cottage cheese and low-fat dairy products

Hi! I will be travelling to Madeira in 2 weeks and I am on a diet, which consists, among other things, of low-fat dairy products (max. 7% fat). I am interested especially in cottage cheese. Any chance to find it at the supermarkets in Funchal? Any info would be much appreciated.

'Magro' is 'low fat' in Portuguese, and as you can see from this link there are plenty of products - https:/…. There are several Pingo Doce supermarkets around the island, and the other chain is Modelo/Continente, but smaller grocery stores also have low fat products.

Cottage cheese is particularly difficult to find unless you try one of the small (expensive) supermarkets eg Spa , who sometimes cater for English visitors. There are lots of very good local soft cheeses available everywhere.
