Did you know that an intolerance to Cow’s milk could be due to a sensitivity to one of two main proteins, whey and casein? Other milks, such as goat or sheep milk could also act as trigger foods. Eggs can also be responsible for food intolerance reactions, both the egg white which is primarily protein, as well as the more fatty (but tasty!) yolk.
Manifesting as bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), weight gain, fatigue, skin problems, migraines or joint pain, even a mild food intolerance to dairy or eggs may have a major impact upon a person’s day to day activities, and the inclusion of these foods in a western diet is so common that the actual intolerances can be difficult to find, and also to avoid successfully.
Julia is a market trader, and also studying speech and language therapy. Julia has suffered with regular migraines for over 22 years, and has tried everything to get rid of them, even ice baths!
It wasn’t until Julia had a Smartblood food intolerance test recommended to her by one of her friends that she found out that she had raised IgG antibody levels to many dairy products. Replacing these foods with others on the advice of a Smartblood nutritional therapist has made a big difference in Julia’s life – her migraines have vanished, and she would recommend a Smartblood test to anybody.

Sweltering summer days just aren’t the same without a seasonal sweet treat. But if you’re one of the many people with a dairy intolerance, you could find you’re getting more than you bargain for when you order that 99.
But, thanks to the growing free from market and increasing awareness around food intolerance in general, there are more and more ways to get that sunny summer taste without the dairy.
When it comes to making connections between our diets and our health, dairy often gets a bad rep. The increasing availability of Free From alternatives, combined with celebrity-endorsed food trends and the rise of veganism have all made going milk-free more mainstream. But is dairy really a problem?
World Milk Day was introduced in 2001 by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations to celebrate the dairy industry and recognise the importance of milk as a global food.
Around the world, milk is a dietary staple, with the exception of certain Asian and African countries. But statistics show that our interest in cow’s milk is steadily declining.
