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!

    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Doing great! Been gluten-free for two years, now. No symptoms, antibodies are almost nil and certainly where they should be. Been glutened really bad twice (ate 4 slices of bread I thought was gluten-free once, and ate pasta I thought was gluten-free once) was in bed for three days each time and felt like crap for a couple of weeks. Learning experiences, not done that in quite a while. 
    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I'm not a doctor or expert but I've done a lot of reading and I believe anything that causes major inflammation for the small intestine can cause false positives for celiac antibodies. Sometimes people with Crohn's will have positive celiac tests as well.  I wouldn't be surprised in the least that someone with a bad case of Giardia would come up positive.  Now, eventually, as you fully recover from the giardia infection you should go back to normal levels but if you don't you most likely have Celiac as well.  From what I understand, Celiac doesn't go into remission though it can be latent in people for years.

      Hey, happy to see your posting, Fenrir.  I hope you are doing well!  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Well, you do not HAVE to get tested, but since Celiac Disease is genetic and you have kiddos, you should seriously consider the pros and cons. Take for instance, my hubby.  He went gluten-free over 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  "Try giving up wheat and see how you feel."  Well, it worked.  No more sinus infections, feeling achy like he had the flu, etc.  He seriously struggled the first year without a proper diagnosis, but eventually good health became more important than rye bread.  Twelve years later, I was anemic (well I have been all my life)  and went for a routine colonsocopy because all my friends were getting them (the perks of the over 50 club).  During my GI consult he recommended getting scoped at both ends because he suspected celiac disease.  I could not believe it!  But blood tests and my biopsies proved that I had celiac disease.   Hubby will be the first to say that I have had more medical, family and friend support with a formal diagnosis.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge.  His mom was diagnosed with MS and literally died from malnutrition, so we suspect she had celiac disease.  He definitely has a problem with gluten.   Thankfully, my dx has allowed for my daughter to be tested every few years (even without symptoms).  She does not have celiac disease or any other autoimmune disorder yet.  I say yet, because the gene pool for AI issues is huge on both sides.  Good news is that cancer is rare but you never know.   So, this is a decision you will have to make.  An endoscopy requires a much shorter challenge.  Something to consider.  Gene testing too will help rule out celiac disease and might be the first thing to consider as you do not have to be on gluten for that.   I wish you well! 
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Everything you listed above very well could be Celiac Disease and not Sjogren's, but people with one autoimmune disease are at a higher risk of getting another one.  Your GP clearly is working with old knowledge in regard to Celiac Disease. There are probably more people who suffer from constipation from Celiac than loose stools. I know for me I never had diarrhea at all, but I was backed up something fierce.  I also had swollen joints, headaches, abdominal pain, memory issues, high liver enzymes, fatigue and general cloudy head.  Not many of these are symptoms an uninformed Doctor would think to associate with Celiac.  You really have to show up prepared to be your own advocate, tell the doctor that according to many of the GI specialists who work with Celiacs (see University of Chicago's celiac disease Center) these are all symptoms that warrant a proper workup for celiac disease.  It took me 6 months, two biopsies and an unneeded surgery to get diagnosed and that isn't as bad as some.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
