Hi - I think I may be having a lactose intolerance issue (I was tested for dairy allergy and do not have one). The doc told me to try different dairy and see how I react...

Last night we had tacos and I had some cheese on my tacos...I tried to take a lactaid pill as well...I had some mostly normal bowel movement today but slightly loose at end.

It seems that I have a bit of a reaction the morning after I get the lactose in my system...is this common?

And I've noticed all of my bread recipes have dairy or milk powder in them...is there a recipe anywhere for dairy free/gluten-free bread that I could make?

Many thanks. a

I struggle with whether I am lactose intolerant. For me I can do small amounts of some dairy without a problem. The harder the cheese the better. The higher the fat content the better.

So I use real cream in my coffee, and stick to parm, cheddar, swiss and mozz. Rich ice cream seems to work but ice milk is not okay.

I found some great mixes from Namaste Foods that are gluten, wheat, potato, soy, corn, dairy and casein free.

I found sliced bread that is so good you don't even need to toast it. samisbakery.com It is made in a non gluten free bakery but is made with Millet flour, brown rice flour, water, AL free Baking powder, seasalt, and flax seed.
I tried millet flax bread. I made my mom eat it to see if she would react, I never do, she does with just a trace. She did not have a problem.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

I am lactose intolerant, and it's one of the biggest problems (with regards to foods) that I have in my life. I love cheese. I love ice cream, and custard. I hate having lactose issues.

I buy our bread from a gluten free bakery, and they make our (special ordered) bread with rice milk. My husband tried to bake some for me at home, but it didn't go over very well. :huh:

I do my best to stay away from all lactose, but if I ever heard of anyone having real success with dairy-ease and the likes... I would be willing to try.

Even if your allergy test was negative, you might be intolerant to casein. if lactaid isn't making a difference, that could be the problem.
