Dairy Free Scd -- Is It Possible?

Recommended Posts

Lately i've been wondering if going on the SCD may help allivate some of my weird bowel issues lately-- such as incomplete digestion. I'm already GFCFSF

I just got the book, Breaking the vicious cycle from the library and the "yogurt making" seems to be a big part of SCD.

The problem is that I can't have dairy -- Casein intolerance. So how am i supposed to make the yogurt?

I read on other website that you can make yogurt out of basically anything, i was thinking coconut milk.

Has anyone else done/doing a dairy free SCD -- any suggestions on that or yogurt making would be of great help! Thanks :)

Hi- I have been doing the SCD dairy free for the past 4 months. I feel soooo much better. I don't eat any type of yogurt but I do take a dairy free probiotic.

Good Luck!

I believe to make yogurt you have to start with a little bit of yogurt (to get the cultures). You could use a soy based one. I eat soy yogurt from time to time that is gluten, casein, and dairy-free and buy it at either Kroger or a health food store.

I am also on a dairy free SCD. I started off with the SCD in early April still eating dairy, but the SCD helped me figure out that I am casein intolerant. I also take probiotics, not always the same kind, and drink kombucha now and then.

Coconut milk is recomended only in small amounts after you have been on the diet for a while, so don't go overboard with it.

In my non-scientific opinion, it is better to do the diet without dairy than to not do it at all (and stay on grain and processed food).

The first couple of weeks on the diet are the toughest, but were well worth it for me. Good luck!

I make yogurt with homemade almond milk. A cup of raw almond whirled in my Vita-Mix with water for 10 minutes which gets it the perfect temp to add the starter (GI Pro). I bought a yogurt maker wit 8 serving size cups. It works great!


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

I've not tried the SCD, but I also haven't pushed it out of thought yet... I try not to do dairy either. I tried some coconut milk yogurt and it was SOOOO good.

Personally, coconut milk soothes my stomach.

I have been gluten and dairy free since the end of Jan and on SCD since May and am gradually recovering. I know I am lactose intolerant, but may also be casein intolerant as I don't cope with most dairy. However, I have been making the SCD milk-based 24 hour yogurt most of the way through, and seem to be able to cope with that ok.

It seems that not only is most, if not all of the lactose digested by the bacteria, but the process changes the casein structure, making it more easily metabolised, too.

Just out of interest I was looking for more info on the yogurt and came across a couple threads on different sites that mentioned products like Activia. Although it undoubtedly tastes nice, it contains sugar which is extremely counter-productive as sugar feeds the very bacteria we are trying to replace with the good. Can't see the point of them, myself. They are very over-priced and very over-hyped.

It's surprising how nice the SCD yogurt is, made with whole milk and the addition of a good handful of blueberries and other tolerated fruit give all the sweetness we need plus extra nutrients. If it is dripped, it is even creamier and I have made it with the addition of some cream too, which I would normally not be able to cope with at all, but is fine in the yogurt.

Just a note - I have been having coconut milk in drinks, but read the other day that it has been implicated in high cholesterol. Apparently, fresh coconut is ok, but with tinned, some is processed in such a way that it turns it into a hydrogenated product. It is very annoying as I can't have rice milk because of the high carb content and gluten contamination, oat milk may or may not be gluten contaminated, almond milk is very expensive and difficult to find and, apart from the fact that the stuff is bad news, I can't tolerate soy milk.

I've bought a couple coconuts and have little choice but to try and make my own. Anyone made it successfully?


Ali - 50 - struggled with what I now know to be GI symptoms and poor carb digestion for at least 35 years! Diabetic type II (1997). Mother undx Celiac - lifelong diabetic Type 1 & anemic (plus 1 stillborn and 10 miscarriages after me). Father definitely very GI.

Stopped gluten & dairy, Jan 08, but still other issues so dropped most carbs and sugar and have been following the Specific Carb Diet (SCD) since March 08. Recovery slow but steady and I can now eat a much broader range of foods especially raw which are good for my digestion and boost my energy level.

Not getting better? Try the SCD - it might just change your life.........

I just ran across a casein free SCD webpage. I have not read it, though. http://gapsdiet.com/Home_Page.html

About the coconut milk, I do not know, but maybe one of the nomilk pages has some info? paleodiet pages are around somewhere, and Don Wiss has several milk-and grain-free pages somewhere on the web. http://donwiss.com/

yes, he has coconut recipes http://nomilk.com/coconut.txt
