottage cheese for quality

Method 1 – iodine

This method is the best way to check cottage cheese for starch. This ingredient is often added to the product to give it a visual density and amount.

To check its content, you need to drop a drop of iodine on a piece of cheese and wait a few minutes. If there is no starch, the iodine stain will not change color; if there is, the stain will turn blue.

Method 2 – hot water

For this method, you need to take a small lump of cottage cheese and put it in boiling water. The point is that high-quality and natural cottage cheese begins to melt when heated and turns into a viscous mass, while the water remains pure. As for fake cheese, the opposite is true – unnatural cheese does not melt in boiling water or break up into flakes. A greasy film on the surface of the water also indicates a fake.
