Updated July 30, 2007
I can't count how many people have written me asking for real cheese that contains no lactose.
Even though most aged cheese has little or no lactose, some people are still concerned about that residual amount left. Well, worry no longer. I've found a source.
Lifetime brand cheese, which is available nationally, has just added a new line of fat-free cheeses that they have labeled lactose free. No explanation of how they achieved this feat, unfortunately the labels are remarkably uninformative but the cheeses come in small block packages and in at least three flavors: Cheddar, Jalapeno Jack, and Mozzarella.
