Having had other makes of Lactose free cheese I was a little hesitant to buy this Cathedral City cheddar. However having read several reviews I decided to go for it. It is delicious and does indeed taste more like ordinary cheddar than others I have tried. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it doesn't have the real bite of a mature cheddar, more of a milder taste but will definitely be buying it again!
You pay more but its really worth it.
My Partner is Lactose intolerant and it became a pain buying two different types of cheese because other lactose free products feels and tastes like you're eating melted down plastic. I highly recommend the cathedral city lactose free cheddar, my partner has had no problems eating it and I honestly cant tell the difference. Yes you pay more and it only comes it small packs but I really believe its worth it. We only buy this cheese now so it saves messing around at meal times.
No good for lactose interance
I'm lactose intolerant and suffered after eating this
Lactose free cheddar cheese.
I love cheese and when I had to be put on a lactose free diet I changed over to this one and it taste as as good as the one I used before. The only difference is the price. For 200g cheese it is priced to high and most shops sell these lactose free products at a higher price knowing people with a lactose intolerance will buy it, even when it is not their fault for suffering from the condition. We all need to eat! I still buy it because I like it not the price though!
Good for lactose intolerant, taste 99% there.
I’ve used lactose free milk and butter for a long time but I love real cheese, so when I saw this I thought I would give it a try. I’ve enjoyed a lot of Cathedral City cheddar over the years. The lactose free version tastes pretty much the same, but it’s not quite right. There’s a little something missing from the taste and though I can’t put my finger on it, I’m guessing it’s related to the missing lactose. I might continue to buy it for the health benefits (I’m lactose intolerant, with normal cheese having a much smaller impact compared to milk for example).
I've always used cathedral city cheese and when I
I've always used cathedral city cheese and when I found out I couldn't have lactose in my diet I switched to the lacto free I didn't like any other brands until I found this one and it tastes exactly the same as normal cheese absolutely fantastic bring it back
cant tell the difference chedder
there's one person in the family who is lactose intolerant but we all love this cheese tastes exactly like cheddar wish they did larger packs
Excellent cheese for those with dairy intolerance.
Excellent cheese for those with dairy intolerance. All Tescos should stock this. It can be hard to find on the shelves.
Great lactose free cheese at last!
Great taste - really rich and creamy. I much prefer this than the other lactose free cheeses. But I do agree with the other comment, in that it should be placed with the other diary free products for easy finding. I only found it by chance.
I think this is superior to Arla's Lactofree Cheddar. Usually I have to wait a week or two before Lactofree starts to get that rich, pungent tang expected from cheddar. My first pack of Cathedral City had that aroma as soon as I opened it. The packaging is also much better.
