    This is helpful information. My husband loves cheese and I like to cook with it. I was looking for recipes that use swiss cheese. Is there a compilation of cheese recipes available?

    The best way to find kidney-friendly recipes with cheese is to type cheese into the search box of DaVita.com. Click on this link to see the many recipes in the search results: http://www.davita.com/search/index.cfm?q=cheese

    What is the potassium content of Follow Your Heart, Vegan Gourmet, Cheddar Cheese alternative per serving?

    The company does not provide potassium information on their website. Looking at the ingredients, the soy milk powder is a source of potassium but unsure how much contained on a serving. Next year we will see potassium on food labels if the new food labeling laws go into effect.
