Well if there's something in milk that they can't process, what is it if it isn't lactose?

lactose is the sugars in milk. The human body usually has an enzyme (lactase) that aids in digesting the lactose. Those who don't manufacture their own lactase will not be able to digest lactose, and often get stomach pains, etc., when they ingest milk products.

Those of us who are allergic to milk, are usually allergic to the protein in milk, called casein. Symptoms can vary when ingesting milk, and the severity of symptoms also vary. My particular symptoms to having dairy products is itchy skin. If I persist and keep eating it, my ears will be affected and I get vertigo. YMMV

A new non-dairy products.

Cultured Coconut Milk, by So Delicious
With 10 active and live cultures

This products has way less carbs than their "yogurt" type product. For 1 cup it has 6g carbs with 3g fiber = 3g net carbs.

1 cup is a lot, and it's thick. I drink 1/2 cup and dilute it with water. It is unsweetened, so I usually put in the equivilent of 1/2 t. sugar - usually liquid splenda.

Finding cultured anything that doesn't have dairy in it is difficult. This product really fits a need for a low-carber.

I first saw it at Natural Grocers about a month ago, in their dairy case.

Interesting! I'll look for it at the Natural Grocers I go to next time I go to town. I've tried the coconut yogurt, forget which brand, and didn't really care for it.

So Delicious is the only brand I have seen that makes coconut yogurt. This c. milk product is much better in my opinion than their yogurt - which I have had, but mix it with coconut cream because it has higher carbs than I want.

I enjoy the unsweetened almond milk over the watery consistency of coconut milk, but that is a personal preference. Whole foods has yogurt made from almond mile, but I haven't checked the label yet - many yogurts have way too much sugar. Let me know if anyone has any experience with the non dairy yogurts.

The coconut milk I use comes in a can. It is not watered down, and when stirred up it is the consistency of thick cream.

The cultured coconut milk I mentioned above is like slightly thinned yogurt.

I have bought coconut milk *beverage*, which is a lot like almond milk - very watery. I don't use it, or almond milk, because there really nothing there. I can water down the canned coconut milk to make it more like cow's milk if that's what I want.

The other reason I use canned coconut milk is that the coconut fat separates out of the liquid and rises to the top, and I can turn the can over, open it and pour off the liquid, and then have the coconut "cream" left - fewer (if any) carbs than the contents of the can all mixed up.

So Delicious makes the yogurt type product, which they call cultured coconut milk and comes in the same type of container as regular yogurt. It has way too many carbs per container than I can do. That's why I was so happy to find their other product, which is in a plastic "jar" shaped like a milk bottle. It is also called cultured coconut milk - but doesn't have all the carbs in it that the yogurt-type product does.

That said, the coconut "yogurt" is tasty - even the plain - and the texture is yogurt-like.

I once made coconut milk yogurt - but had to use a milk-based starter to do it.

I notice you are sensitive to diary and eggs, which is what my physician is telling me (I am celiac). Do you have any experience with your crp level coming into line when you lowered your intake of those foods. My A1C is at 5.7, down from 6.1 a few months ago; I am due to go in again for tests. But my crp was last tested at 15, which my physician says is due to intestinal inflammation. Hard to wrap my head around. The first time it came up at 11 and I had to go for an angiogram, of course it was fine, then everyone threw up their hands. So I have been looking for where the inflammation came from. So just wondering if anyone else has had experience of gut healing and lowering that number. MY triglycerides are low, my good cholesterol is good, my bad cholesterol is high, but on checking with a vap test, the particles are big and fluffy. I eat about 35 gr. of carbs a day. I feel a lot better than last winter before I knew my blood sugar had gone awry on me. Thanks in advance.
