Default Aged cheese?

My fiance is lactose intolerant and we have recently discovered that aged cheese has very little lactose in it. My question is where can I buy aged cheeses? I have checked all the local supermarkets and they don't carry any.

Age your own. If you have Tillamook in your area, look for the black label.

How aged are you talking? I know some supermarkets carry some aged cheeses, but your best bet is to look at specialty food shops.

This place is near me and carries all sorts of cheese, and does ship. http://www.zingermans.com/Category.a...tegory=cheeses

Prices are kinda high, but their quality/selection is worth the occasional splurge.

From what I have read it needs to be aged until it has a hard texture so that as much of the whey is gone as possible

humbirdcheese.com Ran across them on a scouting trip to the boundary waters. They ship, and I've purchased from them for years. They have a full range of cheeses and aged cheeses.

I have found that Lactaid Tablets are very effective and allow a number of family members to enjoy dairy products that they would otherwise have to avoid.

If you call this place, you can order a 10 year old cheddar if you call them. There is some 5-year cheddar there on the website that you can order.

http://www.dupontcheeseinc.com/index.html

There 10-yr old and 5-yr are astounding cheeses too.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Seems like most Cheddars that are aged at all should not cause any problems.

How aged does it need to be? Honestly Costco sells quite a few good cheeses at better than market prices. 3 year aged cheddar, aged asiago, parm regiano, etc. Just depends on what they carry on any given day.

I've become somewhat lactose intolerant in the past two years. However, I regularly eat sharp cheddar in meals and even sliced as a snack and I've had no issues with it.

I was recently diagnosed with lactose intolerance. A friend of my wife is also lactose intolerant and indeed mentioned that old cheese could be eaten with no or less problems. Dutch cheese (i.e. Gouda cheese and such) is considered old with 10 to 12 months of aging. Anything older than that is considered aged cheese in the Netherlands.

My body seems okay with regular old cheese (if not eaten by the pounds ofcourse).

To late to edit:

Lactose in Dutch cheese (and other 'hard' cheeses) is broken down into lactic acids during the riping/aging process. After how many months the lactose level is no longer causing discomfort, depends on the severity of ones intolerance.

Lactic acids are in turn good for lactose intolerance. As it stimulates lactase activity.
