Calorie Table for Goat Meat, Milk & Cheese
Please note: all calorie values are approximate

A three ounce serving of roast goat contains approximately 122 kilocalories, of which about 23.5 calories come from fat. (By comparison, very lean beef steak contains 170 calories per 3oz serving, of which 63 come from fat.) Goats meat is a low fat alternative to red meats, like beef or lamb, and is an excellent food choice for anyone following a calorie-controlled diet.

Nutritional Information About Goat Meat

  • Chevron (goats meat) contains comparatively higher values of iron, potassium and thiamine than other meats. (Eastridge and Johnson, 1990). Specifically, a serving size of 100g of goat meat includes the following micronutrients: potassium (209mg), selenium (8.8mcg) and zinc (4mg).
  • Goat meat is also a high quality protein source, with minimal cholesterol intake risk. (USDA).
  • Although goats milk is low in folate, it supplies all calcium requirements and is a useful option for those who are allergic to cow's milk.

Nutritional Information About Fat Content Of Goat Meat

  • Goat meat is 50-65 percent lower in fat than similarly prepared beef, but has a similar protein content. (USDA).
  • It contains up to 45 per cent less saturated fat than chicken, even with the skin removed. (USDA).
  • Goat meat has 40 percent less saturated fat than chicken (without skin) and 850 percent less than beef. (USDA).
  • The cholesterol content of chevron (goat meat) is similar to that of beef, lamb, pork, and chicken and much lower than some dairy, poultry products and some seafoods. (Pond and Maner, 1984; Potchoiba et al., 1990; Stromer et al., 1966; Terrell et al., 1969; Park et al., 1991).

How To Save Calories

A useful guide to cutting calories is to avoid calorie-dense foods that are high in fat or sugar. These foods are too easily eaten. After a large main course we are not usually hungry, yet it's easy to eat a large serving of high-calorie ice cream, or a creamy dessert. By comparison, it's much more difficult to eat 4-5 large apples. Also, dietary fat has more than twice the calories (9 per gram) than carbs or protein (4 per gram), while excessive sugar can raise blood-glucose levels too rapidly and leave you hungry within a couple of hours. A better way to cut calories (and still feel full) is to choose high-fiber foods, such as vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains. These foods tend to have a lower caloric content, and take longer to digest thus giving us a feeling of fullness for longer.
