Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

My mother-in-law is a lactose intolerant cheese lover, so I'm always on the look out for her.

Aldi is a good place to look for more budget conscious lactose free cheese choices. Their inventory changes frequently, so sometimes you can make some good and unique scores. Also you can also find more gourmet lactose-free cheese options at Jemoli's Gourmet Factory.

Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

Hmmm... I thought cheese had no lactose. And if any, very little. Is there really a point to Lactose free cheese?

Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

Fresh cheeses have much more lactose, and so are useful in lactose-fee forms. I do not have any trouble at all with aged cheeses like gruyere or cheddar, but mozzarella and cream cheese (Philadelphia) create real problems without taking pills.

Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

I'm glad you found some cheeses you can digest! I'm quite severely lactose intolerant but eat all hard cheeses (mainly gruyere, sbrinz, emmentaler). The previous comments suggest lactase tablets, which I also find very effective. It means I can eat just about anything, which is very handy when I have no control over the menu. You can get Lactaid tablets in individual blister-packs that are handy when eating out. I'm Australian and until recently it's been difficult to buy them there, so friends usually bring them back from the US for me, or I order online from the US (the price could be 80% cheaper than here in Switzerland: see www.drugstore.com as an example). Just make sure you don't have anything posted here because the customs fees and taxes are exorbitant - many people send things to friends in neighbouring countries instead.

Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

FWIW, we were just in an Aldi that was featuring as a new item 3 varieties (natural, Italian herb, and another) of sliced goat cheese that was labelled lactose free.

Re: Lactose intolerant....Lactose free cheese?

Lactose pills can also be ordered from Wal-Mart in the USA for about $8 for 40 pills.
