If eating high-protein foods with minimal ingredients and zero added preservatives, sweeteners, colors or flavors is important to you and your family read on to learn about Wunder Quark, a thick cultured dairy product that is perfect on its own, or as a base for sweet or savory recipes.
We’ve partnered with Wunder Creamery to introduce you to quark, share how it can be used, its flavor profiles and an awesome giveaway where you can enter to win FREE cups of Wunder Quark.
What is Quark?
Quark is a European style cultured dairy known for its smooth taste, thick texture, and high protein content. While most cultured dairy turns tart, Wunder Quark takes on a smooth, buttery flavor and is naturally non-tart. Beloved for centuries across Europe and Central Asia for its high protein, thick texture and culinary versatility. Incredibly versatile, quark can be enjoyed in many forms, from snacking to baking.
Because Quark is ultrafiltered, it contains less than 5% lactose, so it may be an option for you if you have a light lactose sensitivity.
When I tell you it’s thick – imagine placing a spoon into the center of a cup of quark and watching it stand straight up without falling over. That’s truly how thick it is.
How is Quark Made?
The production of Wunder Quark starts with thoughtfully sourced, grass-fed whole milk from family farms. The milk is mixed with a special blend of dairy cultures that create flavorful, buttery notes and a lingering creaminess. It’s then ultrafiltered and strained to achieve a thick and rich texture that yields 15 to 16 grams of protein per cup. The tartness is removed by gently heating the mixture which results in a smooth, non-tart taste.
There are no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, flavors, or growth hormones in the Wunder Quark products.
Quark is perfect for a high-protein breakfast, afternoon snack, or in a smoothie. You can also use it in baked goods anytime you want to boost the protein.
Wunder Quark Flavors Review
The Safeway Denver Division carries 4 flavors of Wunder Quark. Plain, Raspberry, Blueberry, and Vanilla Bean.
Wunder Creamery Raspberry Quark – creamy, with a subtle raspberry flavor, the quark is perfect topped with granola and fruit for a morning breakfast, or on its own as an easy on the go high protein option post-workout or as an afternoon snack.

Wunder Creamery Vanilla Bean with a Hint of Coconut Quark has a rich and creamy texture and you can see the organic vanilla bean seeds throughout the quark which gives it its insense and delicious vanilla flavor. It has just a hint of coconut, as per its name, which makes it perfect to eat on its own, or in a smoothie, to make a cake, a bread or even a delicious fruit dip. The vanilla was a family favorite in our house. We used it to make a delicious vanilla bean berry smoothie, which was a perfect high-protein snack for my kids after school.

It’s a perfect substitute for sour cream, mayo, cream cheese, or Greek Yogurt in both sweet and savory recipes. Perfect with fresh herbs and lemon as a healthy high protein dip for your favorite vegetables. I made a lemon-herb quark dip for the center of a crudites platter for the Super Bowl this year and it disappeared in minutes. Simple, healthy and delicious!

How is Quark Different from Yogurt?
There are four key differences between quark and yogurt.
The Cultures: Quark is made using a special blend of buttermilk cultures from France, which gives the quark its irresistibly smooth, creamy texture.
The Ingredients: Because quark is strained, its consistency is much thicker than yogurt. It actually takes four cups of milk to make one cup of quark.
The Process: Each batch of Wunder Quark takes about 13 hours to produce from start to finish. Through its distinct ultra-filtration process, quark has a higher pH level, which delivers lower acidity and a much creamier, milder texture.
Quark Nutrition: Quark is made with non-GMO, grass-fed milk, which is naturally low in fat and has up to 16 grams of protein per cup.
