Goat cheese is also richer in calcium and protein, and has the added nutritional benefits of naturally occurring vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin K, phosphorus, niacin and thiamin.
What makes goat cheese easier to digest? Although the levels of lactose in goat cheese and cow’s milk cheese are similar, the fat molecules in goat milk products are smaller and the fatty acid chains are shorter, making these products easier to digest. Even for people who are not necessarily lactose intolerant, goat cheese can be easier to digest than other dairy products.
