Types of Carbohydrates in Cheese

Most of the people are not aware of the fact that cheese is not just a healthy food, but it also has carbohydrates in cheese. Cheese is basically a milk product, made by coagulation of casein in wide varieties of shapes, textures and flavors, and even depending on the rennet used for curdling milk. It contains fats and proteins from milk, most commonly the milk of cow, goat, buffalo, or sheep, usually with some addition of fat. But the fats and proteins present in cheese are very minor when compared to that of the fat present in meats.


A normal serving of cheese is about 60 calories, whereas meat may contain up to one hundred calories per serving, making cheese slightly less harmful than meat in terms of total calories consumed. However, the nutritional value of cheese is more than that of meats, especially with regards to protein and fat. It is very rich in calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, D, E, B, and K. In addition, cheese contains a high amount of nutrients that are essential for good health, such as Vitamin D, riboflavin, folic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. All these are necessary for maintaining good health. Besides, cheese is also rich in essential fatty acids that are important to maintain the heart healthy.

Carbohydrates in cheese are mainly found in two forms, in solids or as liquid. Some examples of solids are cream cheese and cottage cheese. A small glass of milk is often enough for a person to take in one gram of carbohydrates in a day. One cup of cottage cheese has the same amount of carbohydrates as a medium-sized cake or a whole pound of ice cream. The best way to take in carbohydrates in this is to replace it with other sources of nutrition, such as fruits, vegetables, rice, pasta, and seeds.

One of the interesting nutrition facts about yogurt is that it contains carbohydrates as well as protein, which make it a good source of both. If you are interested in taking in carbohydrates in cheese, you can choose to buy low-fat or fat-free yogurt.

Moreover, milk provides protein, which is great for the muscles. To get the most out of your dairy products, choose low-fat or fat-free versions. However, you need to be careful with certain brands of low-fat yogurt, because there are some that contain high levels of carbohydrates, which can be bad for your diet plan. It would be better if you choose plain non-fat yogurt.

Another food that contains carbohydrates in cheese is cream cheese, which is commonly used for low-fat and low-calorie snacks and treats. Unlike milk, cream cheese does not have any calories.
