Hi folks, I have heard that people with a dairy allergy can tolerate butter. Does anyone know if this is true?

Some people, not all. The proteins are distributed a little differently. You know someone can be allergic to the white of an egg, but not the yolk? So, presumably, if you separate the egg, the remaining yolk would be safe. Except that it's almost impossible to remove every trace of the white, so the tiny bit of protein that's still there can cause a reaction in someone with a severe allergy.

This is not true. Even if the allergy is not IGe or IGg mediated... butter contains milk protien and should not be given to someome with a dairy allergy. There are other sources of good fat, coconut oil, palm kernal oil, golden pea butter. It' s just not worth the risk of making an allergy worse. (check out miss robens allergy grocer)

I'm allergic to milk and I have a MUCH worse reaction to butter than I do to skim milk.

Not true for me!

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

It's true for me, but I'm not sure that I have a true allergy and not just a sensitivity.

We have a true dairy allergy in our house and he can tolerate ghee, which is clarified butter. All of the casein is removed. He reacts immediately and visibly to dairy, but not with ghee.
