Nutritional Guide

Can something so delicious also be nutritious? The answer is a resounding Yes!

Cheese contains the goodness of a number of essential nutrients, including protein, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B12.

The amount of nutrients in cheese may vary depending on the composition of milk used and also how the cheese is made, but nutrients found in cheese include:

Protein

Important for growth and development, and helping to build and repair tissues in the body.

Calcium

Important for the health of bones and teeth.

Zinc

Can contribute to the structure of skin, assist in wound healing, and also help support immune function.

Phosphorus

Vitamin A

Important for vision and for maintaining the health of skin and bones.

Is cheese fattening?

Well, many foods eaten in enough quantities can be considered “fattening”. Remember, gaining weight depends on the number of calories you eat, balanced by your activity. If you eat a moderate amount of cheese as part of balanced diet and exercise regularly then you can afford to enjoy your cheese!
