Fat Per Ounce in Goat Cheese

Like cheese from cows milk, goat cheese can vary widely in its fat content. As a general rule of thumb, softer goat cheeses are made with skimmed goat milk and are lower in fat. These are in the 4 to 5 gram of fat per ounce range. The semi-soft goat cheeses are about 6-8 grams of fat per ounce.
