Health Benefits Of Cheese

Health Benefits Of Cheese

Everyone loves cheese except maybe those who may be lactose intolerant or have other issues related to diary products. Cheese is a great low carb snack that fills you up so you stay full longer.  Cheese pairs well with many foods, fruits, and on sandwiches. Cheese is added to many dishes. There are even fudge recipes made with cheese.  

Cheese making has a long history.  Explorers on expeditions have found cheese in the Egyptian tombs. They mastered the craft of making cheese, so cheese was being produced much further back in history for people to consume.  The recipes were handed down generation after generation. 

Nutrition Of Cheese 

Cheese contains calcium, fat, proteins.  If the cows that produced the milk used to make the cheese are free range grass fed cows, goats, or other animals the cheese will contain the most nutrition.  Cheese has been found to contain vitamins such as A, B-12, K-2, and omega 3 fatty acids. Cheese contains small amounts of vitamin D which helps the body absorb calcium more efficiently. 

I discovered information about cheese that is not often seen or spoken about. 

There is an incredible amount of information about cheese and the calcium content of the cheese in relation to the ph. level of the cheese. Let's go over briefly what ph. is without going into a science lecture so everyone is on the same understanding about ph. I'll be brief. 

Ph means potential hydrogen which is a unit of measurement for ph.  Ph. is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. 7on the ph. scale is neutral ph.  0-6 is acidic, 8-14 alkaline or base.

Here is a chart to give you an idea of the range of ph. levels.

The food scientists discovered that the lower the ph. level of the cheese the lower the calcium content.  

Calcium content in cheese varies depending on the type of cheese you purchase for consumption.  The higher the ph. level of the cheese, the higher amount of calcium in the cheese. If you are eating cheese to increase your calcium intake for healthy bones and teeth, you should look for certain types of cheese for higher amounts of calcium which in turn indicates higher ph levels in the cheese.

Here's a technique to learn how to determine if your cheese has low ph. and low calcium or the opposite. If your cheese selection is crumbly and easily broken, this indicates low ph. and will not contain a lot of calcium in the cheese. This is also an indication of a weak protein structure internally in the cheese for the cheese to crumble easily.  Think Blue cheese or Swiss Cheese.

 Higher calcium content cheeses are more elastic in texture like cheddar cheese.  Some, but not all Cheddar cheese have a higher ph level as well as more calcium content.  Another indicator is normally Cheddar cheese does not crumble and is more flexible and bendable. 

Enjoy your cheese.
