I know that proteins are normally broken down by digestive enzymes then absorbed into the blood stream to be utilized for our own protein synthesis, but gluten proteins are proline and glutamine rich and have a hard time being digested. Therefore, 50 amino acid peptides are commonly absorbed into the body and can make their way into the milk supply, supposedly in small concentrations. I know for a fact that when I was breastfeeding my son my milk was making him sick. As a baby he spit up constantly and had numerous watery STINKY bowl movements each day. I also know that he does not have any common food allergies. Now I am putting him back on cow milk and I am a little concerned about him getting gluten through the milk. I understand that it would be a tiny amount, but my son seems to be quite sensitive to gluten.

Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences to share about gluten in milk? Does anyone know of any brand of milk that the cows are not fed gluten (I know it's a stretch)? I found an organic milk that states that their cows graze on organic pastures but I'm not sure what that means. :huh:

Thank you so much for any replies. :)

I wonder if the gluten milk cows are getting is from winter hay. Or if it is from some junk they are being given. Otherwise, they should just eat pasture grass. Organic milk is a good investment, anyone, I've read one of the more important things to get organically made. Raw milk, if it's available in your area, is good too.

It is beef cows that one should worry about with gluten, if anything. They are fed all sorts of crap, though mostly corn in this country.

Anyway, have you tried goat milk? It is easier to digest for many folks...and again, they should just be eating pasture grass.

Or more simply because IgA is definitively transferred in breast milk... he got your IgG about 12 weeks into the pregnancy when the placental barrier first allows blood to be transferred.

If we assume it was your antibodies, not gluten then there is no danger in cows milk (lactose/casein intolerances excluded) since cow antibodies are not the same as human ones...( even if cows produce gliadin specific antibodies. )

I'm confused. Are you saying that the gluten peptide in the breast milk is bound to IgA? I thought that unbound gluten fragments can make their way into milk in small amounts as they travel the bloodstream. If that's the case then how would the type of animal make a difference? :huh: If the gluten peptide is bound by a cow antibody then the bound peptide should not be able to bind to human antibodies and initiate an autoimmune response, right? I know this is a long shot, but he's very sensitive to gluten, and my breast milk did make him sick as an infant. I just want to do what is best for him.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
