Q. You say that fresh mozzarella cheese has 87 calories per serving and is 24% fat. What does that fat translate to in grams per serving?

A. Well, one ounce equals 28.35 grams, so 24% fat would translate to 6.8 grams of fat. The cheese referred to in our earlier answer, by the way, is the fresh mozzarella produced and sold nationally by The Mozzarella Company in Dallas, Texas. We have since come across another brand, Mozzarella Fresca, which is sold in many grocery stores and is a somewhat "lighter" mozzarella. It has 64 calories in a one-ounce serving and 4.29 grams of fat.
