Cheese, Goat, Plain Organic, Shiloh Farms
4 oz. cheese in a tub
Chevre is the French name for goat cheese. Chevre is lower in calories than cheese made from cow’s milk. It is easier to digest, as it contains short-chain fatty acids, and people with a lactose intolerance can usually eat goat cheese. It contains calcium, phosphorus, and minerals as in cow’s milk, but has higher levels of potassium, vitamin A, thiamin, and niacin. The body utilizes goat cheese more like a sugar than a fat, and the body is able to convert this food into energy. There are studies theorizing that the consumption of goat cheese may actually reduce cholesterol and increase bone density.
Although cow’s milk and goat’s milk have similar overall fat contents, the higher proportion of medium-chain fatty acids such as caproic, caprylic and capric acid in goat’s milk contributes to the characteristic tart flavor of goat’s milk cheese. These fatty acids take their name from the Latin for goat, capra.
