There are nearly one hundred different varieties of string cheese on the market, and these are just the ones we know about. With so many types of string cheeses it is difficult to pinpoint an exact number of calories in string cheese. The ballpark figure is somewhere between 50-120 calories in one string cheese.
One of the biggest factors in calorie content is the type of cheese. Most low-calorie string cheeses are made of mozzarella cheese. Mozzarella is low in calories and fat making it a wise choice for those looking for a healthy snack in between meals. Most mozzarella string cheeses range from 50-80 calories per cheese. The other factor that causes the calorie content to shift is the type of milk used in the cheese. Some low-cal options contain skim milk rather than 2% or whole milk. The type of milk used can cause the calories to shift in excess of 50 calories per stick.
No matter what variety of string cheese, the snack is low in carbohydrate and high in protein. Sting cheese is a great snack to pack to work or grab out of convenience. The low number of calories also makes it ideal for those trying to lose weight and are looking for a convenient snack to keep on hand. String cheese is rich in calcium and adds to the daily allowance recommended by the FDA.
