I do most of my grocery shopping in a store that services the hispanics.  I found a cheese there that looks so much like mozzarella, it does not have any avoids in it.  What is Quesa Blanca?  Is it a neutral or an avoid for type O's and A's?

So, it's Queso Blanco....(It's obvious I don't know the spanish language!   )
Thanks, No, I didn't look in Wiki first but this does answer my question.

Does the ingredient list or packaging state if it is dervied from cow, sheep, or goat milk?  

Most hard cheeses made from cow milk are avoids for blood type A's.

This cheese tends to come from goat or sheep. It has very low fat content. It is fresh cheese. It is not mozarella which is also fresh cheese but it comes from water bufalo or cow.

I consume it as neutral for O's.

If A's can have goat or sheep cheese then you should be able to have it.

Make sure it has no cow's milk. It is not meant to have any but you know, one finds avoids in the most unexpected places

Thank you for sharing this information with us.

Yes, it is always still a good measure to double check for any avoids in the ingredient list for any food product.

I'm pretty sure that the queso blanco cheese I found is made from cow's milk...forgot about that.    I will double check next time I go.

Once you get your secretor status back, you can decide if you want to eat cow dairy (i.e. mozzarella without avoids and now queso blanco). For A's, both secretors and nons, mozzarella is neutral.

"Oh - the goat cheddar? It's unlisted, and I wouldn't venture an opinion on it because the cheeses have markedly different effects depending on processing. I'd leave it alone, for now. "

Oh dear, I just read this on Heidi's on the Diet (bloggers section) for today.

I would still say that queso blanco is ok for us as long as it is goat or sheep. I certainly have no watery nose after consumption.

I do suspect that soft cheeses made from goat or sheep milk are better than the cow-milk counterparts for A's.  However, I would like to point out that several of the soft cheeses that are rated as Neutrals for us are traditionally made from cow milk -- namely cottage cheese (non-secretors only), farmer cheese, paneer, quark, and ricotta.  And one of those (farmer cheese) is also rated Neutral for O secretors.

So I wouldn't automatically rule out queso blanco that happens to be made from cow milk.
