Standard cheese?

What kind of cheese you talking about?

Standard cheese - that's what we have here in Europen (Edam, Gouda etc) none of that processed crap that is commonplace in the US of A.

As far as macronutrients, virtually all traditional cheese has virtually zero carbs, and a good proportion of both fat and protein.

Last but not least - Reinier invest a few Guilders or Euros in a decent book on the composition of foods.

If you don't know the macronutrient breakdown of an item as commonplace as cheese you are severely devoid of nutritional knowledge! Sorry for the flaming.

cottage cheese is a fresh milk curd. it's not aged or anything, and kinda like a fresher, softer ricotta.

my usa cheese has 4 g of carbs for a little slice.

Per ounce of cheese, there is like 10g fat, 6-8g protein, and maybe 1g carbs.

The protein content kinda depends on the cheese, as does the saturated fat content. I think.

Isnt brie different from say, Mizithra?
