Do you know your cheese? Cheese Platter Guide

The definition of cheese is simply a food made from the pressed curds of milk, firm and elastic or soft and semi-liquid in texture. In short, cheese is a solid food made from milk. Most of us have misunderstanding thinking that cheese is fattening, but actually, cheese is a great source of calcium and protein. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin. According to several studies, cheese could even prevent teeth cavities!

Taleggio Cheese  – Taleggio is a semisoft, washed-rind, smear-ripened Italian cheese that is named after Val Taleggio. The cheese has a thin crust and a strong aroma, but its flavor is comparatively mild with an unusual fruity tang.

Gorgonzola Blue Cheese – Gorgonzola is a veined Italian blue cheese, made from unskimmed cow’s milk. It can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a “bite” from its blue veining.

Queso Manchego – Manchego is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed. Official manchego cheese is to be aged for between 60 days and two years

Queso de Cabra Goat Cheese – Queso de Cabra is a pasteurized Spanish table cheese made from goat’s milk. Aged for approximately 1 month, this cheese has an ivory colored pate and a semi firm texture.

Parmesan Cheese – Parmigiano-Reggiano is a hard, dry cheese made from skimmed or partially skimmed cow’s milk. It has a hard pale-golden rind and a straw-colored interior with a rich, sharp flavor. Their complex flavor and extremely granular texture are a result of the long aging.

Burrata Cheese – Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.

Well, on the other bad sides of cheese, cheese is a high-fat and high-calorie food. Depending on the variety of cheese you eat, you’re getting about 100 calories per ounce and about 6 to 9 grams of fat. But we couldn’t stop you from eating cheese in the restaurant while measuring exact fats. What do we suggest instead? Moderation is the key, our body stills need fat to convert to energy, therefore, a few slices of hard cheese should be good. Otherwise, choose soft cheese as they are 30% lower fats than the hard cheese.

Also, people who are lactose intolerance and they can’t take dairy products such as cheese. Sorry, folks!

Cheese is just like friends, the older u know them, the better and closer we are.
