Gluten Free/dairy Free Sour Cream?
0

7 posts in this topic

I know there's a dairy free one, made by Tofutti, but they're not 100% sure about it being gluten-free or not... and I really can't have ANY gluten. I'm also trying to stay dairy free but I absolutely LOVE sour cream...

Does anyone know of a company that makes this? And possibly a good dairy free cheese-like product for nachos?

My kids like Follow Your Heart cheese. My husband likes it, too. I don't, but I'd rather eat no cheese than eat it (or, eat it in very sparing amounts). We have Follow Your Heart sour cream in the refrigerator, but haven't actually tried it yet! (The Skinny "adult female dog" authors are the ones who recommend this brand of cheese on their Web site. The cheese does melt and shred.) There is a new cheese out there called Daiya, which we had on Amy's gluten free macaroni (frozen section). It tasted much more like cheese. It melts more for pizza; locally, a pizza place uses Daiya instead. I think it can be bought only online right now.

I'm definitely looking into those things... thank you! When you DO taste the sour cream though, could you let me know please? I absolutely LOVE sour cream and I cannot go dairy free completely until I figure a way to get that. I don't even care if it's as good or not. I just want something like it... haha. I wonder if Whole Foods has that? I'll check. And I need to look into that cheese too. Daiya. *Looks it up*

Thank you!! Wooo, gluten-free and dairy-free here I come! [:

Update: Daiya is amazing. Little salty, but amazing.

Also. About the Follow Your Heart sour cream... is there another soy-free alternative? Probably not, but I can always hope. =/

Hm...good to know.

Lyco -- are you new to the gluten-free diet? I didn't have sour cream for the first four months, but now I can have it without too much issue. I'm back to eating cheese, too. Again, took about four months, but now i feel much better on it. My point: over time, you can probably have it again, if you are willing to give it up for just a little while. Though sometimes I could get away with it with a lactase supplement. Before now, I used rice cheese, which is actually pretty good for salads and nachos...never used it for pizza. But the texture is about right, and the flavor is darn close -- it is very mild.

We just tasted the Follow Your Heart--finally. I don't think it tastes like sour cream. It wasn't horrible. But, my husband and son liked it (especially with strawberries). I think it would be ok in small amounts. I do remember making a vegan sour cream at one point with silken tofu--the key is the lemon juice in it to give it the sour flavor.

I think raw, soaked cashews are supposed to make a good sour cream as well--and soy free. (For fake dips/spreads--raw nuts are the best--very much like cheese. They work in lasagna, too--the tinkiyada noodles are good.) The best vegan parmesan is Parma--it's a nutritional yeast and raw walnut blend (no soy)--it's great on Italian dishes.

I'm pretty new to it, yeah. I've been diagnosed for a year, but up until about 7 weeks ago I would be on the diet for a while and then I'd cheat.

Not going to do that anymore though. Stupid, stupid idea.

@nicolebeth

I'll have to look into those cashews. Hmmm. That sounds interesting. Thank you!

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
