Milk and dairy products represent valuable nutritional foods, which bring many benefits to the health of the human body. The nutritional quality of sheep's cheese is given by nature as well by the content of essential mineral elements that enter into its composition. Therefore, the evaluation of the nutritional quality, of the sheep's cheese mineral intake is conditioned by knowing the concentrations of the mineral elements that are part of this food. The aim of the paper is to determine the concentrations of some essential mineral macro- and microelements: Ca and Mg, respectively: Fe, Zn and Cu from sheep's cheese and to evaluate the mineral intake of this food product in the recommended daily diet. The sheep's cheese taken in the experiment is well represented in terms of the content of: Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn and Cu, essential mineral elements with a beneficial effect on the body. In the analyzed sheep's cheese were identified high amounts of calcium (4892±275 mg/kg) and magnesium (443±38.64 mg/kg), significant amounts of Zn (22.14±1.52 mg/kg) and Fe (9.78±1.29 mg/kg) and appreciable amounts of Cu (1.07±0.17 mg/kg). The mineral profile of this nutritional food shows the following decreasing trend: Ca>> Mg>> Zn >Fe >> Cu.
