It is made from whey of sheep, goat or cow. Urdă is produced by heating the whey resulting from the draining of any type of cheese. It is often made into molds to the shape of a half sphere. The paste is finely grained, silky and palatable. It contains 18 grams of protein per 100 grams.

Some Romanian sources claim urda to be a traditional Romanian dairy product. In Romania, it is used especially in the preparation of several desserts as clătită and Placinta cu Brânza. Urda is also traditionally prepared in Serbia, notably in the southern region of Pirot, Macedonia and Hungary.

Urdă is similar to Ricotta in the way it is produced.
