Nutritional Information of Cheese

The great news is that cheese not only tastes good, it is also an integral part of the healthy diet. Moreover, recent studies have proved that calcium, present in milk, and highly concentrated in cheese, can even help you lose weight compared with just cutting calories alone. For people on low-carb diets, such as South Beach Diet and Atkins®, cheese is highly recommended as it is very low in carbohydrates.

Cheese also contains a great amount of important nutrients needed for good health, such as quality fats, proteins, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins (especially A, beta carotene, and B). It is an important — and delicious — element of a complete and balanced diet.
