As we can see, although the main nutrients are the same, depending on the specimen they vary considerably, therefore, at the moment of choosing with foundation it is always important to pay attention to the nutritional composition of the cheeses .

Which to choose?

Taking into account the nutritional composition of different cheeses and the needs or objectives of each one, we will choose one or the other cheese, for example, if we want to lose weight we will choose low-fat cheeses, rich in proteins and calcium that satisfy and take care of health while we thin.

If on the other hand we seek to complement our training, we will look for a cheese rich in proteins, as well as calcium and potassium .

For those seeking to take care of the health of the heart , it is not only advisable to opt for cheeses with less fat, but also, with a moderate sodium content and rich in potassium, calcium and vitamin D if possible.

Of course, in general, the heaviest cheeses are those that concentrate the most fat and, therefore, the most calories. In addition, they may contain other nutrients in greater proportion such as protein, calcium and sodium, so, when choosing, we will have to place on the scale which nutrient matters most to us.

Otherwise, it is always good to know that we can consume all types of cheeses, but the portion of cured cheese is smaller than that of fresh or tender cheese , so, taking care of the portions , we can choose different types of cheeses to include in our diet.
