How can I eat to avoid casein?

ANSWER

  • Instead of ice cream, try fruit-flavored soy or rice-based frozen desserts, sorbets, and puddings.
  • Use vegetable margarine for cooking and to spread on toast.
  • Avoid foods fried in batter, which may contain milk. In some cases, foods fried in oil that has been used to fry something containing milk might be contaminated with small amounts of milk and can cause a reaction.
  • When eating out, ask the wait staff detailed questions about menu items.
  • Explore new foods like vanilla-flavored soy milk, which some people prefer to cow's milk.
