Ricotta Cheeses

Expert cheesemakers stay true to Italian traditions when crafting mild and creamy Ricotta Cheese. Ricotta (Italian for “cooked twice”) Cheese is the product of leftover whey proteins—after heating, the curd forms and is skimmed off and drained. Ricotta Cheese is a staple in Italian kitchens, but its versatility and clean flavor make it adaptable to use across all menu types.

Frigo® Ricotta Cheese

Refined Italian Tradition

A four-generation-old Frigo® Brand family tradition of cheesemaking came to Wisconsin in 1938, using what the family defined as the “best-quality milk in the world.” Their dedication to the best comes through today in their fine Ricotta Cheeses. With many varieties for the professional restaurateur, each delivers a mild, slightly sweet, fresh flavor and creamy, fluffy texture.
