Butter

Still not feeling that great but I found out the shampoo and conditiner I was using had wheat protein. I was using the ABBA professional shampoo and conditioner. I was wondering if you are casein intolerant sorry I'm not sure if I spelt that correctly. Does that include butter?

You spelled Casein right, you need to read the butter to see if they have added casein. Usually cheese is notorious for casein.

Casein as far as I know is in all butter.

Here's a link about casein intolerance.

I did see one brand of butter once a long time ago with no casein, can't remember the name or where I found it but then I never found it again. I usually by Fleishman's margarine there is one that does not have casein or whey.

Also ghee (clarified butter) might not have casein.

Thanks for all your help! I just can't get off the computer. I have been on it for about 5 hours researching celiac's etc. Found so much helpful information. I have been using butter on everything and reacting to everything lately. I never evened stopped t tink it might be the butter duh!! So I'll try going butter free for the next little while and see if that helps.

We use olive oil for potatoes, bread and things like that. For baking recipes that call for solid butter I use coconut butter or Spectrum organic shortening.

At first I was really stressed about not using butter but now we don't even miss it. My dd is also soy free. Seems like most of the butter substitutes have casein and or soy in them.

I love to take a bread plate and pour some balsamic vinger, extra virgin olive oil and Italian herbs & spices; we use this to dip our bread in. This oil is a health and flavorful alternative to butter for crusty gluten-free breads....YUM :D

No I don't. I tried making some flat bread with potato flour. I didn't feel well after eating it but of course I was loading it with butter which I think I might be reacting to but I'll have to try it out tomorrow. Whenever I react to something it always keeps me bloated all day and usually when I wake up the following morning I feel alot better. So Can't test it out till tomorrow. Why?

Yes, butter has casein in it. Butter is MOSTLY milkfat, but does have some of the protein still in it. In theory, perfectly made ghee will not have any casein in it, because it's had all the solids (proteins) removed.

I keep hearing conflicting info. on the butter vs. margarine issue.

I have a dairy allergy (caseine or lactose not sure which). I have started using margarine from the health food store. Is it healthy or am I just clogging my arteries?

I also wondered if I could use coconut oil and add a butter flavor that is gluten-free?

I can't see why you couldn't use coconut oil with butter flavor. I like hemp oil too,actually I am addicted to hemp seeds. I usually use the margarine for baking. I think one is as good or bad as the other meaning they are equal except for me of course. I love the taste of butter but it depends on whether I think I have suffered enough of not on my daring myslef to eat it, I have not ate butter in so long I can't even tell you what it costs.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
