Cheese help! Page 1 of 1    
Even in reduced fat cheese around 50% of the calories are from fat. In "regular" cheese it's 70% or more. I'm talking about cheeses like colby, etc. Not cottage cheese.

I've tried the low-fat cheeses and don't like them. I'd rather do without and find other things to eat that I like. Everything in moderation. I'd rather have good cheese less often than cheese that tastes like cardboard frequently.

Look into swiss , parmesan, goat's cheese and aged cheeses like cheddar, there suppose to be low in lactose.

That saturated fat in cheese is good for you

Try googling about lactose content of cheese. There's a little information out there but not lots.

What I found is that in cow's milk, the lactose is primarily in the whey. Firmer, dryer cheeses that are aged contain less lactose. Most of the whey is drained out and the lactose that remains changes composition during aging.

Where do you find buffalo cheese??? Never even heard of that.

Mozzarella di bufala is mozzarella made of water buffalo milk. I've seen it in Whole Foods. It's *very* expensive. Personally, I wouldn't buy it. I've had it in Italy, though, and it's really nice.
