Enzymes for Dairy consumption??
I am lactose intolerant. However that doesn't mesh soo well with the low carb lifestyle. I have tried higher carb plans like Paleo and regular high carb, low fat plans. The ONLY thing that works for me is Atkins!!!! I have bad bad insulin resistance so can only lose weight eating higher fat, low carb.
Does anyone here take enzymes to help them digest dairy so they can eat/drink cheese, HWC etc????
Just wondering if they work.
Low carb gets boring if all you can eat is meat, fat and veggies LOL
Well, Doesn't hard cheese have little lactose because it's been processed by the yeast?
And doesn't heavy cream have less lactose than the same volume of plain milk?
Yogurt, kefir and other fermented dairy are supposed to have less lactose because that's what is feeding the ferment.
My SDad is Lactose intolerant. He eats yogurt without taking the enzymes, but he will take the enzymes if he has a Non Lactose treated ice cream treat. My mom uses Lactaid milk to make his desserts that call for milk. I'm trying to convince her to use Cream and water instead but they are still afraid of fat.
The same volume of cream has has the carb but 4 times the calories of Milk.
Unprocessed cow milk is about 4.7% lactose.
Butter, Lactose, being a water soluble molecule, will largely be removed, but will still be present in small quantities in the butter unless it is also fermented to produce cultured butter. Clarified butter, however, contains very little lactose and is safe for most lactose-intolerant people.
People can be more tolerant of traditionally made yogurt than milk, because it contains lactase produced by the bacterial cultures used to make the yogurt.
Traditionally made hard cheeses, and soft ripened cheeses may create less reaction than the equivalent amount of milk because of the processes involved. Fermentation and higher fat content contribute to lesser amounts of lactose.
Sour cream If made in the traditional way, this may be tolerable, but most modern brands add milk solids.
I've tried taking Lactaid with no success.
I throw up after consuming dairy and I get major stomach bloating.
Sigh just wanted to know if there was anything I could do???
Wow, Sorry about that. You might not be intolerant, you might be allergic. Have you had any allergy testing? There is a difference tween intolerance and full out allergy.
My Sdad is Not allergic to dairy, he just has trouble digesting it. If he doesn't take lactase enzyme, he doesn't get sick, he just FARTS A LOT ( and may get diarrhea if he's eaten too much)
Some folks are mildly allergic and they get mucous and histamine reactions. If you have a physician, you might want to ask for an allergy test.
Sigh I think your right!!! I think I'm allergic.
I wish there was a cure for that????
