Goat Cheese Health Benefits

Goat Cheese is widely known for its unique taste and flavor and has some advantages over cow’s milk.  Many people are not tolerant of dairy products and cow’s cheese, but goat cheese actually doesn’t make problems with digestion, unlike cow’s cheese.  The reason why goat’s cheese is easier to be digested is that it contains smaller fat globules than cow’s milk.   Also, it contains much less lactose than cow’s milk so it is great for lactose intolerant people.
