New Research About Gliadin (gluten) In Breast Milk

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this and all this stuff is new to me. If I'm understanding this correctly, if I wanted gluten-free milk, cheese, etc. I should probably buy Organic. Or am I wrong on this? I'm so confused lately.

Chasing, organic would just mean that whatever they fed the dairy cows was organic. So they could feed them organic, as opposed to conventional, wheat. See what I mean?

Still gluten even if organic.


I eat whatever I want. But I listen to my body. I just can't eat a lot of diary or grains. If I do eat them, I savor and chew them slowly and well... I don't like feeling sluggish and if I eat alot of those things I start feeling sluggish. I feel very cleaned out now. I like to eat lots of raw fruits and veggies. I think for me I just can't eat things that are inflammatory, and dairy and all grains are inflammatory to me. So looks like I'll be eating mainly fruits, veggies, wild or grass-fed meats, and figure out what other stuff I can eat thats not too inflammatory. I'll probably also drink wine or brandy and use other plants things that are anti-inflammatory. Yeah!

Thanks for posting the email from Dr J. I read this thread last night and have been thinking about the safety of eating meat of grain fed beef. So I was really intereseted in that part. I am even happier not that we have started raising our own chickens and they are corn and scrap fed (fruits, and veggies).

Chasing, you can buy grass fed beef it may or may not be organic. In our state (Maine) it is expensive to become certified organic so many of the local farmers do not label their products this way. However they are available at the local health food store and it states on the package that they are grass fed.

My next question is how do we know that grass isn't like wheat, barley, rye, etc? I mean in the sense that it would be difficult for someone with celiacs to digest.

I also want to add that my family drinks raw milk and we have never been ill from it. I think it is homoginized, I don't know if that takes out the buggies. It comes from a farm a few miles out side of town. Last fall we visited it and pet all the really sweet dairy cows. One kept trying to eat my daughters hair that was dry and bleached like straw from the summer! Their facility is really clean, the milk tastes sooo much better, and it comes in glass jars that you return to the store for a deposit, so there is not waste, nothing to throw away when the bottles empty. I haven't heard of anyone hear becoming ill, but if I made the decision to drink it I would want to find out where it came from. I let my sister drink it for several months to see if she and her son got sick before I started giving it to my family :P . We are off the white stuff presently.
