Place regular yogurt into this cotton bag with drawstring handles and allow the liquid to drain to produce yogurt cheese, or use the cheese bag to prepare paneer. Yogurt cheese is a creamy cheese product produced when the whey is drained from yogurt. With a higher concentration of nutrients after the whey is removed, yogurt cheese provides a creamy smooth cheese that is low in calories, sodium, lactose, and cholesterol. Yogurt cheese made from plain yogurt has a mild flavour, which is similar to cream cheese or sour cream. As it quickly takes on the flavor of the food it is mixed with, yogurt cheese can be blended into jam, jelly, spreadable fruit, or peanut butter to be served as a spread for bagels, English muffins, or toast.
