Q: I heard from some source that canned milk can be tolerated as the high temperatures that they heat it at to can it destroys the part of the milk that people are sensitive/allergic/intlolerant to. Can anyone confirm this?

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I have heard just the opposite. Casein is not effected by heat.

Yes, high temperature denatures proteins - and really, it doesn't have to get that hot - but it's not necessarily the tertiary or quaternary structure (the way the protein molecule twists and folds) that causes the intolerance, but rather the primary structure - the chain of amino acids, a portion of which may be recognized by the body. This primary structure will not be affected at any temperature reached by common sources. Maybe in a biology lab designed for this, but no - it won't make casein digestable by someone who's intolerant to it.
