You Can Eat This Cheese If You’re Lactose-Free

Cabot Cheddar: it’s a naturally lactose-free cheese, containing 0g of lactose per serving.

Lactose is a natural sugar found in milk and dairy products that some folks have trouble digesting. If you’re lactose intolerant, have a lactose-sensitivity, or you cook or shop for someone else that does, you might be surprised to know that our natural aging process actually removes the lactose from Cabot Cheddar.

Most of the lactose present in milk is in the whey, which is then separated from the curds during the cheesemaking process. The natural aging process then breaks down any remaining lactose that could be leftover. Translation: you get to enjoy lactose-free Cabot Cheddars from a number of our collections! (Yep, we’re psyched about this fact too!)

Check out the classics like Vermont Sharp, our flavored options like Habanero, and our Legacy line with cheddars like the Farmhouse Reserve.

Even better news for you? Other styles of aged cheese, like parmesan are also lactose-free. (Note: aging is the key.)

The easiest way to check if a cheese is lactose-free is to read the Nutrition Facts panel. That’s where you can find just how much sugar is in the cheese. If there is no sugar—read, zero grams or “0g”—on the label, there is no lactose in that cheese. And you’ll only find zero grams of sugar, across the board, on Cabot Cheddars. Now, time to rest easy and break out that two-pound block of Cabot Cheddar.
