Easy muffins with MEDITERANEO cheese
Ingredients:
  • 10 tablespoons plain white flour
  • 10 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 packet baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 250 grams (or more) MEDITERANEO cheese
  • sesame or cumin seeds, if desired

Mix the two types of flour, baking powder, oil and eggs. The mixture should not be combined with a mixer, but only lightly, using a mixing spoon. Add a pack of coarsely crumbled MEDITERANEO cheese, as the chunks of cheese will give a unique texture to the muffins.

 

When the mixture is well combined, pour it into a muffin tray, sprinkle with sesame or cumin seeds, and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes.

 

When they get golden in colour, the muffins are ready to be enjoyed for breakfast, snack or dinner.

Milk is one of the most important and most complete foods in children’s nutrition.

From the age of two, children should consume about half a litre of milk or dairy products a day.

A word from an expert

Cow’s milk and dairy products are, for the vast majority of children, safe and healthy food! Milk and dairy products are an excellent source of calcium, which is one of the most important minerals for a child’s growth and development – explains our renowned expert, paediatrician Tatjana Vukomanović and adds:

It would be best if the baby’s first contact with cow’s milk was yoghurt! Fermented dairy products, such as yoghurt, contain beneficial probiotic bacteria that are extremely important for children’s health (this certainly applies to adults as well). They help digestion, but also help a child build a healthy immune system. Everything that applies to yoghurt also applies to curdled milk! Cheese spreads should also be included in children’s diet. It is necessary to take care that it is free of additives, preservatives and artificial flavours – so Sirko and A la Kajmak are an excellent choice. These products are made from the highest quality local milk, by a modern technological process.

VITAMINS

Milk is rich in B vitamins, and B12 is especially important, as it helps create red blood cells. Vitamin A is responsible for good eyesight and healthy skin, and vitamin D strengthens immunity and fights viruses.

MINERALS

Milk and dairy products are the richest sources of an important mineral – calcium. In our body, as much as 99% of calcium is stored in bones and teeth.

PROTEINS

One of the main nutrients that make milk extremely important for health is protein. Milk contains two types of protein – casein and whey protein. Casein is a protein that dominates in milk, about 80% of the total protein in milk is from this group. Whey protein makes up 20% of the total value of protein in milk. This protein greatly contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which Mlekara Šabac products do not contain additives or preservatives?
Additives are compounds that are added in small amounts to foods in order to improve the organoleptic or other properties of food. Preservatives are a type of additive and their role is to prolong shelf life and prevent microbiological spoilage of food. Mlekara Šabac products do not contain preservatives.

Do Mlekara Šabac products contain gluten?
Gluten is a protein contained in cereals such as wheat, rye and barley, and the body’s hypersensitivity to this protein is manifested in different ways in different people. The most severe form is an autoimmune disease called celiac disease. In people with celiac disease, the mucous membrane of the small intestine is damaged, due to which the resorption of food is reduced. Mlekara Šabac products do not contain gluten. If our products contain any allergen, the presence of the allergen is always indicated on the product label.
Why is milk pasteurization important?
Pasteurization is a technological process of milk processing by heating at temperatures lower than 100°C, whereby all pathogenic microorganisms and their enzymes are destroyed, ensuring the safety of the product.
What is sterilization?
Sterilization is the process of heat treatment of milk at temperatures above 100°C. The process is optimized so that all valuable ingredients of milk are preserved, and microorganisms and their enzymes are destroyed, which significantly prolongs the shelf life of the product.
Which products contain the most calcium?
It is important to emphasize that the absorption of calcium in the body from milk and dairy products is better than from other types of food. Therefore, it is recommended to consume dairy products every day. In Mlekara Šabac product range, the most protein in 100 g of product is in cheeses and cheese spreads, followed by yoghurt, curdled milk, UHT and fresh milk, sour cream, mileram and whey drink.
What is milk lactose intolerance?
Lactose is a natural, integral part of milk, so it is found in almost all dairy products – yoghurt, cheese, fruit yoghurt, spreads and sour milk. Lactose can also be called milk sugar. It is estimated that about 65% of the world population is deficient in the lactase enzyme, which makes it difficult for them to digest milk sugar. In that case, we are talking about lactose intolerance, i.e. people whose body is sensitive to lactose. If you feel nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhoea or bloating after consuming dairy products, it is very likely that you are more or less lactose intolerant.
Does Sirko spread contain any flavour enhancers?
Our unique Sirko is made completely from natural ingredients, without additives, preservatives and artificial flavours. Due to its traditional and unchanged taste, it has been a favourite among our consumers for decades, both in Serbia and in foreign markets.
