Is cheese protein?

An important part of health and fitness is our intake. Often we break down food intake into categories of protein, carbs and fat.

Certain foods contain different quantities of these three fuel types. When it comes to cheese, what is it made up of?

Cheese itself is not protein but is made up of some protein, fats and carbs.

It also depends on what type of cheese we’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 you’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, you’ll notice different calorie content.

For every 100 grams of this cheese you’ll get 11.12 grams of protein and 4.3 grams of fat.

Therefore it depends on the type of Cheese you’re referring to.
