CHEESE FOR THE LACTOSE INTOLERANT

Please note: Everyone has a different level of severity of any problem. What works for one doesn't always work for another. However for those who have somewhat of a problem with lactose intolerance this might
be helpful information. You might want to only try a small amount first or discuss with your doctor before trying these cheeses!

Here are some facts about cheeses and lactose:
  • Cheese doesn't contain as much lactose as other dairy products.
  • Most ripened cheeses, ie cheddar and Swiss, contain about 95% less lactose than whole milk.
  • Processed cheese, ie American and cream cheese, contain only a small amount of lactose.
  • Aged cheeses, ie Parmesan and Romano, contain almost no lactose at all.
  • Check the nutrition label on cheese before buying. If the amount of sugar is listed as 0 grams, that cheese contains basically no significant amount of lactose.
