Just my experience with it, been doing it since 2005. Casein free is a lot harder for me than gluten free. I'm also egg free and corn syrup free, although I admit I cheat a little on that one.

I only use Rice Drink. I get the enriched one that has calcium in it. I use Earth Balance for a margarine substitute. I do use some dairy products, just not cow's milk. For example, water buffalo yogurt is very good. I try to get it on sale because it is expensive.

for gluten free check out the specific carbohydrate diet. aka breaking the vicious cycle. this diet has a HUGE on-line resource. you can basically do it without buying the book, but it is cheap and is a nice reference to have.

i dont know about any casein free diet. that is the major protein in milk. so if you cant do casein, basically you cant do any real dairy products. bummer.
