Is Gruyere Lactose-Free?

Gruyere cheese is not entirely lactose-free but contains significantly less lactose than many other dairy products. During the cheesemaking process, most of the lactose in the milk is converted into lactic acid, reducing its lactose content. This makes Gruyere cheese more tolerable for individuals with lactose intolerance.

However, if you have severe lactose intolerance or are following a strict lactose-free diet, it's best to consult your healthcare provider or a registered dietitian to determine your personal tolerance level and dietary needs.
