Casein Free Where To Start?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free for almost a year and a half, but I still have stomach symptoms. I was thinking about trying to eliminate casein, so I was just wondering what ingredients to look for and what foods to avoid. I did have a lactose intolerance blood test which was negative, so I don't think lactose itself is a problem.

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin,

As a biologist with both casein and gluten allergies, I understand why the two go hand in hand. The amino acid sequence of both proteins are so simular that when your antibodies are geared to attack one of the proteins, it will also attack the other. The best book that has become my bible is Dangerous Grains, by Dr. Braly and Hoggan, both celiac sufferers. It explains so much and has made my gut pain free now. Not only that my type 2 diabetes and MS symptoms, and migraines are gone! I have always been a 6 foot thin Dane who never smoked, remained fit and could not figure out why my body was falling apart. Then when I was diagnosed with gluten intollerance after another scary heart arythmia ER trip, my life changed.

The best way to be gluten/casein free is to buy oriental cook books and have great stir frys over wild rice or rice noodles, being careful that you use gluten free soy sauce. Heck! We can even make lasagne using rice noodles and baby white lima bean hummus as a replacement cheese! Which even goes well on pizza!

It can be done!
