I note that you say in one of your blogs that Powdered Whey is a good source of protein. Does the body use this part of milk in a different way than liquid or fresh milk?
I am confused. Also, I have read other places that certain forms of milk products are OK, such as Greek Yogurt, some cheese, etc. just not actual milk. HELP me figure this out please!Angel

Hi janieruth

I was trying to find the post you are referring to and the only one I can find is the post I wrote about glutathione. Was there another?

Whey protein was on my doctor's list of ways to raise glutathione but it's not something I advocate. First of all, there are much better ways of raising glutathione. Second, I actually do not advocate the use of whey protein. Please see this Mayo Clinic article for more info. I've also read that a lot of whey protein powder is contaminated.

The dairy issue really depends on your goals. To be truly casein-free you won't be consuming any milk products. Some forms have less casein, but if you really want to be casein-free you will switch to dairy alternatives like almond milk, coconut yogurt, etc.

I hope that answered your questions but please let me know if you have any more! Shy

Yes, the glutathione entry was the one I saw. Coconut yogurt, almond yogurt have some additives that I am unsure about using. I have looked and found a way to try making my own almond milk yogurt, but, I will have to first make the almond milk, not a biggie, just need to find the time.

The whey I have used is from grass fed cows and cold processed. I am in pain at all times and the dairy is the thing I haven't yet removed from my diet. I subscribe to Dr. Mercola's newsletter and use some of his supplements including the whey I mentioned above.

I have seen other protein supplements listed which do not contain either soy or whey. Do you have a favorite that you use. I would use the unflavored type.

I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question, thanks, Jane

PS, because I have diabetes that is difficult to control I am on a very restricted carb diet. Coconut and Almond yogurts do not have much or any protein. That is why I have not used them and would like to supplement with a Protein source. Jane Blush

I know what you mean about the additives - I have to look very hard for ones without carrageenan and too many other things.

I completely understand your frustration! Please note that not everyone has to follow a gluten-free, casein-free diet. These things don't affect everyone. I have to admit that I am more concerned with gluten but very occasionally I will have cheese when I need protein and there is nothing else available. I have not noticed as much of a problem with these foods, even after eliminating them. I am concerned with the effects of the large proteins on the gut and I try to avoid them as much as possible, but GFCF is not "mandatory" for people with MTHFR. I just notice that a lot of people are trying to follow this diet so that's why I focus on these recipes.

I don't use protein supplements so I'm afraid I cannot assist in that area. Sounds like you have a very good quality form that you use and I do trust Dr. Mercola so I think you are fine.

Let me know if I can help with anything else =)

A protein (powder) I might suggest, since I've not seen it mentioned is Hemp. I prefer the taste of the hearts as opposed to the powder form. Hemp is regarded as a perfect protein. It is of course dairy, egg, soy, gluten, sugar and corn free.
