Lactose intolerance & raw milk cheeses

Posted

Our first online order of the season came through last night and it is from a woman who is lactose intolerant but can eat our cheese. That's great news!

There are a couple of main reasons for this: (1) Most of the lactose (sugar) in cheesemaking is present in the whey, and when the whey is drained from the curds, the lactose goes with it. (2) Since our cheeses are aged at least 60 days, any remaining lactose is digested by the lactase enzymes present. An aged cheese has little to no lactose left.(The fact that we use raw milk helps also, since pasteurization destroys lactase enzymes and a host of other beneficial things.) 

People who are lactose-intolerant often find they can drink and enjoy raw milk as well.

If you would like to have our cheeses shipped to you in Texas, check out our website, www.veldhuizencheese.com. Or come to the farm for cheese, raw milk, pastured beef, butter, and more!
