Gluten Free/dairy Free Sour Cream?
0

7 posts in this topic

I know there's a dairy free one, made by Tofutti, but they're not 100% sure about it being gluten-free or not... and I really can't have ANY gluten. I'm also trying to stay dairy free but I absolutely LOVE sour cream...

Does anyone know of a company that makes this? And possibly a good dairy free cheese-like product for nachos?

My kids like Follow Your Heart cheese. My husband likes it, too. I don't, but I'd rather eat no cheese than eat it (or, eat it in very sparing amounts). We have Follow Your Heart sour cream in the refrigerator, but haven't actually tried it yet! (The Skinny "adult female dog" authors are the ones who recommend this brand of cheese on their Web site. The cheese does melt and shred.) There is a new cheese out there called Daiya, which we had on Amy's gluten free macaroni (frozen section). It tasted much more like cheese. It melts more for pizza; locally, a pizza place uses Daiya instead. I think it can be bought only online right now.

I'm definitely looking into those things... thank you! When you DO taste the sour cream though, could you let me know please? I absolutely LOVE sour cream and I cannot go dairy free completely until I figure a way to get that. I don't even care if it's as good or not. I just want something like it... haha. I wonder if Whole Foods has that? I'll check. And I need to look into that cheese too. Daiya. *Looks it up*

Thank you!! Wooo, gluten-free and dairy-free here I come! [:

Update: Daiya is amazing. Little salty, but amazing.

Also. About the Follow Your Heart sour cream... is there another soy-free alternative? Probably not, but I can always hope. =/

Hm...good to know.

Lyco -- are you new to the gluten-free diet? I didn't have sour cream for the first four months, but now I can have it without too much issue. I'm back to eating cheese, too. Again, took about four months, but now i feel much better on it. My point: over time, you can probably have it again, if you are willing to give it up for just a little while. Though sometimes I could get away with it with a lactase supplement. Before now, I used rice cheese, which is actually pretty good for salads and nachos...never used it for pizza. But the texture is about right, and the flavor is darn close -- it is very mild.

We just tasted the Follow Your Heart--finally. I don't think it tastes like sour cream. It wasn't horrible. But, my husband and son liked it (especially with strawberries). I think it would be ok in small amounts. I do remember making a vegan sour cream at one point with silken tofu--the key is the lemon juice in it to give it the sour flavor.

I think raw, soaked cashews are supposed to make a good sour cream as well--and soy free. (For fake dips/spreads--raw nuts are the best--very much like cheese. They work in lasagna, too--the tinkiyada noodles are good.) The best vegan parmesan is Parma--it's a nutritional yeast and raw walnut blend (no soy)--it's great on Italian dishes.

I'm pretty new to it, yeah. I've been diagnosed for a year, but up until about 7 weeks ago I would be on the diet for a while and then I'd cheat.

Not going to do that anymore though. Stupid, stupid idea.

@nicolebeth

I'll have to look into those cashews. Hmmm. That sounds interesting. Thank you!

    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
    •   Could try causally asking your family to get the blood test done next time they are at the doctors. They could have it and only have minor or no symtoms to it. There is a form of it called silent celiacs with no outward symptoms but it is still destroying your villi and causing your body to slowly degrade. Doing so could shed some light on other issues, make family more understanding to your issues, and help them out in the long run.    I was adopted at only a few weeks old, so my issues run a bit deeper with both leaning about this disease and getting anyone in the family to understand it. Does not help my birth mother still to this day refuses to release updated medical records or accept any kind of contact.    >.> I give advice all the time, I like to feel useful to others, and can be oblivious to others feelings and reactions due to a form of autism called Aspergers.  Bit of a pain, but the feeling of being of use to others is very rewarding even if sometimes confused with being helpful over being a ass or someone overly intrusive.    I just wish others had helped me out earlier with this disease.   PS Anonymous, you keep posting on older threads, ALOT recently. Not a bad thing, just something I picked up on and piqued my interest/concern with how out of date some information might be.
    • Hello Anonymous, and if nobody has said as much yet, welcome Don't worry (difficult to do when it can cause anxiety :P) it's very early days and you have a lot of healing to come.  If you've not already seen it there's advice and further info here:    It gets easier over time as checking becomes routine, you know your 'safe' products and your eating pattern changes. You'll get there  Maybe start a thread of your own if you'd like some input from others? Finally, back on topic. My Aunt has narcolepsy and although she's fiercely resistant to giving up gluten she has now made a connnection to eating bread and it's onset. As often, not conclusive but suggestive...
    • Hello again   Well first thing is the - Usual disclaimers apply... and this is something you have to follow up with your doctors as you know. But it's helpful sometimes to get another perspective so here's this layman see's from outside.  What I have seen from the various results posted here is that people's numbers vary wildly and, just as important, the numbers often don't bear any direct relationship to the level of intestinal damage revealed via endoscopy. Ultimately although you're not scoring much above positive, you are scoring a positive  and there are a couple of other risk factors you've mentioned that are suggestive if not conclusive - you have another autoimmune which raises the odds of having another one for example.  You've had two tests that are positive. The purpose of taking the second test was either to invalidate or confirm the first. I'd suggest it's achieved the latter, at least inasmuch as a GI may want to check you via endoscopy. That's still the 'gold standard' of celiac diagnosis and would give you an idea if there's any intestinal damage. I suspect with 2 positive tests and the history above that's what they'll suggest.  If your doctor or GI doesn't want to proceed with that you have a decision to make. Push for a second opinion or new doctor or if you're done with testing give the gluten free diet a proper try. Make a journal and see if some of those subtle things you reference may actually be symptoms. Fwiw, there are a lot of people here whose thyroid issues improved dramatically once they were gluten free, so whether celiac or gluten sensitive you should certainly give the diet a try. Only however once the testing is completed and remember:
