I am curious. I understand why we cant have milk because of the sugar that it contains, but unsweetened coconut milk doesnt. i am reading where that is still to be limited. WHY?
also I have also seen that powdered milks..in all forms doesnt contain sugar at all.
So again..why is it we cant have milk?
i guess I missed the explanation on this and I havent read it anywhere in the forum.
thanks for any explanation as to why… & I am NOT lactose intolerant BTW…July 5, 2012 at 11:54 pm #86210

I believe that lactose is a milk sugar. We’re avoiding sugar on the diet, therefore avoiding lactose would also be a good idea. If you can find an organic milk low in lactose, that might be OK in moderation. I actually use organic cow’s milk to make kefir yoghurt and haven’t noticed any reaction to it, although I think the fermentation period allows the bacteria to consume all the sugar present in the milk, though I could be wrong on this.July 6, 2012 at 1:11 am #86211

If I’m not mistaken, coconut milk is just coconut meat diluted mainly with h2o….sometimes other things as well and has low sugars.
Powder milk does have lactose…
Nonfat Dry Milk…..36% dv
Dry Whole Milk……26.5% dv
Dry Buttermilk……34% dvJuly 8, 2012 at 2:25 am #86341
Thanks flailingWcandi and M. hhhmmm..interesting on the powdered milk.
i was actually looking at buttermilk powder when this thought hit me. not that i like buttermilk but i just happened over it. i really love milk and was hoping for a miracle..LOL if anyone finds a milk that we CAN drink..i would love to know.. I DO know we can have unsweetened coconut milk and i am ok with that…but thanks for answering my questions…July 8, 2012 at 9:43 am #86357

I have found unsweetened almond milk to be a great substitute for milk. I find it tastes pretty good, and it is available pretty cheap at costco, grocery stores and health food stores here in Canada, I’m not so sure about the States.July 12, 2012 at 1:25 am #86637

Nestle makes a poweder milk that they advertise as “fat-free” – it’s also Lactose free. Tastes amazing.April 1, 2013 at 9:43 am #101998
I’m confused about keffir made with milk (in the diet’s earlyish stages) – is the milk ok then bec it’s been fermented?
Also, i’ve been making my own almond milk. You could make it with this too?April 2, 2013 at 12:22 am #102059

Almonds can contain high amounts of mold, so you might not want to make almond milk until you’re further into treatment.
Kefir is fine because the bacteria consume the majority of the lactose, plus the bacteria really benefit you by repopulating good gut flora.April 2, 2013 at 1:18 am #102060
Hey thanks. Is it ok to make keffir with milk early on (like 2-3 weeks in), or should you try it with water first?April 2, 2013 at 5:13 am #102068

I think there actually might be more sugar in water kefir than milk, because you feed water kefir straight sugar. Milk kefir has more benefits.April 2, 2013 at 10:17 am #102084
Hey thanks (I miss milky stuff) – i’ll have a crack 🙂May 13, 2013 at 11:17 pm #104478

Hey I may be wrong as it’s all new to me but we’ve found a milk called Oatly from Sweeden. It’s free from milk protien, lactose and Soya…and tastes great…our daughter now drinks it and there’s no reaction.
