Cheese is a great source of calcium, fat, and protein. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B-12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin.

Cheese made from the milk of 100 percent grass-fed animals is the highest in nutrients and also contains omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K-2.

However, cheese is often high in saturated fat and salt.

This means eating too much could lead to high cholesterol and high blood pressure, increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease.

If you have type 2 diabetes, it’s fine to eat cheese—although some types are better than others. Cheese may even help you manage your weight and blood sugar, but keep calories and portion sizes in mind.

The cheese you choose to eat makes a difference in your diabetes control and overall health.
