Goat cheese infused with fish oil
You heard it here, goat cheese infused with fish oil. Is the goal to make an extra healthy cheese? We're not sure. Tell us what you think:
It may smell fishy, but a team of US scientists is working on creating a goat cheese made with fish oil, an underused but health-packed food.
In a study published in the February issue of the Journal of Food Science, goat cheese was shown to be a successful carrier of fish oil -- an underused ingredient because of its strong odor and aftertaste and a finicky food that tends to oxidize quickly.
Fish oil has more balanced proportions of omega-3 fatty acids compared to other sources like flax and algal oil, the researchers said.
