Eatlean protein cheese (3% fat) 350g, £3 @ Waitrose

11
Found 17th May 2016
I noticed eatlean protein cheese in my local Waitrose. Couldn't find it on the Waitrose web site though. Reduced from £4 to £3, so the same price as their normal & half fat cheddar. Offer probably on until 7 June.

Only 3% fat! Normal cheese has about ten times that.

Manufacturer's product site: eatleancheese.co.uk/

It's probably the same as MyProtein protein cheese apart from different packaging: myprotein.com/spo…tml

I haven't tried it yet, if anyone does please post your opinion below. Does it melt like normal cheese in a toasted sandwich?

Update: I've now tried this cheese. It is a bit rubbery and doesn't melt like normal cheese. Still bearable in a sandwich with pickle though, just think how healthy you're being...

I guess most of the rest is water plus a little fat.

Cathedral city etc is like 30g of protein per 100g but much higher fat, something like 30g too. Probably worth it just for the low fat! Heat added

This stuff is absolutely disgusting dont waste your money. The same consistency as chewing on an eraser and tasteless

Bet that doesn't even melt. 30% less fat I can live with. 50% less fat is like plastic. 3% fat doesn't bear thinking about.

Made on a dairy farm, but lactose free? Sounding more and more suspicious. Can't find the ingredients:

I don't think there's anything special about this cheese being (claimed to be) lactose-free. Normal cheddar would be just the same.

Here's a quote from http://lifehacker.com/the-best-cheeses-to-eat-if-youre-lactose-intolerant-1563386663

"An easy way to check for lactose in cheese is to look at the Nutrition Facts under "Sugar" Since the sugar in cheese is lactose, you can easily see how much lactose the cheese contains. If the sugar is listed as zero, then the cheese contains no more than half a gram of lactose per ounce. Compare to 12 grams of lactose in an 8 ounce glass of milk.

Cheese with trace levels (less than 0.5 gram lactose) Natural, aged cheese (such as Cheddar, Parmesan and Swiss) can be digested by many people with lactose intolerance. During the cheese making process, most of the lactose is drained off with the whey (a liquid portion). The small amount that remains in the curd is changed to lactic acid during ripening (aging) of cheese. Only trace amounts of lactose remain."
