Healthiest Types of Cheese

Cheese is one of those dairy products that come in hundreds of different forms and flavours. It’s made of acid or bacteria to milk from various farm animals and then aging or processing the solid parts of the milk. Even the nutrition and taste of cheese depend on how it is made.

Here are a couple of the healthiest types of cheese.

1. Mozzarella
