Ricotta di Pecora
Latticino a base di siero
Sheep milk ricotta is a very fresh product obtained from sheep milk whey.
The name "ricotta" is derived from a Latin word (recoctus) which means re-cooked. It cannot be considered a cheese but rather a milk derivative. Although a poor and simple product it is good for the health which makes it suitable for children.
It has a soft creamy consistency and a full delicate flavour. Ricotta made from whey is suitable for low calorie diets and the preparation of tasty but light dishes. It is the base for various sweet and savoury dishes.
