Thaks Matilda,

I know it's really tough for people with multiple food issues. We're running into the same situtaion with cheese. The rice cheese that I've looked at also have milk protein in it. My daughter loves organic, unsalted butter. She seems to crave it and could eat it all by itself :o The olive oil idea is great! I had some coconut oil and I didn't know if it would work for baking? :unsure:

Thanks again :)

Fleischmann's produces two light margarines that can be used in baking. These are suggested because they are few of the only non-dairy margarines on the market.

Unsalted Fleischmann's - Comes in sticks. Free of all dairy and gluteningredients, but does include Soy.*** so not what you want, however-

Light Fleischmann's - Comes in tubs. Dairy-free, Gluten-Free and Soy-free, it is derived from Corn and Canola Oils.

How to Substitute

1. Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup more Fleischmann's than butter, shortening, or margarine in a recipe.

Example: 1/2 cup Butter, Margarine, or Shortening = 3/4 cup Fleischmann's.

It is important to melt the Fleischmann's in the microwave for 30 seconds to properly measure it.

2. Because Fleischmann's contains more water content than butter you will probably need to REDUCE any liquid ingredients such as water or milk that the recipe requires. Do this by first adding the Fleischmann's and then slowly mixing your batter. Add the other liquids slowly to the recipe, keeping in mind you will probably reduce it by approximately 1/4 cup.

3. Follow the recipes instructions on baking temperature and time.

Coconut Butter

A naturally saturated, unhydrogenated, unrefined vegetable fat. It is stable which makes it ideal for baking and sautéing. Coconut butter is the same as coconut oil. Use as a substitute for shortening and butter in recipes such as pancakes, cakes and cookies. Unlike other substitutes it may lend a slight ‘coconut’ flavor to finished products.

Example: 3/4 cup coconut butter = 1 cup butter

Palm Oil

The only type of oil that is solid naturally at room temperature. This means it does not require processing and hydrogenation like shortening. It has a mild to no flavor and is perfect for baking. Use it interchangeably with traditional shortening. It is generally found in natural foods stores or by special order.

Example: 1 cup Palm oil = 1 cup shortening.

I heard that there is a passover butter (Mother's I think) that is supposed to be dairy and soy free but I didn't find it in my town.

Everything I have found has soy...I use canola or olive oil for baking and I have not had any problems. However, if a receipe calls for solid instead of melted then you need to use a solid oil to replace it with.

Also, I have heard and from personal experience, if you have a problem with casein, stay away from goats milk products.

Thanks for the recommendations. Now I've got options!!!! I've read in the information form YORK about the goat's milk. I was hoping that might be an option but we've decided to steer clear!

If dairy isn't a problem is it possible to substitute butter for the gluten-free margarine in Gluten free recipes? Thanks

Smart Squeeze by Smart Balance is free of gluten, dairy and soy. It's more of a liquid. Can't be used in cooking or baking but can be put on things like bread and potatoes. For baking I use coconut oil or olive oil.

It's Passover season so i'd try and find some Mothers Margarine. You can find them at local Kosher stores or even the Kosher aisle of your grocery store. You might be able to order them online too.

I frequently use sweet oils as a butter substitute. Grapeseed, almond, hazlenut are all good. Don't use grapeseed outside of a recipe. It gums up a pan like nothing else. It is fine if it is mixed into a batter though. All are also good for drizzling on bread. I use olive oil for my savory dishes and usually grapeseed for my sweet. I don't really use "butter" in pats anymore though. good luck.

Clarified butter works for me. It removes the milk proteins and lactose. I find it cheaper to make myself with salted butter (salted butter has less milk proteins). I store it in a glass jar and it doesn't need to be refrigerated. If you are super sensitive you may want to buy it commercially because you have to remove all the white protein that settles to the top to be completely free of diary. I haven't been able to find the Light Fleischmann's in my grocery stores but that sounds good too if you can find it. Again, it works for ME and doesn't give me any gas and bloated symptoms that unclarified butter will give me but everyone is different with their sensitivities. Personally, I don't like the fake butter taste and can't handle the coconut oil although it is tastey.

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
