Health Benefits

Paneer, also known as cottage cheese, is one of the healthier foods that you can include in your diet. It is low in calories and high in protein and healthy fats which makes it pretty substantially healthy to consume in general. The cheese is also rich in B-complex vitamins which have their own health benefits:

  • Vitamin B12 – helps with proper brain functioning and iron absorption.
  • Riboflavin – helps to convert carbs into energy.
  • Pantothenic acid- synthesizes proteins, fats, and carbs.
