  1. That would be because while milk and most soft cheeses (like cottage cheese and mozzarella) are full of lactose, cream and aged cheeses (like cheddar) have very little lactose. Interestingly, I can tell whether an ice cream brand uses more milk or more cream by how much it affects me. Some of the “high end” ice creams I can’t have, while some of the “really cheap, ‘junk'” brands (like Walmart’s Great Value) actually have more cream in them and don’t affect me at all. And I can have as much extra sharp cheddar cheese – my favorite – as I want!
