So, what is cheag?

Cheag is a unique food ingredient that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It is a type of fermented milk that is traditionally made in the Balkan region of Europe. Cheag is made by heating milk and then adding a bacterial culture to it, which ferments the milk and creates a thick, creamy texture. The resulting product is similar to yogurt, but with a tangy, slightly sour taste that is distinctively its own. Cheag is rich in probiotics and has been known to have health benefits such as improving digestion and boosting the immune system. It can be used as a topping for savory dishes, mixed with sweeteners for a dessert, or enjoyed on its own as a healthy snack.
