Casein Allergy

10 posts in this topic

Many of you have a casein allergy. I have been tested positive for gluten and now suspect casein as well. My question is thus: can you cheat much with a casein allergy? Specifically, what about milk and butter for baking? I can go with out cheese and milk etc...but I must admit baking will be more difficult. In other words if tested positive would this mean no more butter on the toast?

God bless

It varies by the individual. If you don't have an anaphylactic allergy, then you might be able to "cheat" a bit, but it depends on your symptoms. This is definitely an area to have your doctor (preferrably an allergist) guide you in.

I agree-if it is a true allergy, an allergist could help with your decision.

As to baking, I make do with replacing melted butter with canola oil and solid butter with a solid palm oil (in place of Crisco since it has corn and I can't eat corn). I use gluten-free plain rice milk in place of all milk. I think you can use almond meal in place of dried milk in receipes - however, since I cannot have almonds, I just leave it out and have not really noticed enough of a difference. I make up the difference with rice flour.

My family has not seemed to noticed a difference in flavor and I only notice minor differences in baking times.

However, even just a little lactose/casein makes me sick...I know within an hour if I have eaten something wrong. I cannot cheat.

Thanks, and just to let you know, I have just recieved my york lab results that say no more dairy. I will know try to avoid. Thanks so much for your feedback! Regarding Canola oil, you may want to see what a general search engine brings up on the subject (top 7 results are negative, I stopped reading after that) Also Weil has an interesting article posted below. Take care.

Hi,

I am intolerant of casein and whey (I learned the hard way, by eating foods containing these, then suffering with asthma and the inability to breathe).

I am also intolerant of all grains, milk & dairy, egg whites, and yeast. I use Imperial margarine for baking, for using on baked potatoes, and for anything that needs butter. I am sensitive to so many foods, so I am really grateful to be able to eat Imperial Margarine. I also use olive oil, corn oil, and vegetable oils.

Good luck in your searching for what you can eat! Welda

My four year old has the casein sensitivity and I am not sure what gives her this reaction, but she will tell me she cannot get her cough out. It is very dry and she will do this for days. Anybody ever had this?

:huh: Hi this is the first time I have posted on this site. My husband 31 and son 14 months both our celiacs. Can anyone tell me what exactly is a casein allergy? Both of them our on a gluten free diet but, my son is still having a reaction to something. He has exema on his face it only comes out when he has eaten something that has trigged it. He is also lactose sensitve. If anyone has any input I would really appreicate it.

Thanks

Christine

Hi Eva,

I think casein and whey are both milk derivatives, in other words, made from some part of the milk molecule. I know that Little Bo Peep sat down to eat her curds and whey. Let's home she wasn't a Celiac, but maybe she was and that's why she got fuzzy headed and lost her sheep. I went to the health food store looking for cheese and other products which didn't contain milk. I ended up with lots of products with casein and even whey, not realizing then that after eating them I would feel like I was going to die, since my bronchial tubes closed up and I couldn't breathe (that's how Celiac affects me most profoundly--in my breathing passages). Modified food starch gets me too. Welda

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
