Cheese, being a derivative of milk, has all the benefits from a nutritional point of view. It contains minerals such as calcium and phosphorus for bone and mind health, but also magnesium, potassium and zinc. They are also a concentrate of vitamins A, B, B12 and D and proteins. Furthermore, depending on the variety of cheese, there is also salt and fats of which we are so terrified. It goes without saying that if you choose a tastier and more seasoned cheese, you will need to drastically reduce the quantities compared to a lighter variety. Among those classifiable as ‘light’ in all respects there are cow’s milk ricotta, some types of spreadable cheese and cottage cheese. In fact, these provide less than a hundred calories for every hectogram consumed.
Then there is the intermediate category, that of cheeses that contain on average between two hundred and three hundred calories per one hundred gram portion.
This category includes mozzarella, robiola and stracchino. We go up again to meet the cheeses that bring between three hundred and four hundred calories for every hundred grams consumed: they are parmesan, pecorino, grana padano and asiago. At the top of the list of the most caloric cheeses of all are caciocavallo and sbrinz, with a range of over four hundred calories. Here, then, in summary, are the five dairy products that you could include in your diet, always with the advice of your specialist, because they are lighter and therefore less harmful to the figure. As anticipated there are ricotta, reduced calorie spreadable cheeses and cottage cheese. To which you can easily add mozzarella and robiola, preferable to stracchino for the amount of salt present. We just have to wish you a good appetite1
