Cheese contains nutrients such as protein and calcium. The high-quality protein in cheese provides the body with essential building blocks for strong muscles. Cheese is an important source of calcium, one of the nutrients that is lacking in the American diet. According to government statistics, dietary intake for both men and women falls short of recommendations, but especially for women. Groups of most concern include boys ages 9–13, girls ages 9–18, women over 51 years and men over 70 years.
Other important nutrients found in cheese are phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin B12. These nutrients are essential for bone health, wound healing, eye and skin health and the production of red blood cells.
