What Is The Difference Between Pizza Hut Mozzarella Cheese And Regular Mozzarella
I am lactose intollerant, however I am able to eat pizza that is made with fresh mozzarella vs regular cheese. Is there a difference in digestion?
Threshold issue: Most people, even those with lactose intolerance, have the ability to digest some lactose because they have some lactase enzyme activity. Exceed your threshold to eat pizza "cheese" and you pay for it with gas, bloating, diarrhea. Consume small amounts of lactose (below your lactase enzyme threshold) ; you're good to go. ...Read more
Simply: no.: I am not aware of any unique allergens in mozzarella that are not in all milk products. Of course, the history of your symptoms is very important in figuring out what is causing them. ...Read more
Is it possible to be allergic to all types of cheese except mozzarella? This doesn't make sense to me.
Possible: If one is allergic to dairy and/or the fungus used to ferment it to cheese, then an allergic reaction is possible. Since the fungus used may vary in type or quantity, one may not be reacting to all the cheeses. However, if one were allergic to the cow protein from cheese, then one would likely be allergic to all of them ...Read more
Possible, . ..: Yes, it is possible as your repeated observation confirming such a connection will suffice to be self evidenced. Urine cloudiness at times commonly occurs reflecting what we consume to affect urine pH; if alkaline, likely to be cloudy due to more amorphous phosphate crystals. To assure, do urinalysis with a properly collected fresh urine so to avoid unwanted contamination. If ok, so are you. Best. ...Read more

I sometimes start getting chest pain when I eat pizza or some other cheese related items. To be honest I like eating pizza too, so what's the solution?
Pizza: Often has Tomatoes in it, especially the paste, etc. Which can be acidic and increase the risk of "heart burn" or acid indigestion. Get an eval for heart burn and maybe medication can help and then on a rare occasion your Dr. May let you enjoy a good piece of Beautiful Pizza! ...Read more
Can you be partially lactose intolerant or is it one or the other. I don't do well with eggs, pizza, and some other foods, but can eat cheese & other?
Not Lactose: The fact that you don't do well with eggs and pizza, but do ok with cheese would tend to go against lactose intolerance (there is no lactose in eggs). You could definitely have some other food sensitivity. Pay careful attention to the ingredients in your food. If you notice that a certain ingredient shows up in every food you do badly with, that's the culprit. Hope this hleps! ...Read more
May slow absorption: High protein and/or fatty foods can slow stomach emptying, as well as dilute alcohol content in the stomach. Can slow absorption of alcohol, and therefore modulate levels. Of course, if you overdo either, all that stuff in your stomach may not feel too good, and you might vomit. Moderation in all things. ...Read more
I am 12 weeks pregnant & was wondering if the fontina cheese on my pizza is safe to eat. It says it's pasteurized.?
Heat!: The pizza oven heats to some 800 degrees farenheiht. Not much survives this temperature. This also applies to frozen pizza, provided it hasn't been mishandled. Enjoy your pizza! ...Read more
I have had this problem, it looks like shredded paper bits lodged in my poop what is it? My diet is pizza, steak, chicken, cheese and bread
No fiber diet!: Fiber, of both water soluble and water insoluble variety, provides health benefits. Fiber accelerates how quickly food transits through the gut. Fiber adds bulk to stool and improves bowel regularity. Fiber can be used as an adjunct to weight loss by filling you up without excess calories, and in so doing restricting fat intake. But too much fiber can make you gassy and increase stool volume. ...Read more
My 8 year old ahad pizza with different cheeses and now jihe has a stomachache, states he wants to throw up? What can I do?
Nausea: Your question suggests you think the cheese is the culprit. It also maybe coincidental and he had a virus. The fear of vomiting is often worse than the real thing. Get him a bucket and reassure him that vomiting is okay. Try to have him pass gas or have a bowel movement. Use a heating oad with low setting on his tummy for a short while or take a bath. If this does not help there are meds ...Read more
I need advice on how to stop binge-eating in the evenings. I don't purge, but I buy pizza, chocolate dessert and mac & cheese and eat them for 1 meal.
Options.: Hello. First off- these are low quality carbohydrates. If suggest not buying these foods. Try to purchase and eat healthier foods (5 servings of veggies & 4 servings of fruit per day). Insure that you eat regularly during the day - so that you aren't starving at night. Try attending overeaters anonymous for support and to learn lots of ways to cope without using food as the coping mechanism. ...Read more
12-13 hours before an ugd (upper endoscopy) I had a cheese pizza. Is it possible that could have prevented an esopgheal ulcer from getting seen?

Test results said I have slight staph infection, how bad is this. I was prescribed an anti biotic taravid 200mg but had some cheese pizza does this?
All depends. Many: People carry Staph. Aureus in nose & various places on skin without problems. Where sample taken from, nature of test, accuracy, clinical significance, etc. Are all key importance issues. Anti-bio-tic means against-life-thing, i.e. a poison for certain living cells. Is this or Taravid relevant/useful for your situation? Too little information to judge. Cheese pizza unlikely of much relevance. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with an ulcer, and I will have an upper endoscopy soon. If you have cheese pizza 13 hours before hand, can it mask an ulcer?
No: Pizza is a poor choice of food if you have an ulcer. It will further decrease the gastric ph making your stomach hurt more. ...Read more
Why does cheddar (all varieties) give me stomach ache but other cheese such as mozzarella, colby jack, etc. Do not?
Cheese: The difference may be in the formulation of the cheese. Cheddar to give its texture and consistency uses lactate which can cause stomach bloating pain gas etc. Mozzarella and other cheese doesn't. Perhaps try lactaid pill (contains lactase the enzyme that beaks lactate down) prior ingesting your next slice of cheddar. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If I cook soft cheeses, eg feta on top of pizza baked, would that be safe to eat while pregnant bc the heat would kill any bacteria?
Safe vs Sorry: Listeria is a bacteria found in soft cheeses. It's possible that the heat from the oven would kill the bacteria. It is also possible that some of the bacteria would not be killed. Since pregnant women are 20 times more likely to get an infection from listeria I would rather you be safe than sorry. ...Read more
Color: Oftentimes cheeses are dyed yellow to ensure uniformity of color. If you are on an all yellow diet this could be a good thing. But I do not advocate "diets" of any sort as there is plenty of evidence that none work long term. Weight maintenance at a weight below one's current weight is achieved only by making permanent lifestyle changes. Color of cheese has no bearing. ...Read more
No: There should be no difference, unless you are intolerant of cow milk or goat milk. Enjoy. ...Read more
Milk: Sometimes. If both bother you you have a cows milk or dairy intolerance. Sometimes one can eat exotic cheeses without problems with this disorder since the preperation of the cheese may change or denature the part of the milk you are allergic to thus rendering the product safe. Sometimes boiling milk will do the same. There are many proteins and components to milk that you could be allergic to so. ...Read more
The gluten free and corn pizza crusts just aren't the same. Can I have regular pizza once a week if celiac?
Avoid ALL gluten: With celiac disease, exposure of the intestine to any gluten causes inflammation of affected gut lining, with a decrease in absorptive surface of that gut, & resulting malabsorption of food. The best & most enduring fix is to avoid eating any gluten. Serum tissue transglutaminase antibody can help determine how successfully gluten is avoided. Don't compromise your health for taste preference. ...Read more
Why is my son vomiting after drinking milk? He tolerates pizza and ranch well. He threw up four days in a row until I eliminated milk from his diet. What could cause him to tolerate those things with milk in it and not regular milk?
Cheese: Although cheese is processed from milk, it is not exactly milk. Some thoughts, does your son have diarrhea with the vomiting too? Also, have you tried soy or almond milk. ...Read more
In sunscreens I heard that micronized zinc under a microscope looks like swiss cheese and that it allows uv penetration. True? Is regular zinc better?
No: The micronized particles are smaller in size and therefore are dispersed in a more homogenous mixture and should actually work better. If you look at things at high magnification, you can see the spaces between components in general. ...Read more
