Get familiar with proteins

Proteins are found in various types of food. Food of animal origin such as meat, fish, eggs, milk and cheese are good sources of protein. Proteins participate in all cell processes and are important for our body. There are several types of proteins, each of which has its own function. Daily protein needs are 1.7-2 g per kilogram of body weight. If we do not take enough, our body functions with difficulty.


Scientific research has shown that by consuming more protein at the same time we take fewer calories and lose weight more easily, and that more protein in a diet increases the feeling of satiation, reduces the desire to eat late and obsessive thoughts about food. 

In Urda, fresh whey cheese from Homolje, during the production process the fat is reduced to a minimum, which makes the product rich in high-quality proteins. Proteins of high value – serum albumin and globulin make 12.70 g of proteins in 100 g of the product. These proteins are easily digested and well absorbed and can be given even to babies, and can be consumed by people who are lactose intolerant.
