Cheese is a healthy food item with many nutritional benefits. But there are many studies that link dairy products to skin inflammation like acne, eczema, etc. Research shows that dairy products with high saturated fats cause inflammation and not specifically “cheese” alone.

In today’s recipe, this is best served to clients who are not on an anti-inflammation diet. An anti-inflammatory diet is about filling your meals with foods that have been shown to fight inflammation and — just as important — cutting out foods that have been shown to contribute to it.

At S+N , we have our team of Doctors and Nutritionist-Dietitian who can assist you in finding out if you are sensitive to dairy. You can also take the Food Intolerance Test, a sensitivity test that will help you identify which from its 222 food items list can cause an intolerance in your gut which manifests in your skin and overall health.


Burrata is a semi-soft, fresh cheese of Italian origin. The term ‘burrata’ means ‘buttered’ in Italian and describes a variety of cheese-filled with butter or butter and sugar instead of the usual mozzarella shreds and cream. Burrata is a highly prized artisanal cheese dating back to the beginning of the 20th century and is made from a pouch of fresh mozzarella typically filled with fresh mozzarella shreds (called stracciatella) and cream.
