A yogurt batch usually takes me 5-6 hours. Once the multiplying lactobacilli thicken the milk I'm guessing they become less mobile and slow down. A longer time makes a slightly more sour product, so they're still chewing the lactose into lactic... (more)

Hey guys...I know you are not supposed to have soy milk on a paleo diet...but what do you think about these snacks free of dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG?

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)

I recently went to my local fro-yo place and saw that they have frozen sherbet that is dairy free and gluten free. Is that considered paleo?

joanna_4 0 · August 08, 2013 at 1:16 AM

it probably has a lot of weird food colorings, gums, and sugars. i'd avoid it if it were me, but if you are generally healthy and not affected by junk food, then a little splurge won't hurt!

If your new diet is a drastic shift from your old diet, it can trigger major changes in various hormone levels; especially over the short to medium term. This can also explain the seemingly targeted nature of the rash. I won't give the vague... (more)

My own feeling is the probiotic cultures make up for less than ideal milk, as long as you tolerate pasteurized milk in the first place. Raw cultured milk would be better, but too pricey. Personally I prefer kefir because you don't have to... (more)
