What kind of cheese to choose, comparing Quark Mozzarella Feta Halloumi Brie Babybel Cottage and Goat cheese

To all the cheese lovers is not easy to cut down on the fat intake without cutting down on cheese plus another thing to consider is the amount of salt and cholesterol.


As I said previously portions and frequency are important but with the right choices, we can still enjoy one of the most delicious product. so let's find some alternatives.


Pros: Good source of Calcium, Vitamin D and Protein especially for vegetarians

  • QUARK: only 30 Kcal per 50 gr and almost fat and salt free (0.2-0.1 gr) usually you can get 250 gr for only 1.25£


  • MOZZARELLA: 1 Oz contains 85 Kcal even less if you choose the light mozzarella, also the salt intake is not high


  • GOAT CHEESE: highly nutritious with only 75 kcal per Oz and not high in salt

  • Low-fat COTTAGE CHEESE: half a cup contains 80 kcal and just 1 gr of fat but high in salt

  • FETA GREEK CHEESE: around 70 kcal per Oz again high in salt so not recommended in case of high blood pressure 

  • HALLOUMI: 120 kcal per 50 gr could something to have just once in a while to not get bored of the same low far cheese all the time

  • BRIE: 80 kcal per 30 gr here is more about portion control to not end up having half or more of the package

  • BABYBEL LIGHT: only 42 kcal per piece
