I was told by my nutritionist that cottage cheese was not good for me because it has whey in it (don't know why) and in fact it does make me sick. HOWEVER I am also Lactose Intolerant, and now can only have a little bit of dairy any day, and would prefer to save that for milk in my coffee, so usually don't have much cheese. Makes life easier.

I eat cheese all the time and have never had a problem. The diet recommended by www.csaceliacs.org says in regards to cheese:
All aged hard cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss, Edam, and Parmesan are okay. Check ingredient list on cottage cheese, cream cheese, and all pasteurized, processed cheese; avoid cheeses with vegetable gum, food starch and preservatives not defined by a gluten-free source.
I must admitt I haven't checked my cottage cheese, but I've had no problems eating it. I eat Cottage Cheese at the local Souper Salad buffet.
Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.
God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know itís me.
I have read from several sources that the veins in bleu cheese could be formed by wheat-based mold (although most US-manufactured bleu is produced synthetically without wheat. I avoid it anyway, but use cheddar and swiss cheese regularly with no apparent problem.
I just started the GF lifestyle this past week, and I have a ton of questions.
My mom has been doing a lot of research, and came across a source that said that processed cheese and aged cheese were NOT ok, but natural cheeses are. I understand the whole thin about processed cheese, but why not aged cheese? Does this mean that Blue Cheese is out?
