so I still stick to the suspision that rennet or some enzyme may be the culprit...,
(gluten or something the like)
I mean, you can find gluten intolerance on so many levels, and many celiacs eat
low protein bread without any problems, on the other hand, a few of us are supersensitive, and in order to find some cheese I can eat, and in order not to be labelled hysteric I need to know the exact reason as to what is wrong with the cheese I eat, since I have no problems with other dairy products.

I had to give up all dairy for many months after starting the gluten-free diet. I would get the worst stomach pains, etc after ingesting any dairy product (even butter!). However, in the past week, I have reintroduced dairy 3 times without any problem. (I have been totally gluten-free since august 2003 and totally dairy-free since Jan. 2004.) I even ate ice cream this week without a problem!
Hard cheeses are the safest bet for celiacs if you have no other intolerances or allergies. Don't buy low-fat (since wheat could be in there) or flavored cheese. Eat the real thing.
At the natural foods markets around here, I have seen gluten-free, dairy-free cheese. It is made from soy. You might check for that if you have no other options. In fact, I buy frozen pizzas that have gluten-free rice crusts and soy cheese. They are completely gluten-free, casein-free and dairy-free.
