An uneven, lumpy texture is what first comes to mind when most people think of cottage cheese. But Gay Lea’s latest offering is velvety smooth, giving the dairy product broader appeal.
“There’s nothing like this – it’s the first of its kind,” says registered dietitian Shannon Crocker. “It’s highly innovative and it has all the health benefits of cottage cheese without the lumpy texture.
Packed with protein and high in calcium, Nordica Smooth cottage cheese is nutrient-rich, with the added benefit of being low in fat and sodium.
“It’s higher in calcium and protein than an equivalent serving size of Greek yogurt,” says Crocker, adding that the single-serving portion size also means it’s low in calories.
Nordica Smooth, which comes in vanilla bean and salted caramel flavours, is also very versatile. Here are just a few of the many different ways you can use this delicious new product:

The final word
Crocker urges both fans of cottage cheese and those who aren’t as enamoured with the product to try Nordica Smooth.
“This is another way for cottage cheese lovers to enjoy the product, and for people who don’t like cottage cheese, give it a taste. All you have to do is try it and you’ll fall in love,” she says.
