What is burrata cheese?
Burrata cheese is a better mozzarella! It’s a soft ball with a creamy centre. Made with a thin skin of mozzarella, the filling is a mixture of fresh cream and mozzarella curds.
The flavour of burrata is creamier and buttery than mozzarella. It's like a luxurious version of mozzarella!
Although mozzarella is vegetarian friendly, burrata is not due to the rennet used to make it. If you want to check your cheeses or their carbs, here's a list of over 70 types. https://ketovegetarianrecipes.com/carbs-cheese/
