Thanks for that info Caprinequeen. Maybe that's why when I eat cheese I don't have issues with it cause I mainly eat the sharp cheddar.

I'm not in the majority on blue cheese. I like it. I do have to be in the mood for it however.

Here is a link to an interesting article I read about the amount of lactose in different kinds of cheese. Basically the longer it is aged the less lactose it has.

I love blue cheese and the Canadian Celiac Ass. did a study last year. They found gluten only in the samples that declared wheat as an ingredient.
I haven't had a problem with it since I found out about the study, didn't try before becuase was told all had gluten in them.

Kraft and Tillamook(Oregon brand)shredded cheeses are GF.

I eat cheese a lot and never have issues with it. Not even blue cheese. Heavy cream, regular cow's milk, half and half, and some ice creams I do however.

I know that Sargento use potato starch in their shredded cheeses to prevent any caking. So I usually use that. A lot of other preshredded cheeses use flour for anti-caking.

And as mentioned blue cheese is not gluten free. I have never seen any that was gf, but it's possible. I don't like it, so I never think about it.

I seem to recall reading that gluten & lactose intolerance go hand-in-hand a lot of the time. I find that almost every time I go to a restaurant and ask about gluten free they also ask me about dairy free needs - or sometimes, assume that I don't want dairy. :( I like cheese...

NO! Blue cheese has gluten. There are some versions that do not, so you have to look for them.

I personally do not like blue cheese, so not an issue for me!

If it lists an anti-caking agent on the ingredients and doesn't specify what it is, you have to contact the company or don't eat it. Some do specify what it is, some don't. I got sick from one that was unspecified because I didn't look at the ingredients until after I was not feeling right.

Thanks for the info! How do you know if the anti-caking is gluten?

Well, I think MOST cheese is but I would never say ALL. The more likey sources of gluten are processed cheeses where they might add flour or something as a filler or the other thing is shredded cheeses have "anti-caking agents" which can be gluten.

HI everyone! So, I went out of town shopping and ate at a eat'n'park and chose from the celiac friendly menu. The waitress had some questions for me ... cheese... Is a ll cheese gluten free? I read every label of everyhting I get even if it says gluten free. Kraft cheese etc ... do not list gluten ingredients. Tell me is all cheese gluten free?
