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!

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
