Surprise! It’s National Cheese Day

plate of different cheeses

Say cheese, because it’s National Cheese Day!

Did you know that cheese is good for oral care? This dairy product is a healthy alternative and a preventive measure against cavities.

According to research, eating cheese increases the PH levels in the mouth, helping your mouth produce more saliva that rinses away food particles. The higher the PH level, the more teeth are protected against dental erosions. Also, different compounds found in cheese such as calcium, adhere to the tooth enamel and help protect teeth from acidic foods.

Why Cheese Is Good

Cheese is a great source of calcium. It’s also a good source of other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, Vitamin B12, zinc, and phosphorous. Unfortunately, cheese gets a bad rep. People tend to think cheese is loaded with fat and makes people gain weight.

According to Healthline, the healthiest cheese are mozzarella, blue cheese, feta, cottage cheese, ricotta, Parmesan, Swiss, cheddar, and goat. You can read all about the nutritional facts through their article!
