Now Playing: Soy and Butter

My girlfriend and I have started the GFCF/CFSF (/corn-free, soyfree) diet today.  I had 1 comment and 1 question: soy is in just about everything.  Luckily I found some breads that were without, and we love vegetables anyway.  And my sushi seems to be fine without the soy sauce.

We are having trouble finding a butter substitute that doesn't have some soy.  I read either here or another website about Earth Balance spread being good, but it does have soy, as does every other margarine or butter sub I read about.

Is there a soy-less butter substitute, or am I going to have to tough it out without butter?

If you don't want to use cows butter, try goats. My dad loves it. But I have found cow's butter is fine, it doesn't effect most people like milk does.

Hello again,


Butter made from the cow doesn't contain Alpha -1 casin or if it does, it's in such small amounts, you don't have to worrie about it.

Goats Butter has even less if any at all.


Quote from DogtorJ - The Answer:

"Now we know that the biggest difference between cow and goat milk is the absence or low quantity of one protein fraction, alpha S-1 casein. Understanding of this dairy protein not only serves to explain the lower allergy rate to goat milk, but also sends us in the right direction on our search for the culprit behind other immune-mediated food issues. Casein makes up 80% of the protein in cow milk. In bovine milk, 75% of the casein is alpha casein. In goat milk, the majority is beta casein. The dominant component of the alpha casein in cow milk is the alpha S-1 casein, the culprit we just identified as being responsible for most immune reactions, including milk allergies."
