Cheese

Cheese PlateMany consumers are cheese lovers. 

With hundreds of varieties of cheese available, there is an option for almost every palate and diet. But cheese delivers benefits beyond its array of tasty flavors – it is a good source of calcium, protein, phosphorus and other essential nutrients. 

This is why the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans reinforces cheese as a substantial contributor of key nutrients that are important to good health.

Cheese fits quite well into a variety of eating plans because of its versatility and convenience. Some consumers prefer cheese as a snack, appetizer or dessert. 

Cheese is a part of countless breakfast, lunch or dinner recipes. And it complements other nutrient-rich foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
