  • Low Sodium Cheese

    I really do love cheese and hate to give it up...they tell me I can have low sodium cheese but I can't seem to find any. Does anyone know of any particular brand or type that is considered low sodium?

    The first thing that comes to mind is that Dairy Delicious stuff. It's milk and cheese that is made for dialysis patients.

        MelJo,

        I see you are in Texas, me too!
        If you call the TNC pharmacy on the Dairy Delicious you will save money
        on shipping. Just a little FYI.

            I never herad of TNC either until I went to the Dairy Delicious site.
            There are locations listed there. I think TNC mainly deals in medical supplies and
            is not a retail store. The man I spoke with said it is a warehouse. It is located in Crowley.
            Since it was so much closer I saved quite a bit on shipping.
            I am in Midlothian just south of DFW.

                Boar's Head and Alpine Lace both make low sodium cheese (deli case and/or counter). The package is marked as low sodium. But be careful how much you eat because it is still high phosphorous.

                  I live not very far from you at all---live at Lake O Pines near Harleton and Ore City.

                    It depends on how much cheese you eat. However, 1 ounce (28g) of Ricotta has 1% Daily Value Sodium, Marscapone has 2% DV, Cream cheese has 4% DV, and Swiss cheese has 4%.

                      I have never heard about Low Sodium cheese till now but it depends that when and how much quantity of cheese you eat per day.If it is high sodium than you must give it up.

                        No not really,
                        just eat much less of it.
                        unless you really feel like quitting eating all your favorite foods.

                        Apparently Dairy Delicious milk has 50% less bad stuff than regular milk.
                        Personally if I did drink milk I would just have 50% less regular milk and save money that way.

                        For cheese I think Brie might be ok?
                        this is for 100 grams though:

                        Phosphorus, P mg 188
                        Potassium, K mg 152
                        Sodium, Na mg 629

                        if you can even eat 2 ounces it is very filling cheese, also fancy cheese

                        I have even seen low fat low sodium organic cheese puffs!
                        everyone I know likes them and keeps on stealing them surprizingly,the whole bag has maybe 300mg sodium for a 200gram bag.
                        Not sure what brands the US would have as they are in the health foods section.

                        What about fresh mozarella, anyone know if it is low?

                          I have been web searching and info says marscapone cheese has 0 potassium. I have been having trouble controlling it and wondering if this is true. It is kind of tasteless, but can be used in recipes as a soft cheese. Any thoughts or information?

                            This is my first time getting on the Davita site as this is also my first computer. I'm 52yrs. old and have been dragging my feet stepping into the 21st century.Technologically challenged would be putting it mildly. Kicking it Old school I guess is how the kids are putting it nowadays. I guess I'm more like my father than I care to admit. Thank God I at least learned to type in school and I haven't forgotten how to work a qwerty keyboard. My biggest problem when I began dialysis 5 yrs. ago was trying to adhere to a renal diet and giving up cheese & most dairy products. I've finally got my potassium & phosphorous levels at a good level to stay on the transplant list but it has been a struggle at times. I'm going to hae to look for this cheese you suggested in the dairy case in my local markets.

                              The harder the cheese the more sodium it has. The softer the least.
