Organic cheese? As opposed to inorganic cheese?

Kraft makes organic cheese?? Isn't that straying pretty far from their core business?

I can't imagine why organic cheese would be any better for lactose intolerant people.

I think you need to provide us with more direct information. What you're saying doesn't make sense.

I don't think that organic makes a difference in the amount of lactic acid in the cheese. lactic acid is going to be in it regardless, as a bi-product of dairy, and to control the tartness.

Someone in another food forum posted this :
I just found out that Kraft makes many cheeses that are 0% lactose
free. They also have organic cheeses, and they can be found in the cheese
section of most supermarkets. The ones I successfully tried are Kraft
Natural Shredded Mozzarella, Natural Shredded Sharp Cheddar, Natural Colby,
and natural cheddar - both in the block.

The back of all these say "contains 0g of lactose per serving

see, I dunno if it is just me, but 0% lactose free sounds off, like it has 100% of it?

100% lactose free sounds better.

yup, Tattrat, i was thinking that was a typo, too.

Ladycook, i think the reason people were getting confused here was that "organic" and "lactose free" have exactly NOTHING to do with each other. organic would imply that the milk for the cheese comes from cows that were fed only grass/grains, with no growth promoters, antibiotics, hormones, etc. lactose free involves removing this particular sugar from the milk, and is something that can be done regardless of where the actual milk came from.

and no, to be honest, while i haven't tried the ones you mention, kraft cheese generally doesn't do it for me. i'm a cheese snob so if i needed something without the lactose issues (for my cow-dairy intolerant friends), i'd end up with a very nice goat or sheep cheese.

I guess the woman who posted that in another forum doesn't know what she is talking about , which is why I asked here.
