Goat cheese, or chèvre (from the French word for goat), is cheese made out of the milk of goats.
When it comes to fat and calories, goat cheese has the advantage over cheese made from cow’s milk. Goat cheese clocks in at eighty calories and six grams of fat per ounce, compared to cow’s milk cheese, which generally has around 100 calories and 10 g of fat per ounce. This means goat cheese is the better choice for staying fit and thin.
There are five grams of protein in a single ounce of goat cheese. The amount of calcium in goat cheese can vary from around forty grams in soft cheese up to 240 grams in hard goat cheese.
