    Cheese fat differences?

    Can anyone point me to a source of information about the fat content of cheese from different source animals? I'm looking to cut down on my saturated fat intake but love real cheese. So I'm curious about the differences between cow, goat, and sheep's milk cheese. I love them all, but could be persuaded to love one a bit more if it were healthier.

    Id also guess that hard cheese has less fat than soft cheese. Try some shredded parmesan
    as a substitute.

    The first rule of flats is You don't talk about flats!

    It seems that goat has lower fat and overall Calories than cow but there are also cow cheeses that are better than others.

    Sorry it's not that scientific.

    No. We're talkin wedges of real cheese covered in mold and handed to you by a fella with mud on his boots, not Kraft or Sargento from the refrigerated section. Hard cheeses usually have a lower moisture count.

    Perfect! It's scientific enough for a non-scientist. So, Sheep is much fattier than goat which is much fattier than cow. Damn.

    Thanks Nickel!

    TEdious to use but very comprehensive:

    I like to use Feta because it's very strong and therefore i use alot less of it.
