Lots of people ask me ‘is goats cheese healthy’
Goats cheese is a nutritious healthy alternative.
Goats cheese, like goats milk, is easier on the human digestive system this is often found with ewes milk cheeses too.
Goats cheese is also lower in calories, cholesterol and fat, in addition goats milk is a great source of calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin K, Phosphorus, niacin and thiamin.
According to research by Epidemiologist, Serge Renaud, goat cheese does not seem to be implicated as a cause of heart disease. He models his own diet on that of Crete, which has the lowest rate of heart disease in the western world. Their diet is heavy in fruits, vegetables, and grains and they eat goat cheese! So, when customers ask us ‘Is goat cheese good for you?’ we say a resounding YES!
We offer a huge range of goats cheeses from ash covered to herb and raisin covered even goats cheese washed champagne…..so what better way to spice up that January salad!
