It doesn’t matter how appetizing that scoop of choc chip ice cream looks or how eager we are to drink a full fat mocha frappucino — sometimes allergies and intolerances prevent us from enjoying our fave foods. Lactose intolerant lovers of cheese are used to showing restraint. Now, thanks to Bothwell Cheese's new line of delicious lactose-free cheese, they can eat fromage that tastes just like regular cheese — without any issues.

Bothwell produces lactose-free cheeses by extracting the lactose (the sugar found in milk) through natural aging. Bothwell’s lactose-free cheeses are made with 100 per cent Canadian milk and no modified milk ingredients, making them a great option for both mainstream consumers as well as lactose-intolerant consumers.

To help assist the 7 million Canadians who are lactose-intolerant, Bothwell Cheese has added an Augmented Reality App to the rollout of their tasty cheese.

Whether you’re lactose-free or looking to try something new, buying from Bothwell Cheese is a great way to support Canadian cheese makers and guarantee a flavourful fromage.
