Now2Day - here is what I read online last night about the Horizon Organic CC so you have an alternative to the Breakstone.
Horizon Organic Cottage Cheese starts with fat free organic milk and pasteurized certified organic cream. It is enhanced with calcium and two live and active cultures, L. acidophilus and B. bifidus, which have been shown to help support a healthy intestinal tract. Horizon Organic cottage cheese is one of the few cottage cheeses available that adds calcium back to replace what is naturally lost in processing. Horizon Organic cottage cheese is available in 16-ounce containers ($3.79) with Regular and Reduced Fat options. www.horizonorganic.com
@NOW2DAY, Breakstone has cottage cheese with probiotics and it says "Live Active for Digestive Health" on the label. I bought a 4-pack that were each 1/2 cup. I've never come across any other brands that contain probiotics. It's a nice alternative to yogurt.
I am no expert since I just started this week, but I was reading about this exact question last night. The dairy in the book is very confusing to me so I did some searching on my own. From what I found online most cottage cheeses DON"T have probiotocs! That was news to me for sure! Only the Breakstone CC recommended in the book and Horizon Organic seem to have the probiotics we need. Neither of these are available near me though.
I am interested to hear what anyone else thinks though because until last night I thought they all did too!
