Cottage cheese is one of the few foods that can be consumed during an exacerbation of the inflammatory process in the pancreas. The protein contained in it is assimilated by the organism much easier than other animal proteins. Cottage cheese with pancreatitis is allowed to eat, combining with other food, and as an independent dish.
Is it possible to curd for pancreatitis?
Many people consult with a doctor about whether it is possible to eat cottage cheese in pancreatitis. Nutritionists welcome the use of this product in pure form, and as an additive to other dishes. The medicinal effect and nutritional value of cottage cheese are due to the presence in its composition of a large number of high-grade proteins, and in addition a very important amino acid - methionine. It also combines various vitamins with microelements.
When pancreatitis should be exclusively non-acidic and fresh, low-fat product. The most suitable is the house curd. The patient should use it in the form of a paste. Also it is allowed to make a variety of dishes, such as soufflé and casseroles with puddings.
Sour and fatty cottage cheese to patients with pancreatitis is prohibited. In addition, you can not spice it with spices, because it can provoke the production of a large amount of bile. It is also forbidden to cook from the cottage cheese dishes that need to be roasted twice, using a lot of sunflower oil.
Cottage cheese with acute and chronic pancreatitis, exacerbation of pancreatitis
It is recommended to study the peculiarities of using the product in the acute form of pancreatitis, so as not to provoke an exacerbation of the pathology or worsen the patient's condition.
To avoid stress on the pancreas, you should use only cottage cheese, the fat content of which does not exceed 3%. In addition, the product must be fresh, optimally cooked independently. For production, 1 liter of milk is required (recommended pasteurized), which must be boiled. Then add lemon juice (0.5 lemon), wait for the milk to curdle, then remove it from the fire and flip the contents of the container over the cheesecloth (2nd layer). Cottage cheese will be ready when the serum completely drains.
To avoid an increase in the index of gastric acidity, it is required to consume cottage cheese, the acidity of which is not higher than 170 ° T.
Use it is allowed both mashed, and in the form of pudding, steamed.
To make up for the shortage of calcium, it is allowed to eat food made on the basis of the so-called calcined cottage cheese. You can make it yourself by adding calcium (you can choose chloride or lactic acid) in milk.
It is forbidden to eat curd mass or pudding every day. The recommended amount is no more than 2-3 times per week.
For a day it is allowed to eat not more than 250 grams of cottage cheese. In this case, for a single dose, it is recommended to consume a maximum of 150 g of the product.
During the first days, patients are often given sweet dishes - soufflé or puddings, and salty curd foods can be added to the diet later.
With exacerbation of chronic pancreatitis, curd should be consumed in accordance with the prescriptions that are offered in the acute form of the disease. When the inflammation begins to subside, and pain and signs of hypersensitivity to the product are absent (among such digestive disorders - vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea), you can increase the fat content of cottage cheese to 4-5%.
With remission, it is allowed to eat 9% curd. In addition, use it is allowed not only in the form of a souffle or pudding, but also mixing with pasta, cereals, and also meat dishes. You can add a menu of buns that are stuffed with cottage cheese, and in addition lazy dumplings.
If a person begins a persistent remission, you can try to add to your diet dishes that include 20% curd. It should be remembered that cottage cheese with such fat content can provoke an exacerbation of the pathology, if the remission was insufficiently stable. In addition, fatty cottage cheese inhibits the process of calcium absorption, because of which the digestive system can acquire additional load.
At the end of the hunger period, when the pathology worsens (on the 2nd-3rd day), it is allowed to add curd products to the ration. But in this case, you need to eat a fraction, without consuming both cottage cheese and milk, because it can irritate the pancreas.

Most dieticians assure that there is an unlimited amount of cottage cheese, even in the case of exacerbation of gastritis, although it should be understood that the product must be fresh and wiped. In addition, with a similar pathology, the shape of the souffle is also suitable for use.
