Raclette and lactose intolerance: pitfalls and tips for easy eating

What is the lactose content of raclette cheese? 🧀

First of all, let's remember how to tell whether a cheese contains a lot or a little lactose.

Raclette is a semi-hard cheese, so its lactose content is moderate. lactose: 0.1 to 1g of lactose per 100g. It's the maturing time that influences the lactose content. Mature cheese - soft, hard or semi-hard cheese - contains much less lactose than fresh cheese. The vast majority of people with lactose intolerance can therefore eat raclette cheese without fear of symptoms (most people can tolerate up to 10g of lactose, the equivalent of a glass of milk).

⚠️ Attention Lactose sensitivity is unique to each individual, so be careful how much you take in.

Alternatives to traditional cheese

However, there are a number of reasons for this, more sensitive people and more affected by the symptoms of lactose intolerance will find it difficult to eat raclette, despite its low lactose content. However, there are many alternatives to the classic raclette cheese: Beaufort, aged Gruyère or Comté can all be perfectly melted and enjoyed as raclette.

Of course, if you're a big fan of classic raclette cheese, it can be hard to give it up for good! We've talked first and foremost about raclette cheese, but you should also be aware that the charcuterie we eat at this time may also contain lactose. Apart from ham, many charcuterie products contain more lactose than cheese (rosette, sausage, etc.)! Lactose is used as a texturiser and preservative in the food industry. Although you can of course replace charcuterie with vegetables, many raclette fans will find it hard to do without it, because it's such an essential part of this type of meal!
