It's NOT just the carbs -- it's the protein, of which cheese has  LOT. 

For an off-the-cuff calculation -- not precise numbers -- 1 oz is about
30 g. Supposing you had 30g. of protein, 60% of that converts to carbs
-- so you had the equivalent of 18g. of carbs. 

48 mg/dl divided by 18g. of carbs is roughly 3 mg/dl per gram -- not too
far off what I've heard other people report.

So your BG is doing exactly what I'd expect!
