Nutritional values

Cheese made from goat's milk is not only impressive from a culinary point of view: on average, it contains only 20 grams of fat and is therefore particularly rich in protein, calcium and vitamin A. By the way: Even people with lactose intolerance can tolerate goat's cheese without any problems.




The choice of goat's cheese is a matter of taste: Chavroux, for example, has a very mild taste, while more hearty and spicy varieties such as Crotin de Chavignol are more popular.
