Sheep milk yogurt & ricotta
Sheep-milk yogurt is a traditional favourite around the world. The sheep milk creates a rich yet delicate taste, matched with a delightful tang. Many people with lactose difficulties find sheep’s-milk yogurt easier to digest.
This yogurt, marketed under the Shepherd Gourmet label, is an all-natural, Balkan-style yogurt with 5% milk fat.
Ingredients: Pasteurized sheep milk, bacterial culture
Plain, Vanilla and New Blueberry flavors
Ricotta differs from most cheese in that it’s made from the excess whey produced during first-stage cheese making. So it’s a responsible way to use every drop of milk our dairy animals work so hard to produce. In Italy, ricotta is made from sheep, goat or buffalo milk. It has a rich, sweet taste missing from its more subtle flavor North American cow’s-milk counterparts. It’s that taste you’ll find in our home-grown sheep-milk ricotta, now packed in a retail 500gm tub that is available in many fine retailers and cheese boutiques across Canada under the Shepherd Gourmet label.
