Reaction To Dairy Substitutes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a reaction to the milk substitutes? I get pins and needles from soy, almond, and coconut milks. Haven't tried rice or hemp yet. Does anyone getthis type of reaction? I am lactose intolerant and also get the pins and needles from dairy products and some fruit. I am almost 4 months on a gluten free diet. I would like to find a good dairy substitute for baking and for breakfast cereal. Thanks for any explanation or ideas.

What do all of those substitutes have in common? Read the ingredients list.

Have you considered salicylate intolerance?

Hi Andrea, and welcome to the forum.

I had neurological reactions (and still do if I get CC) before all of the other symptoms stepped in.

The only milk (I tried them all) that I could tolerate was coconut milk, but from a can, and one that didn't list any additives. I actually made my own coconut milk once too, that was a major pia. Once you give your gut a chance to heal, you may be able to tolerate dairy again.

For me, that took over a year, which seems like a really long time, but there are some great bloggers that make it easier (and interesting) to be gluten-free DF. (Coffee is going to be tough on you for awhile, maybe try green tee until your gut starts healing.)

check the substitutes are dairy free and gluten free, also soy may be an issue if you have dairy issues

rice milk is good, if you use it for baking you may need to add a tiny bit more fat to the recipe as there is a lot less in rice milk than regular dairy

our daughter is celiac and has anaphylaxis towards milk in any form, we use silk soy and almond milk and have never had an issue

so delicious coconut milk beverage is gluten and dairy free and very tasty, our daughter would drink it all day! It has fat so will replace the fat you miss out on from dairy, and is fantastic in baking, rice is better for savoury thing though

Sub dairy has additives that are worse than dairy itself. I would be watching for carrageenan, any gum, and if you are soy sensative then that of course too. I tried many but I cannot tolerate carrageenan or the gums and actually found I did better by taking a lactose aide and using actual milk.

Many of those (including the store bought dairy) contain the added vitamin A or D. There are multiple studies showing problems with synthetic vitamin D, plus I have an acquaintance who can't tolerate any synthetic vitamin D.
