Is it true that cheeses contain as much proteins as meat?!

In general, yes, this is true. On the whole, cheeses provide us with a quantity of proteins that’s equal to that contained in meat. It is good to note as well that protein content in cheeses varies, as an average, between 15 and 30 g in 100 g and such content varies depending on the type of cheese considered. We should also note that hard cheeses contain more proteins than soft cheeses. Thus, we can see that cheeses are an important source of high biological value animal proteins the content of which varies depending on their moisture content.

On the other hand, it is worthy to note too that cheeses and meat are foods rich in fat whose content varies depending on the type of cheese or meat chosen. For this reason, it is always advisable to choose the lightest cheese in terms of fat and the leanest cuts of meat so that we could maintain diversification as part of a balanced food plan.
