What’s the difference between Feta and Goat Cheese?

It’s true that feta can be made from goat milk, but feta is not the same as goat cheese. Feta cheese will have more texture and tangy flavor, while the goat cheese is milder in taste and more creamy in texture. You can, however, substitute goat cheese with feta.
