There are two main types of cottage cheese: dry curd and regular. Dry curd cottage cheese is sometimes called farmer cheese or baker’s cheese. Both are made by transforming milk from a liquid to cheese curds. Curds can form through heat and/or by adding an enzymes like rennet to milk. Dry curd cottage cheese is dry because the majority of liquid is pressed out. It does not have the milky wetness like regular cottage cheese found in grocery stores. That is because regular cottage cheese has cream/milk added to it at the end of manufacturing to give it a creamy texture. Creamed cottage cheese is typically identified by its milkfat percentage. It will have 4 percent or greater milkfat. It is often called full fat, regular cottage cheese.
