Question What is Quark?? Uses?? Allowable on phase 1?

I had to look this up. Here's al link about what it is and how to make it

Essentially it's a homestyle yogurt cheese made from buttermilk culture.

I'm pretty sure it's not listed in the book, so I think you'd have to compare the nutrition label (or find a recipe online with nutrition information) to dairy products that are allowed, looking for similar fat/carb/protein counts.

Hi Heather. I've used Quark. It is usually low fat and sort of a cross between cottage cheese and cream cheese but not lumpy. I sometimes make a savory spread by adding chopped veggies and seasoning or a sweet spread by adding sweetener and cinnamon. "Farmer's cheese" is very similar.

Ok..so its not to be eaten like cottage cheese then? You want to use it more as a spread then an actual dish..like eating a cup of cottage cheese for instance..

I'm sure you could eat it like cottage cheese. Compare the calories and content and then decide. It's not something I use every day but there is a recipe called Liptauer. Here's the link. I'd use an OK spread like Becel light or ICBINB. http://www.tourmycountry.com/austria/liptauer.htm

Quark is like greek yogurt though quite low fat. You can eat it instead of yogurt with fruit or make a dip for veggies etc. You can also use it in baking.
