    I buy cottage cheese produced by local dairies. It helps that I live in a state that produces a lot of dairy. I find Dean's and Prairie Farms to be really good. They are both regional companies.

    Dean's is good. I didn't know it was local to you (I guess it's semi local to me, as I'm in a neighboring state).

    Other than that I'll get it at the farmers market.

    IIRC they started in western PA/eastern Ohio (Amish country) and spread throughout the Great Lakes area because of the large number of dairy farms. They actually contract local dairies to produce under their name so it is local milk made into cottage cheese using Deans specifications and cultures.

    Love hearing everyone's different preferences! My personal favorites are Good Culture and Kalona

    LOL, wait until he finds out there's DHMO in all cottage cheese, too...

    DHMO is no laughing matter. Did you know that it has a higher pH than any other acid?

    I did know that. Did you know it's also used as an industrial solvent and that inhaling it can kill you?

    I much prefer cottage cheese over greek yogurt, and I'm just curious to hear your favorite brands!

    Usually prefer Lucerne. I have found some brands the curds are harder, and others are softer. The dry curd cottage cheese is passable when used in omelets, but I usually add salsa to it, to reduce the dry texture.

    I like Daisy (regular, not the low fat).
    Daisy 4%

    I like Daisy because it only has four or five ingredients and all of those ingredients are easy to pronounce, so I know it's natural. I've read ingredient lists on other brands that list crap like carbon dioxide and such. What the hell is carbon dioxide doing in cottage cheese??

    It's a preservative...not sure what your logic is in considering carbon dioxide as unnatural...(><). What the hell are you doing expiring carbon dioxide? "Scary" chemical names/the "natural" argument just highlights society's general ignorance in chemistry

    I keep reading this but those reasons don't get any less stu...ill informed.

    Sorry guys (not sorry) but I think it's silly that the stuff that comes out the exhaust pipe of my automobile be in my food. Eat natural food, not preservative-laden crap.

    Are you maybe mixing up carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide?

    Carbon dioxide is what we exhale.

    I've not seen either listed on cottage cheese, personally.
