Abstract

The range of cheeses analysed for their lactose and galactose content to verify their suitability for a low galactose diet in galactosaemia continue to expand. No assumptions should be made about the suitability of any cheese for galactosaemia until reputable and repeated analysis has been conducted.

Aim:  To analyse the lactose content of a range of Mini Babybel cheeses.

Methods:  The lactose content of 10 samples of Mini Babybel (five Mini Babybel Original and five Mini Babybel Emmental) was analysed by Leatherhead Food international Laboratory.

Results:  The lactose content of Mini Babybel Original varied between <2 mg to 12 mg 100g−1 and Mini Babybel Emmental was between 6 and 7 mg 100g−1.

Conclusions:  The lactose content of Mini Babybel Original and five Mini Babybel Emmental is too high to render them suitable for the treatment of galactosaemia.
