Foods is no longer distributing Friendship Farmers or
Hoop Cheese (DCCC products). Elaine had previously indicated
"the New Way Natural Day "Dry Farmer Cheese"
is the only product that is SCD-legal. The cream cheese
is illegal and the yogurt products (Tzatziki) are illegal.
Even the New Way hoop cheese has milk added AFTER the
culture which accounts for some [illegal] lactose".

||Friendship Farmer's Cheese and
Friendship Hoop Cheese. According to Elaine at the beginning

from these places. That is OK as my conversation with
the dairy scientist at Friendship has led me to believe
SCDers are just fine with Farmers." Here's a photo
of what it looks like. Many Russian delis in major US
