feta cheese still contains casein

I did notice that this was not casein free and I did not label it as casein free. I do know that some people who are on a gluten free diet can eat goat cheeses without difficulty and I posted this for them. I rarely post anything containing any milk products at all, but in this case, I made an exception.


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
