Can Cheese Control Blood Sugar?
 
Although this cheese study was funded by the Canadian dairy industry, is there any science that proves otherwise. I do agree with the researcher, low fat ain't where its at.

I do question whether or not the rats were made diabetic. Did a high fat diet make them diabetic or were they put into a state of ketosis?

Anybody gave much thought to the effect of cheese on their BG?

Most cheeses contain few or no grams of carbohydrates, so I find eating cheese helpful to controlling my BG. I have to account for its protein and fat content, but otherwise I'm on it!

Cheese is a very big part of my food intake for the following reasons:
1. I love the taste of cheese
2. It's just as good melted as it is solid
3. I can buy it local instead of getting over processed fake cheese from a corporation.
4. I don't have to eat very much to curb my appetite
5. A bag of cheese curds don't have a big affect on my BGs

I use cheese to control my 'morning spike'! After struggling with these fasting Bs's I read someone saying they ate a few pieces of hard cheese prior to going to bed. I tried it and it works for me....

Cheese contains an amazing trans-fat (only the man-made ones are bad) the properties of which are still being discovered. Perhaps that could be the factor.

I went to a recovery boiler audit at one of our sister mills in Wisconsin and had cheese curds for the first time. Holy Moly, they are good raw (so to speak) as well as fried. OMG, I want to drive back up there with a brand new Yeti.

Fresh curds - nothing like it - I go to a small local country grocery store - not too many of those left - that just sell local meats, dairy and veggies (when in season). The curds come from a farm about 20 minutes up the road and they are so fresh they squeak in your teeth when you eat them.

All this talk about curds - I'm going to buy some today LOL ....

Yup. But more than a day or two old? It's like eating a day-old donut (OK, better for you nutritionally). Friends don't let friends eat stale cheese curds.

So I succumbed to the temptation. just bought a bag of cheese curds (6 oz) bag. Here's what the food label says on the back of the bag.

Per 1/4 cup we have the following:

120 Calories
Fat 9 g
Saturated 6 g
Transfat 0.4 g
Cholesterol 30 mg
Sodium 200 mg
Carbs 1 g
protein 7 g

The bag is 175 grams about 1/2 cup's worth (6 oz) and was priced at $5.40. I wonder how that compares to other parts of the world. It came from a farm in Mont Carmel in Prince Edward Island - An Acadian (French) area of the Island.

Most people here use cheese curds to make poutine - fries with gravy and melted curds. Poutine is basically a carb bomb so I always refer to cheese curds as low carb poutine Lol

And yes the curds are fresh and taste fantastic!

Here's an article about the curd makers - nice story
