Yes, in general. The only exception I can think of is ghee, which is sort of a casein free butter alternative. I am extremely dairy sensitive and I have no issues with ghee. Anything else that might be labeled as dairy and casein free would be... (more)

Drop the Casein. It is the worst of the milk proteins and probably responsible for your problems.

The easy solution would be to buy grass-fed raw milk. However, if we make yogurt using pasteurized, homogenized milk, are there any risks associated with this? (Oxidized cholesterol, denatured proteins...etc etc).

Fermentation takes a dead (pasteurized) food and turns it back into a living food (teeming with good bacteria). So in that sense, it is beneficial. It won't bring back all the live enzymes (like lactase) and whatever immunoglobulins in raw milk... (more)

Hey, Mario. If you digest dairy proteins fine, then casein should be of no issue with digestion either, as 80% of milk protein is casein (the other 20% is the beloved whey). The primary difference between casein and whey is the breakdown rate. ... (more)

Can anybody explain this phenomenon? I guess it has something to do with the curdling of cheese...it coagulates the proteins....and for butter, the casein is lost in the whey?

Casein molecules do slightly change their molecular structure as they clump in the culturing process to form a solid yogurt as opposed to a liquid milk. It's still casein, however, and if you are sensitive or allergic to casein, I'd avoid it. (more)
