I think it's sort of sad when you sell claim that one of your brands of cheese is "100% natural," implying that your other lines are not.

Lots of types of cheese are very low in lactose. The longer they age the less lactose is left. None of Kraft's cheeses are aged (except the cardboard in the green bottle).

While Kraft does offer a small line of "organic" cheese, I can't believe they're any different than regular Kraft cheeses. Certainly not worth paying extra $$ for. I do buy processed cheeses to shred over tacos or into a cheese sauce, but not to snack on or enjoy as "cheese".

As far as the lactose issue - "organic" has absolutely NOTHING to do with the lactose content of a cheese.

You may be thinking of Kraft's new line of "Activia" cheese, which is meant to be used to regulate intestinal problems. That may very well have 0% lactose. But it certainly has absolutely nothing to do with being organic.

I wasn't thinking of anything It was the woman from a newsgroup who had mentioned about Krafts being organic and I wanted to know if she was correct.
