What is the cholesterol content of goat cheese?

Dr. Gourmet Says...

An ounce of semisoft goat cheese has 22 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol.

There is an easy way to find out about the nutrition content of any food. The USDA National Nutrient Database is at this link:

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

By entering an ingredient and following the steps this website will report the complete nutritional values of any ingredient and many prepared foods.

Thanks for writing.
