In Topic: Help With Possible Dairy Intolerance

<br />Ghee is great!<br /><br />Only caveat is that if you are trying to avoid inflammatory foods, ghee is out because it's an animal fat. But if lactose/casein is your concern then ghee away. I love it.<br />

<br /><br /><br />

I am still pretty new to figuring out the dairy intolerance, i will still need to narrow it down as to whether it's lactose or casin, i am pretty sure it's lactose, but not 100%. I am off on vacation next week and on a cruise, so i am not going to go crazy over this til i get back.

i really appreciate all the help. I am going to go dairy free the minute i get home from vacation and see if it helps!

<br />The enzyme that breaks down the lactose in dairy products is made on the tips of the villi. If you have any villi damage, lactose will give you trouble.<br />Some people take a supplement that helps break it down if they feel the need to continue eating it.<br /><br />Yogurt and some cheeeses have the lactose processed out when they are made, so you could still eat them. If those bother you, you may have a problem with casein..the protein in milk? <br /><br />If you take away whichever dairy bothers you, you may be able to enjoy it again once you've healed.<br /><br />I ditto IrishHeart on the SoDelicious coconut milk. I get the vanila flavored milk for my cereal..it's yummy!<br />For a butter substitute I use Earth Balance soy free spread.<br />

<br /><br /><br />

can you cook with that butter like regular butter? is there a better choice for cooking?

<br />Thats the way I am.  I believe I am lactose intolerant.  I can't have raw milk at all.  Ice Cream I do eat, but I feel awful for hours later on.  I can handle cheese in small amounts, yogurt and things that milk is in (baked goods)...but basically I try to only eat a small amount of these things.<br />

<br /><br /><br />

when you eat small amounts you seem fine, but over load, not so much, i think that is what is happening with me. I am going to try to cut out all obvious dairy for a bit and see what happens. Do you have problems with milk soilds found in non diary foods? also, do you use a dairy free "milk' and can you recommend a good brand for a beginner to try?

are you doing weight watchers on line or going to a meeting? I want to try weight watchers, but wasn't sure if it was adaptable to the gluten free diet, i made a post on here about it but no one replied :( If you have good weight watchers experience, i would love to know!
