The aim was to improve nutritional quality of cows’ milk and use it as raw material for mozzarella cheese. Three treatments were tested with 23 healthy animals ranging power: control, palm oil and coconut oil. Collection was performed in 21 days and another after 36 days. Proximate composition (moisture, ash, fat, protein, carbohydrates), sensory, color (CIE L*, a*, b*) and texture were made for mozzarella cheese. The fatty acids (FA) present in mozzarella cheese were determined by chromatography. Saturated fatty acids (SFA) were the most abundant in cheese. The results point that it is feasible to add various fat sources in animal feed for milk and milk products in dairy cows.
