Lactose Intolerance ›

Lactose intolerant dairy lovers, rejoice! When making cheddar, the milk is separated into curds and whey, and the whey (where most of the lactose is) is drained from the curds, which are then pressed into blocks of cheese. Any residual lactose remaining in the cheese is broken down in the natural aging process. So aged cheeses, like Cabot cheddars, contain zero grams of lactose.

Gluten Intolerance ›

All of Cabot's products are gluten-free with the exception of our spreadable cheddars and deli cheese that is repacked at your local grocery store. Due to our sourcing, we cannot guarantee these products to be wheat-free. All of the rest of Cabot's products and ingredients have been researched and verified to be gluten-free and are produced in a gluten-free environment.
