There are trace amounts of casein in butter. (Remember 0g on a nutrition label doesn't mean NONE. It means less than 0.5g per serving.) That said, some people who are casein intolerant do fine with moderate amounts of butter (I seem to, and I know I'm not the only one). It depends on how sensitive you are. (I'm assuming a 'standard' casein intolerance here, not a casein-induced enteropathy, which functions like celiac disease in causing intestinal damage.)

hmm. well im not quite sure what to make of it. I have not fully understood my lab results. they said that I have an autoimmune reaction to cows milk. does this mean that milk will damage my intestines like gluten does?

Well, if you are having an autoimmune reaction then yes, there is damage happening to your body somewhere. The autoimmune system attacking your own body IS the reaction. So yes. I wouldn't eat butter either. I tried and still had a reaction to it. To me, dairy is dairy.

I, too, tested positive to casein. My doctor told me it would be fine for me to eat dairy and sour cream. I haven't been totally gluten free for long enough to take the chance. I am hoping after some healing that I can tolerate both butter and sour cream because I sure could use the calories.

Butter has milk solids, so YES there is caesin in it. Not much, but it's there. If you want butter without the caesin, look into "clarified butter" (also known as) Ghee.

I read that you can clarify butter by heating it up and removing the cloudy stuff that separates. Has anyone tried this?

OK - my kid is severely allergic to dairy, and there is the protein in the butter. He is NOT lactose intolerant, he is anaphylactic to any and all dairy. So, we're not new to this, lol ;)

Do not try to clarify the butter either. There is still a chance of the protein being there and making you sick.

Smart Balance Light is casein free, and Fleishman's unsalted sticks I believe are as well (they have a lot of soy, which my son cannot tolerate). We love the Smart Balance, tastes just like butter.... at least what I remember butter tasting like, lol ;).

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I'v posted on here b4... 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant. ( they were kinda shocked that test for celiac was negative) anyway my symptoms went away up until a few months ago. I went to the gi doctor and they said I can't have dairy or fructose.. * I found that out yesterday, I thought my tests for dairy was neg but guess it was pos. And I had no clue about the fructose*..    Anyway is it possible to have all these I tolerances? It's not making since to me.... also if you experience same thing what can I eat!! All I had today was grilled chicken and rice because it was on my lost from gi doctor... I'm a college student so I need easy quick stuff as easy as I can have it now I guess.. also is almond milk ok to have and coconut milk? I'm very confused on the fructose part.. dairy I'v been of for 6 weeks.... my doctor sent a referl over to a diatrition doctor but I want stuff to get me by until I get in. I don't even know what to look for all the research I'v done is just confusing me even more since different websites say different things..... thank you in advance.. I'm trying to gain weight I was gaining the first few yrs of being gluten free but I went back word and stuff went down hill again... 
    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
