BUFFALO RICOTTA

 

TASTING NOTES

Buffalo milk is a delightful contradiction in flavours and textures; at once lactic, and acidic but sweet, rich and creamy. This is a little firmer than a traditional cows’ milk ricotta, as it’s higher in protein. It is also creamier and richer, with a sweet aftertaste.

 

WHAT IS BUFFALO RICOTTA

Ricotta is an Italian whey cheese made from water buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese. Like other whey cheeses, it is made by coagulating the proteins that remain after the casein has been used to make cheese, notably albumin and globulin.

 

Ricotta (literally meaning "recooked") protein can be harvested if the whey is first allowed to become more acidic by additional fermentation (by letting it sit for 12–24 hours at room temperature). Then the acidified whey is heated to near boiling. The combination of low pH and high temperature denatures the protein and causes it to precipitate, forming a fine curd. Once cooled, it is separated by passing the liquid through a fine cloth, leaving the curd behind.

 

Ricotta curds are creamy white in appearance, and slightly sweet in taste. The fat content changes depending on the brand and the type of milk used. In this form, it is somewhat similar in texture to some cottage cheese variants, though considerably lighter. It is highly perishable. However, ricotta also is made in aged varieties which are preservable for much longer.
