I am dairy free as well and goat and sheep cheese seem to be easier on my stomach if I eat in small quantities. There are some great goat cheeses out there that are similar to colby jack and other cheeses so you can try to make a pizza. Also pecorino is from sheep's milk. It is more like a romano or parmesan. The cheese is a little tangier, but I have really enjoyed it.

If that goes well for you, there is a company called Laloo that sells goat's milk ice cream. It is delicious!

I have been looking at my small town grocer but no luck even checked out Wal-Mart and again no goat anything. Where are you getting these cheeses?

I have had small quantities of goat's milk products and not reacted. Sheep's milk cheeses seem to bother me.

I have heard that the casein content in goat's milk varies. So one cheese might be OK and another makes you sick. The last time I had a goat's milk cheese (for a recipe that really needs something to hold it together and I was stumped for another answer) I didn't have that much, but I felt bad. So I am reluctant to continue experimenting.

It really is individual. If you search, you can see that this topic has come up before. Some can tolerate these products, some can't. Some react like I do, variably.

But if you are talking about regularly drinking the milk as your dairy substitute, I think it would be better to go with a completely nondairy source.

I had tried goat's milk in pumpkin pie, and got sick, but that *may* have been from potatoes eaten around the same time. It's something I'm going to have to test in the future.

Coconut milk is a good dairy substitute for baking. I like rice milk for the occassional cereal or fruit smoothy. Almond milk is also really, really good, but some contain soy and I'm not eating that right now either.

I've tried both sheep milk yogurt and goat milk yogurt recently (after being casein free for over a year), and I react to both. The goat milk seems worse than the sheep milk. I get some mild symptoms right away, but it has a cumulative effect with me, and if I keep eating it, it turns to major congestion and sinus infections. I was completely clear of sinus issues for the whole year I was casein free.

I get mine at the health food store. When I shop today I will look at the brand for you. I don't have any right now!

If you're going to try a goat or sheep milk cheese, try to make sure it's made from raw cheese, not pasteurized cheese. A lot of people tolerate raw dairy much better than pasteurized. It's also far healthier. And the raw milk hard cheeses last FOREVER in the fridge.

Thanks for the replies you guys!!:)

I bought some goat milk and I love the flavor of it. I don't seem to have any reaction to it, I will have more over the holiday and be able to tell for sure.

I am excited pecorino is made with sheep milk. I love pecorino cheese, and I am feeling a little frustratred with the lack of any alternatives I am able to find. I can eat Chevre. But who wants to put Chevre on a pizza? ;)

I saw that colby one but the back says it contains "milk" so that made me even more confused. lol :lol:

the back of the label says "goat milk, rennet and salt" then "allergy warning:contains milk"

cow's milk?

Oh my Mom found me a can of Evaporated Goat Milk @ the Super Walmart in the baking section so it's out there I think it depends on the store and location:)

MUAH!

I don't think it means cow milk, I think it's just a dairy warning for the IQ impaired who can't figure out cheese contains milk. You know, like the box of Wheaties says "contains wheat". Ya think?

I forgot to get back on here and post the name of the goat cheese that I love!! It is from the Mt. Sterling Creamery in Wisconsin. They make a variety of goat cheeses that come in a brick and can be used to replace brick cow's cheese if you can tolerate the goat milk. I can't tolerate dairy in any quantity, and small amounts of goat cheese/ice cream are ok. I hope you can find it, or something like it!

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
