What in the World is Neufchatel?

You've seen it in the dairy case, right next to the cream cheese - Neufchatel cheese.  But, what exactly is it?  It's not cream cheese even though it looks similar.

Neufchatel is a fresh cheese that's lighter and moister than cream cheese with about one-third less fat.  Because of it's higher water content, it's best not to sub Neufchatel for cream cheese in baked dishes, but if you're looking to lighten up your morning bagel or a creamy dip, it's a good choice.

Oh, and the correct pronunciation?  Say:  NEW-sha-tell.
