If you do not tolerate the lactose in milk cottage cheese may bother you (if enough quantity).Aged hard cheeses have very little lactose as the bacteria that makes it cheese eats it. But fresh/soft cheese like cottage cheese hasn't been through the long bacteria eating lactose process.K.

Joolie,I personally found out right off that cottage cheese was an absolute Posted Image for me. So is milk, ice cream, powdered milk, yogurt etc. I can however do regular cheese but for some reason not fat free cheese Posted ImageI do make "healthy muffins", which are very good by they way, with cottage cheese and as long as I only eat one serving a day I do ok, anymore, and I bloat up like a hot air balloon Posted Image I love cottage cheese to so I'm really bummed I can't eat it Posted Image

You could always just avoid cow's cheese. I had to cut it out of my diet and started to have just goats cheese which didnt have an effect on me, so maybe you might find some luck with that ! If like me you love cheese then try the goats cheese! although Feta cheese and some goats cheese's r very salty (which I hate) but some r very tasty Posted Image

I have found exactly the opposite. Cottage cheese and yogurt are really the only two foods that are 100% SAFE for me! When all else is going to hell, I can eat a bowl of cottage cheese and it sooths all the upset. I guess everyone is different. For 7 full days I lived on yogurt and cottage cheese with water and the ocassional glass of milk. I could not handle veggies, grains, fruits, or anything processed.My doc said that IBS affects everyone differently. Some people are safe eating whole grains, but they upset me. Some people cannot tolerate any lactose but I could.My doc also told me that hard cheeses were a huge NO NO because of the aging process. The cheese undergoes chemical changes during the aging that severely upsets IBS. Well, he was right in my case. Any kind of hard aged cheese would tear me up. But fresh milk products were just fine.I guess it all is trial and error until you figure out your own body Posted Image
