What is Quark?
Quark originating in Europe is a fresh dairy product, popular in German-speaking countries, Slavic countries, and northern Europe.
Despite a very similar texture and appearance to Greek yoghurt, quark is not a yoghurt and is produced quite differently to both cheese and yoghurt.
Plain quark tastes like a cross between Greek yoghurt and cottage cheese. No real surprise given its texture and nutrient profile. It has far less salt than any cream cheese, and far more protein than Greek yoghurt. Proteins are the main nutrient required to build muscle.
Quark is in a league of its own, yet it’s not quite cheese and not quite yoghurt.
Alexander’s Quark really is a unique type of food, and makes a healthful addition to just about any diet. It would actually make a fantastic nutritional supplement in hospitals because of its high protein, low sodium nutrient profile
