Dairy intolerance

For the label-readers amongst us, a place to marvel at food manufacturers' ability to add milk powder to everything.

Dairy intolerance

Postby AB&M » 08 Apr 2012, 20:54

So after some good weeks & even some really good nights of being put to bed we're back at the screaming writhing baby stage. I know I've been lax on the dairy what with eggs & chocolate coming out our ears so currently assuming its this.

I'm attempting to go dairy free again so milk, butter, cheese & chocolate oh & biscuits too <sob>

Is there a better way to check intolerance levels other than falling off the wagon? The past 2/3 days kitten has had curds in her poo again & is clearly v windy & in pain.

Hmm, curds seem telling. I was going to say it could be the caffeine from the chocolate, but curds do suggest it's dairy. :(

Yep, it sounds fairly definitive to me. Sorry :( . I know how hard it is not to eat chocolate at easter.

No, not really and it takes 2-3 weeks to be totally removed from your system.

You can get dairy free chocolate though, some dark chocolate is. You don't need to worry if it says "may contain traces" that just means it is manufactured on machinery where milk products are also made and is largely an arse covering exercise.

Some of the lindt ones have butterfat or other milk products - all need checking. Hotel Chocolate do vegan products (it's where Squirmy's Easter gift came from). Have a look online as they do have little milk/no milk symbols with all their products so you don't have to trawl through all of the ingredient listings.

Ishoukd gave specified. I meant Lindt plain 70% chocolate. All the flavours I've ever looked at have butterfat.

Co-op jaffa cakes are dairy free, or at least they were last year when I was dairy-dodging.

depends to what level LO can tolerate a tiny amount of dairy - most dark choc contaions a wee bit, but if only have an odd square then that would hopefully be ok iyswim? But if you want to do completely dairy free then 9 bars are yummy and dairy free - they do lots of different versions (nutty, pumpkin seeds, flax) and they have carob not choc on top so r completely dairy free. Also I make DD (lactose intolerant) hot choc by using soya milk, cocoa and little sugar - it is quite yummy and gives her a choc treat without any dairy.

Just to add, bourbon biscuits tend to be dairy free - my dad is vegan and will always have a bourbon when they are on offer! Green and Blacks dark chocolate is usually ok.
