Cheeses with the lowest carb counts

There are several cheeses that are very low in carbs. For example, Monterey Jack and gruyere have only 0.1g per three slices. Other cheeses low in carbs are cheddar, fontina, and muenster.

I always wonder about this. I think each cheese varies from time to time and maker to maker. I suppose some naturally have less whey in them than others though. I don't really believe Jack and Gruyere are that different from any other hard cheese like cheddar, etc. I think the difference you see is portion/rounding/testing error.

I like comparing items at a minimum of 100g servings - this helps give truer carb counts than a typical serving - Cheese is usually considered at one ounce serving

These that were marked as zero carb at 3.5oz - I pulled up the maximum amount listed to get 1g net carb.

Cheese, camembert Total Carbohydrate: 0g - 246g or 8.7oz = 1g carb
Cheese, brie Total Carbohydrate: 0g - 240g or 8.5oz = 1g carb
Cheese, limburger Total Carbohydrate: 0g - 227g or 8oz = 1g carb
Cheese, gruyere Total Carbohydrate: 0g - 168g or 6oz = 1g carb

Cheese carb counts - 100 gram servings (3.5 ounces)
