Buffalo Milk Mozzarella

Recommended Posts

I know I can handle goat's & sheep milk cheese (at least small quantities of them ... a little fortunately goes a long way). I've seen other casein-intolerants say the same thing. (Naturally, reactions are individual.) I haven't seen anyone mention buffalo milk cheese, though.

Anyone have any experience with this or have read something on the subject? Maybe someone else has been a guinea pig on this. I would hate to set myself up for anything like what I go through with casein :(

I only tried these other cheeses after six months of healing BTW I think you would want to avoid them during healing; if you have a leaky gut you might create antibodies to these proteins too.

I'm not being a pure little vegan I know. But I only followed the diet because of how it made me feel, not for ideological reasons. For instance, I eat honey and occasionally have animal foods. Just throwing this in here to preclude anyone saying, "Uh, you say you don't eat animal products ... what do you think cheese is made from." :lol: It is just that I can't have soy cheese anymore and I'm told that the casein-free rice cheese tastes like wax. I can't have "uncheese" concoctions made with nutritional yeast, either.

OK, I'll stop whining. I just thought it might be nice to occasionally have a little real mozzarella. I remember going to Italy some years ago & a waiter telling me I could eat the stuff -- "This isn't cheese; it is fresh mozzarella."

Daughter and I can't eat any form of milk products that come from an animal.

I have tried the buffalo yogurt and Mozzerella. I had a little difficulty with them. I also have a cholesterol problem and in some of the yogurt there are 6 grams of saturated fat because they use the whole milk. I may try it again. I did like the Mozzerella. :)

I have tried goat yogurt and that seems to be ok. I cannot touch dairy at all.

Buffalo milk and cow milk are very similar.

Goat milk has simpler proteins and are often tolerated better among people with dairy issues.

Cow's milk provides 67kcl and buffalo milk provides 117kcl of energy per 100 ml. The protein content of cows and buffalo milk is about 3.2gm and 4.25gm per 100ml respectively. The milk proteins mainly consist of casein (about 80%) and whey (about 20 %).

Also, remember that since each mammal has protein and sugar variants in their milk, it's possible to be allergic to the milk of only one, or one set of, mammals.

Unlike cow's milk, goat's milk does not contain agglutinin. As a result,

the fat globules in goat's milk do not cluster together, making them

easier to digest. Like cow's milk, goat's milk is low in essential fatty

acids, because goats also have EFA-destroying bacteria in their ruminant

stomachs. Yet, goat milk is reported to contain more of the essential

fatty acids linoleic and arachnodonic acids, in addition to a higher

proportion of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids. These are easier

for intestinal enzymes to digest. Different protein. Goat milk protein

forms a softer curd (the term given to the protein clumps that are formed

by the action of your stomach acid on the protein), which makes the

protein more easily and rapidly digestible.

So.. the upshot is, all milk has lots of casein in it.. otherwise it

wouldn't BE milk... but there are different types of casein and for

someone who has a casein sensitivity, goat milk may provide an alternative

to which they don't react.

Thanks everyone. Maybe I will try a little bit of buffalo mozzarella next time I see it ... if I have the time to deal with any adverse reaction. But I probably shouldn't go out of my way to find the stuff.

Nice thing about goat's cheese is that a little goes a long way in flavoring things. A couple times I've made gluten-free pasta, with some asparagus & garlic sauteed in a bit of olive oil ... sprinkle on a little bit of goat cheese crumbles ... heavenly.

    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.
