Insulin and Cottage Cheese

Does cottage cheese produce a large insulin response like milk does? Every cottage cheese that I buy has an allergy advice warning that the product contains milk - Does this mean that it will produce a large insulin response?

(PLEASE don’t mention the refromulated Grow! with casein - I can’t afford the shipping… yet!)

If you look at the ingredients there is some amount of whey and lactose. The quantities should be small and in general NOT illicit a big insulin response. The whey and lactose in milk are what trigger the insulin response.
