Ricotta Castelli is made in the italian traditional methods.

This cheese is a low fat cheese made from the whey from Mozzarella production, like other whey cheeses, it is made by coagulating the proteins that remain after the casein has been used to make Mozzarella. 

Ricotta (literally meaning "recooked") uses whey, the liquid that remains after straining curds when making cheese.

Most of the milk protein (especially casein) is removed when cheese is made, but some protein remains in the whey, which is what forms the granular texture of the Ricotta. 

Ricotta curds are creamy white in appearance, slightly sweet in taste, and typically has a low fat content of around 11%.

In this form, it is somewhat similar in texture to some cottage cheese variants, though considerably lighter.


Ricotta is a common ingredient in Italian desserts, as well as filled and baked pasta dishes.

This fresh cheese is often used in desserts or eaten alone with fruit compotes or more familiarly used in savory dishes with Pasta in Ravioli or Cannelloni – Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli.
