Goats cheese is one of the most sought after product among health conscious people. When it comes to most-loved cheeses, goat cheese is always remembered. It is a well known fact that many people are seeking this product considering that there are many brands popping out with their own goat cheese.

Goat cheese is a kind of cheese that is taken from the milk of the goat. Another name of goat cheese is ‘chevre cheese’. Chevre is the French term for the goat. This name came about because it was produced in regions where goats were domesticated and kept. This makes cheese production from the milk of the goat a very convenient endeavor. Most of the cheese lovers actually love goat cheese because of its more favorable contents compared to the other kinds. Actually, the milk of the goat has the same fat contents as that the milk from the cow. However, there are distinct characteristics in the goat cheese that makes it very tasty.

The milk of a goat contains higher contents of medium-chain fatty acids like the caprylic, capric and caproic acids. These help in providing a tart zest. It is found that these acids take their name from the word ‘Capra’ which is the Latin term in turn for the goat. Since its conception, France has been the largest source for goat milk production, more specifically in the areas of Poitou and Loire Valley. These places were claimed as the areas where the Moors first brought the goat as early as the eighth century. There are many varieties today of the French goat cheese. The Picodon, Pouligny Saint-Pierre, Chabis, Chabichou du Poitou, Pyramide and Rocamadour are some of these varieties.

Chevre cheese is best enjoyed when served hot. This is more popularly known as the Chevre chaud, its French name. This is also a perfect companion to various cooking menus, preparations and recipes. Its creamy taste and unique tang can definitely give a refreshing taste. It can even be used to improve the flavors of vegetables.
