Scientists say that soft cheeses are less caloric than hard. 30 grams of ricotta, for example, contains about 50 calories, 30 grams of feta cheese – 75 calories and 30 grams of mozzarella cheese – 85 calories. But the same amount of Swiss cheese already contains 108 calories and 30 grams of cheddar can detect all 114 calories. To understand the same calories (just over 100) has a plate of bean soup, which apparently will provide you with a more serious and long-lasting feeling of fullness.
