Lactose Or Casein?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Something just started bothering me again. I have not eaten out, and have been over anal about my meals. I'm assuming it's dairy. In 2007 I cut out all my dairy(lactose and casein) and egg. I felt great and lost a ton of weight. I dont drink milk(I use almond) and I use coconut milk coffee creamer. I cut cheese as well. Tonight I made wings for the football game. There was nothing on them but salt and pepper. I dipped them in ranch. My stomach is killing me, I have reflux and heartburn. For lunch I had a salad with ham turkey and roastbeef, with mayo, mustard, and vinegar(I know sounds gross. I miss the mayo and mustard more than I miss the bread)

Tomorrow I'm going to cut the dairy. Do I cut ALL dairy, including the "hidden" dairy( like listed in the allergen menu) or just the obvious milk and cheese?

Anyone know of a non dairy sour cream? I can't find the so delicious yogert anywhere. I really want to try it. I use earth balance butter.

In the Hidden Valley bottled Ranch dressing there are several things that could be an issue depending what you ahve problems with: soybean oil, egg yolk, nonfat buttermilk, soy, vinegar, xanthan gum. It makes my stomach sick, for me I think it is the xanthan gum.

I use Albertson's store brand dry ranch mixed with plain (not sweetened) Greek yogurt.

Mayo also has soybean oil, eggs and vinegar.

It could be the dairy but I would would wonder if soy, eggs or the xanthan gum could also be culprits.

test yourself with lactose-free dairy items to see. If the symptoms are entirely gastro, it could very well be lactose, but casein is a possibility too. if you have any neuro symptoms at all, casein is more likely.

Going back as long as I remember I have never eaten ranch dressing (after one trial :ph34r: ). Don't know why, don't care to know why. Never had it when I was growing up, don't need it now. Best Foods mayo used to be semi-okay when they made it with canola oil; now it's soybean oil. Now I have Alfa One mayo made with rice bran oil from Australia :) in the fridge. Don't use it a lot because I have weaned myself from mayo back to my Kiwi ways after all those California years. Hub still goes through a jar of Best Foods every week or two :blink:

With the dairy, I would cut out all obvious dairy and see how it goes. If you have to go farther, then you have to go farther. Have you tried making the SCD 24-hour yogurt? I do that in the U.S. by wrapping an electric heating pad around a plastic 1 litre jar of yogurt I have mixed up for 24 hours.

Your reply was a woah for me. I never drew that correlation before gastro-lactose, caesin-neuro.

I'm cutting out a bunch of foods including dairy right now on the GAPS diet, but I'm not being OCD about it. I'm using ghee for frying because it has almost no casein, and I broke down at a coffee shop and had a little cream in my coffee yesterday. B)

I was figuring on going to "allergy diet" careful if I didn't start feeling better but it seems to be helping.

I can tell you from personal experience that casein-neuro/lactose-gastro is NOT true for everyone. I had stomach-aches from cow casein when I first went gluten-free. Goat or sheep dairy was not a problem so I know it wasn't lactose.

naw, what I said was, lactose - gastro, casein - gastro and/or neuro. I've just never heard of neuro symptoms coming from lactose is all.

Check your almond milk! Ugh, I got hit yesterday and bad!! I'd bought almond milk before and was fine. This one had carrageenan in it, and talk about make me sick. I had trouble sleeping last nigh and my stomach feels a mess yet today.

It seems that since I've given up gluten, I'm more intolerant to dairy than I was! It really affects my sinus. I've been trying to cut it out. I tend to get anxiety attacks when I stop it. So right now, I'm taking two college courses and I can't afford to lose sleep due to anxiety.. so I'm cutting it down slowly...trying to wean myself. It's harder to get off dairy than it was quitting smoking 23 years ago!! :blink:

Ah, that makes more sense. Hard to figure how you could get neuro symptoms from lactose.

Yes, it's hard! Unfortunately that means we're getting the opiate-like effects. I had to cut out the cheese first, substituting with avocado or nuts. I ate smaller and smaller slices of cheese until I ran out. That got rid of most of the dairy I was eating. Then I finished off my coffee milk over the next few days and I was dairy-free.

Are you gluten-free also?

I dipped them in ranch. ... not all dressings are gluten-free ..

ham turkey and roastbeef ... not all hams [processed meats] are gluten-free ..
