For Those Who Are Dairy Free

Recommended Posts

Jeanne: I think this was a reference for people who have multiple food intolerances, that sometimes things like canola (and other oil sources) can cause problems. In terms of Celiac, it is safe. And to my knowledge, there is no link between Celiac and canola (i.e., like Celiac and lactose). I think it was just meant in terms of anecdotal evidence on the board.

Lisa: You can find Smart Balance as easily as Fleishmanns. Smart Balance is different than the brand that Mango mentioned (Earth Balance).

For anyone who is ok with using Canola, I've had great results with "Canolio" margarine, which is 100% canola. Among other stores, I've found it at Stop & Shop in their (albeit limited) organic food section. And I like the taste, too!

How about Nucoa. When we tried a casein free diet with my daughter that was what we used. I personally don't have knowledge about the gluten, but I have seen it listed as OK.

Positive reaction to diet

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord. Job 1:21b

Another dairy-free margarine if Willow Run, made by Shedd's. I haven't tried it, and it has more trans fat than the Fleischmann's. Earth Balance has no trans fats or hydrogenated oils.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

As others have mentioned, you can make your own ghee (and it's simple and yummy!) For baking, I use ghee, coconut oil, almond oil or other nut oils and sometimes animal fats. For frying/sauteeing, mainly animal fats like lard, bacon drippings, duck fat etc. The good old fashioned fats we all used in the days BEFORE heart disease, cancer etc ;)

Avocado oil is nice too for both cooking (esp with meats) and on salads. And coconut oil is super for deep-frying; plus, you can use it as moisturizer and hair treatment so it's very economical stuff!
