If you are lactose intolerant, are you able to eat cheese made from goat or sheeps milk, or does it make you sick too?

Even butter gets me if Im in a flare. If Im not in a fl;are I can usually sneak in an occasional baked sweet but nooo milk. I even tried raw milk. No luck- D for days. no goat cheese or sheeps. but everyone is different. And its one of my biggest triggers for my UC. The last fla re was in part set off by an Indian food dinner- the rice and Naan are both made with yogurt
good luck!

I'm usually lactose intolerant when I'm flaring and when I'm recovering from a flare. Lactaid works really well for me. I've never had problems with butter though, just milk and cheese.

Nor_TX, goats milk is suppose to be fine for lactose intolerant people, but may I suggest a probiotic called primadophilus reuteri made by natures way, one of the things it aids with is lactose intolerance which I had severely, I had it once as a kid and then it went away and came back with a vengance and now I no longer have to use lactaid products but I take the probiotic every day because I also use it to aid with my crohn's colitis and IBS, it's been great with the lactose issue, I haven't had a single mouth ulcer/sore since using it daily either. I highly recommend it since research has recognized that probiotics can be an essential form of therapy for IBD and IBS due to most patients have bacterial overgrowth which often exacerbates their IBD/IBS symptoms.

And it's cheaper than lactaid products too, plus with the convience of taking one/day you don't have to worry if your out and about and you happen to nee a lactaid pill or something.

pb4, thanks for the advice. I'll look for that product. I have been eating goat and sheep's cheese and still get alot of bloating and pain. Maybe this probiotic will help everything.

Thanks

That's odd Sweetie, usually lactose intolerant peeps will have issues with lactose regardless of the source, even ichiban soup and some potatoe chips have lactose in them (I was severe and at the time when I was eating stuff like that it would aggrivate my lactose intolerance) but the yogurt thing is strange too considering most yogurt already has the lactose broken down in it. There are varying degrees of lactose intolerance from what my GP has told me so maybe you're on the milder side but it is weird that you cannot tolerate liquid products that contain lactose but do okay with cheese, mind you I've also been told that hard cheeses (orange like cheddar) don't have as much lactose in them as the softer white cheeses do.

I've been able to find some really nice goat and sheeps cheese at a store near Dallas called Sprouts. I also found soy chocolate pudding which is delicious.

I still get queasy after eating the cheese and I was wondering if anyone else did?

I am lactose intolerant, but I am also very sensitive to whey. I can get away with eating cheese especially aged cheeses because most of the lactose is consumed by the bacteria and the whey is removed. Regular store bought yogurt on the other hand will kill me becuase there is too much lactose, but also way too much whey. Whey is that liquid that forms on the yogurt after it sits in the fridge for a while. I can make my own yogurt following the SCD recipes and if I drip the yogurt which means draining off the whey then I can eat it.

Check out regular kraft cheeses (not american).   They remove the whey durring processing and claim on the package that their cheeses contain 0 grams of lactose.   I'm not sure if thier new Natural Cheeses are lactose free, but the ones in the Blue Packages or in the bricks typically are.
