Cheese itself is not protein but is made up of some protein, fats and carbs.
It also depends on what type of cheese weâ€™re talking about. If we take Cheddar Cheese for an example, a typical calorie breakdown would look like the following:
For every 28 grams of Cheddar youâ€™ll get roughly 114 calories.
Which break down into about 9.4 grams of fat, 0.36 grams of carbs and 7.06 grams of protein. The total percentage breakdown is then 1% carbs, 72% fat and 27% protein.
If we take Cottage Cheese, youâ€™ll notice different calorie content.
For every 100 grams of this cheese youâ€™ll get 11.12 grams of protein and 4.3 grams of fat.
Therefore it depends on the type of Cheese youâ€™re referring to.
