I can't seem to find the nutritional content or the ingredients when I GOOGLE. Can you post them if you have a package? It could be OK but it may have fillers like cornstarch or sugar in which case it is not allowed if you want to be strictly OP.

Here is the page from the Kraft website that shows the nutrition info and the ingredients.

Ingredients: PROTEIN CONCENTRATED SKIM MILK, SKIM MILK, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF SODIUM TRIPOLYPHOSPHATE, SUGAR, XANTHAN GUM, PASTEURIZED MILK AND CREAM, SALT, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, CARRAGEENAN, POTASSIUM SORBATE AND CALCIUM PROPIONATE AS PRESERVATIVES, CHEESE CULTURE, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, CAROB BEAN GUM, VITAMIN A PALMITATE.

Where's the cream cheese? :lol:

The South Beach website lists fat free cream cheese as Phase 2 and 3 only, not Phase 1. There is a limit on how much you can eat, too, but I can't remember the exact amount. I think it's 2 tablespoons per day.
