I was curious if ricotta cheese is Paleo or not?

Paleo isn't "superior" to Primal, it simply eliminates dairy-- which some, but not all people, can tolerate without issue. No wonder people think that all of us who eat this way are elitist, my goodness.

I think a majority of paleo folks do consume dairy despite recommendations to do otherwise, meaning most folks can handle dairy just fine. Ricotta is a cheese primarily made from whey, which is less problematic than cheeses that contain mostly casein.

Ricotta salata is still made with whey, but most commerical ricotta is made with milk.

Technically dairy is not Paleo. However some people will still use dairy in their paleo lifestyle.

Personally I do not like the taste of milk, but I love using butter, cream and cheese.

perhaps you might look at This article to make up your own mind about dairy :)

According to Cordain, it's not even technical: it's not Paleo. And he's right. But he ignores the high protein. You have to decide for yourself what makes sense.

Ricotta cheese would be considered primal, not paleo. It contains whey and lactose which can be a problem for some people. If you can tolerate, then enjoy.

Dairy is not paleo. It is primal. There is a difference. Paleo is far more the superior way of eating.

ugh, what you're actually displaying is not superiority but dogma.
