Award-Winning Category Innovator Celebrates the Use of Dairy for On-the-Go,
Protein-Packed Snacks and Recipes
This June, in celebration of Dairy Month, Muuna® cottage cheese is encouraging consumers to “choose cottage” as a great tasting, ridiculously creamy, protein-packed snack or meal option in place of Greek yogurt, and as an alternative to mayo, sour cream and yogurt in recipes. Since its launch in 2016, the brand has reimagined the cottage cheese category with its proprietary melt-in-your-mouth recipe, providing enhanced nutritional benefits including 14-19 grams of protein, just 3-9 grams of sugar, plus calcium, potassium, vitamins A & C and probiotics in every serving, while also delivering award winning taste. From beautifully, bright, single-serve cups available in plain and eight fruit flavors, to multi-serve items in Lowfat and Classic Plain, Muuna offers nutritious options for everyone.
Consumers can reap the nutritional benefits of cottage cheese in their favorite dishes during Dairy Month by adding velvety Classic or Lowfat Plain Muuna cottage cheese to a variety of recipes, giving dishes a protein and probiotics boost. Rich and creamy Lowfat and Classic Plain Muuna contain an incredible 14 grams of protein in each 4-ounce serving and are an excellent substitute for dairy products like Greek yogurt and sour cream as well as oil-based products like mayonnaise. Start now with these protein-boosting recipe swaps:
Pump up the nutrition in your potato, pasta and veggie salads by trading low-protein, oil-based mayonnaise for rich and creamy Muuna Lowfat Plain cottage cheese. With Muuna Lowfat Plain cottage cheese you’ll add a whopping 14 grams of protein per half cup plus calcium, potassium, vitamin A and probiotics. Healthful side dishes are perfect for backyard cookouts with friends and family.
Swap low-protein sour cream with protein-packed creamy Muuna Lowfat Plain cottage cheese in your favorite summer dips like this From-Scratch Creamy Ranch Dip or Protein-Packed Buffalo Dip. Filled with flavor, protein and probiotics, dips made with creamy Muuna will keep your guests full longer.
Celebrate the start of summer weather with this easy-to-make Protein-Packed Acai Smoothie Bowl. Swapping out yogurt with Muuna’s fruit-on-the-bottom cottage cheese provides 15 grams of satiating casein protein and only 9 grams of sugar per serving, plus the benefits of calcium, potassium, vitamins A & C and probiotics. A great way to start your day!
“We are seeing more and more consumers make healthy ingredient choices such as swapping cottage cheese for less nutritionally balanced dairy items and hope to see this trend continue during Dairy Month” said Gerard Meyer, CEO of Muuna.” Beyond our rich and creamy texture and great taste, we have worked to add nutritionally beneficial elements to each of our offerings. As a result, Muuna is high in protein with just 3-9 grams of sugar per serving, is a good source of calcium, and contains potassium, vitamins A & C and probiotics. These factors make Muuna an excellent meal or grab-and-go-snack snack option, as well as a nutritious recipe alternative to other dairy products and mayonnaise.”
In addition to 16-ounce Lowfat and Classic Plain, and a 5.3-ounce Lowfat Plain option, Muuna offers eight award-winning, single-serve flavors with real fruit pieces, including Strawberry, Blueberry, Pineapple, Peach, Mango, Raspberry, Black Cherry and Vanilla. The 5.3-ounce single-serving containers make it easy to maintain a balanced diet from home, work or on-the-go, as they contain an incredible 15-19 grams of protein, 4-9 grams of sugar, just 120-130 per cup, plus calcium, potassium and vitamins A & C. The brand’s recent addition of the probiotic Bifidobacterium Lactis (B. lactis) to its offerings makes Muuna one of the only brands of cottage cheese that contains probiotics across a broad variety of items, including nine different flavors, low-fat and full fat versions and in both multi-serve and snack size packages.
