I had testing that showed I have antibodies to Butyrophilin in dairy. Also 12 wheat components including gluten. Is there butyrophilin in ghee?

Daiya "cheese" is a horrible, processed, monstrosity of a food, not paleo, and you should get your husband off it. Seriously, look at this crap: *Filtered Water, Tapioca Starch, Palm Fruit Oil, Expeller Pressed non GMO Canola Oil and/or Expeller Pressed non GMO Safflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Pea Protein Isolate, Natural Vegan Flavors, Vegetable Glycerine, Brown Rice Syrup, Sea Salt, Yeast Extract, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid (Vegan, for flavor), Annatto (for color) Carrageenan, Titanium Dioxide (a naturally occurring mineral), Vegan Enzyme.* Not the crappiest crap I've seen, but still bad.

Yup, it's a milk protein.

Congrats, you're #1 for "butyrophilin ghee" on Google!

Ghee probably doesn't have much butyrophilin in it, as the milk proteins are cooked out, but that doesn't mean it's butyrophilin-free. I'd think you're better off avoiding all dairy to avoid sub-clinical problems due to butyrophilin exposure.

Clarified butter (ghee) is pure fat. There shouldn't be any protein left in it unless it's sub par. So there shouldn't be an issue. I'm sensitive to dairy protein but can handle ghee just fine. You should be able to as well, just don't stray to regular butter. It has the dreaded protein it. Stick with ghee and you'll be a happy camper.

May I ask what test you took that told you so specifically about the antibodies?

I had same Cyrex profile, and tried the coconut yogurt as I really missed yogurt. It is a good substitute, given no other alternative. I enjoy it.

According to Cyrex Lab Array 4 test I need to avoid butyrophilin, too. It's protein but has a link to fat globules so I don't think I can use whey isolate or ghee even though the test came back with no reaction to lactose, whey, or any other dairy component--but my reaction to butyrophilin is literally off the chart. I have been researching butyrophilin and it looks like goat and other milks also have butyrophilin besides just cow milk. I can't do soy....anybody else in my situation? What do any of you all do when you are missing cheese or yogurt. My chiropractor said that they make coconut yogurt...so has anyone tried yogurt made from coconut?

Meepsiswellfed: I also need to avoid butyrophilin according to Cyrex Lab Array 4 test.

I highly doubt you'll react to the minuscule amounts of butyrophilin in well-clarified ghee.

Though I would rather not have yogurt then eat coconut yogurt it is a decent alternative. I just balance the calories vs the taste. I use coconut milk to make ice cream often and sub almond milk when I do not have coconut milk in the house. It is great.

I use rice dream, almond milk and coconut milk as substitutes for cow or goat milk. My husband uses Daiya cheese products to make macs and cheese, in omelets and on pizza.

godairyfree.com and ohsheglows.com are great websites to look for vegan and diary free options.
