Buffalo ricotta is an Italian whey cheese made from buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese. Like other whey cheeses, it is made by coagulating the proteins that remain after the casein has been used to make cheese, notably albumin and globulin. Buffalo ricotta curds are creamy white in appearance, and slightly sweet in taste. A mouthful of our buffalo milk ricotta is the closest youÕll get to eating delicious clouds. Rich, creamy curds made from milky whey Ñ a magical by-product of our cheese-making process. Slightly thicker than our traditional cowÕs milk ricotta, it has a subtly sweet aftertaste.
