Fewer Calories Than Most Cheeses
Feta cheese contains about 33 percent fewer calories than most cheeses, but has a much stronger flavor than many other low-calorie cheeses, such as mozzarella.
The fat content of feta cheese is about a third less than that of most cheeses, particularly soft or "ripened" cheeses. Furthermore, low-fat feta is available in many stores, though at the sacrifice of some flavor and the cheese's natural texture.
High in Calcium
A single ounce of feta cheese contains nearly 140 mg. of calcium, making it one of the best dietary sources of calcium, essential to the development and health of bones and tooth enamel.
May Aid in Abdominal Fat Loss
Studies indicate that five servings of cheese in general per day can aid in the loss of abdominal fat and that a high calcium diet may contribute to the breakdown of fat cells. In addition, feta cheese specifically is rich in conjugated linoleic acid, a fatty acid and antioxidant that may aid in abdominal fat loss. The resultant loss of body fat lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
