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.

Just remember to read all labels just to be sure.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

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?
