I am lactose intolerant, but I am also very sensitive to whey. I can get away with eating cheese especially aged cheeses because most of the lactose is consumed by the bacteria and the whey is removed. Regular store bought yogurt on the other hand will kill me becuase there is too much lactose, but also way too much whey. Whey is that liquid that forms on the yogurt after it sits in the fridge for a while. I can make my own yogurt following the SCD recipes and if I drip the yogurt which means draining off the whey then I can eat it.

Check out regular kraft cheeses (not american). They remove the whey durring processing and claim on the package that their cheeses contain 0 grams of lactose. I'm not sure if thier new Natural Cheeses are lactose free, but the ones in the Blue Packages or in the bricks typically are.
