When compared to cow's milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.
Goat cheeses are easier to digest than cow's milk cheeses because the fat cells are smaller, thereby more closely resembling human milk. This also allows the fat to be broken down and more easily assimilated. Many people who are lactose intolerant or have other milk-related allergies can eat cheeses made from goat milk.

Ways To Enjoy Soft Goat Cheese:

  • Spread on toast or bagels.
  • Substitute for cream cheese in dips.
  • Swirl or layer with pesto to spread on crackers.
  • Top green salads with crumbled cheese, or with slices briefly warmed in the oven.
  • Use goat cheese in lasagna.
  • For a simple pasta sauce, mix goat cheese with pesto.
  • Slice goat cheese, warm in the oven, arrange in a pool of chocolate sauce on a dessert plate, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  • Use in place of sour cream on baked potatoes.
  • Arrange whole or sliced plain goat cheese on a serving plate. Sprinkle with fresh or dried herbs of your choice and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil or vinaigrette. Serve with crackers or bread.
  • Place two whole or split a 5-ounce goat cheese round in a pint jar. Add garlic, cloves, parsley, a few peppercorns, a spring of thyme, and 1/2 of a bay leaf. Cover all with extra-virgin olive oil and let sit for a few days. Serve with crackers or bread
