Make it Yourself and you know what's in it. Control the content, maximise the goodness, and get the flavour of truly fresh food. How hard can it be, and how good can it be?!
Use organic milk, your call on the type of milk - homogenised (for ricotta cheese), or unhomogenised. And of course, no chemical additives, preservatives, or sneaky little extras.
Make it at home and you know where it's been, zero (or very low) food miles, less chemicals in the environment, less chemicals in you.
Make it plastic free, no superfluous packaging, in fact it'll be lucky to get to the packaging stage, because, YUM!
(Add some home made Sourdough, a glass of Kombucha and you're done! Happy belly! And the cost of this feast? Some milk, some tea, some sugar, flour and culture. It's all about the culture for the happy tummy part! The satisfaction of creating your own is the best, hard to quantify, easy to recognise.)
