Is Romano Cheese Lactose-Free?

Romano cheese, like most aged cheeses, contains very little lactose. Through the cheese-making process, the lactose in milk is converted into lactic acid by bacteria. As a result, the amount of lactose present in Romano cheese is significantly reduced. While individuals with lactose intolerance may be able to tolerate small amounts of Romano cheese, those with severe lactose intolerance or dairy allergies should still exercise caution and consult with a healthcare professional if unsure.
