Hi everyone,

I've been gluten-free for 6 months and want to reintroduce dairy into my diet. I was wondering if anyone knows whether Lactaid milk is gluten-free. Their website has no information about the gluten-free diet. Thanks.

Yes--I emailed them several months ago, and their milk is gluten free. I drink it almost every day, and I have never had problems with it.

Hi jmengert and jaten,

Did Lactaid not sit well with you at first? I had a lot of discomfort after drinking it. About 2 hours affter having the Lactaid I got stomach cramps, gas, and bloating. I have been tested for a milk allergy and I don't have one. Has it just been too soon for me to start drinking it? Thanks for your advice.

Hi, Jen--No, I've never had a problem with Lactaid, but I've been lactose intolerant my entire life and have been drinking it since I was a child. If it's not a dairy/casein allergy that you're experiencing, then I'm not sure what to suggest. Maybe other people have some ideas....I hope you figure it out!

Hi Jen -

I've tested negative for a dairy allergy, but I have a very severe dairy intolerance. Lactaid makes me really sick. The only dairy I can tolerate is raw organic goat cheese. Anything processed or pasturized makes me sick. I was also unable to tolerate lactose free rice cheese that had casein in it. Hope you figure it out too. :)

Thanks for writing everyone. I'm not sure why I'm having a hard time with Lactaid. My only guess is that my intestines are not fully healed and that it's still difficult for me to digest. I think I'll give it a little more time before I try it again. I drank lots of milk as a child and up until I began to get celiac symptoms and have never had a problem. Wierd.

I haven't found a product yet that I can drink a glass of. I use it on my cereal and it sits ok this way (I've never been one to drink my cereal milk...yegh). I've been gluten-free for about 10 wks, and along with celiac disease diagnosis I have trouble with dairy and soy as many others here. When I get ready to try drinking a glass of milk again, this is the one I'll start with, because as stated, it's the only I've been able to tolerate in lesser amts on cereal.

Keep in mind that Lactaid is lactose-free but not caseine-free..the protein could be the problem, not the sugar.
