More on Ricotta Cheese

A ricotta cake includes ricotta cheese, which is a whey cheese that is made from whey that is left over from cheese production. It is made by coagulating proteins, albumin, and globulin, that are left over after the casein is used to make cheese. Ricotta means "recooked," and the cheese is produced by passing the liquid through a fine cloth so the curd is left behind. It is similar to cottage cheese in liquid through a fine cloth so the curd is left behind. It is similar to cottage cheese in texture and can have varying fat content. It has a slightly sweet taste.

Production of it dates back to the Bronze Age in Italy. Traditionally, it was made with whey and a small amount of milk. In the United States, whole-milk ricotta is popular and known as "ricottone." In cooking, it is often used as a part of Italian meals, or in cheesecake and cannolis. When it is mixed with eggs and cooked grains, it is the centerpiece of Neapolitan pastiera, a popular Italian Easter pie.
