One kilo of Gouda contains about 250gm proteins, 300gm fat and 440gm water.
Cheese also contains the vitamins A, B and D, as well as minerals important
to our bodies such as phosphorus and calcium. Vitamin D and calcium help to
keep our bones from decalcification, an ailment especially prevelent in old
age and often the cause of fractures. 100gm of cheese a day is sufficient
for our daily intake of this mineral. 70gm cheese contains approximately the
same amount of proteins as 100gm meat. Cheese is easily digestible as the
proteins and fats have been partially decomposed by bacteria during production.
