I am blood type B and have a cow milk protein allergy.  I can only have goat yogurt, therefore, but an ingredient in it is tapioca- an avoid.  Since yogurt is so beneficial, however, I was wondering if still eating it would outweigh the problems from the avoid.  People have suggested I make my own yogurt, but I'm a college student and its unlikely for me to be able to do that at school.  I'd appreciate any opinions :O) thnx!!

Hi MM and welcome in this forum.
I 'd look for organic goat yogurt or organic goat milk. Organic goat milk  (without the preservant i339 as the goat milk I found in Italy in the common shops) can become yogurt overnight in a bowl near a central heating or a stove with added probiotics of your choice. You can also put the milk in a bowl inside a pan with warm water , not hot water, the temperature of a good warm bath, and cover it as you can to keep for some hours the temperature. If in your place you cannot make your yoghurt, you have to check in the organic or natural product shops what you can find without avoids.
You will find it !
best wishes Maria Giovanna

mm,
That's a tough position to be in!  I'm pretty attached to my daily goat yogurt and, like you, I don't do well on cow dairy.  I'm one of the folks who make my own yogurt, and it is so easy I think you might be surprised.
You would need a tiny ice chest, the size for holding a six-pack.  And you will need some pint-sized jars.  I make 3 pints at a time.

Heat the goat milk to a boil and set off the heat to cool.  I let it sit for 1/2 to 1 hour, depending on the temperature in the house.  The milk should feel similar to a bath, not hot enough to be uncomfortable if you stick your pinky finger in it for a few seconds.

Pour the milk into your very clean glass jars.  Add a Tb of pre-made yogurt to each jar.  Close the lid and shake well.  Then set the jars into the little ice chest that is filled with hot tap water up to the level of the bottom of the lids.  

Close the chest, set on a towel or rug and cover with a folded towel or small blanket.  Leave it to sit for 8 or 9 hours and you should have yogurt.

I'm thinking you could use the store bought yogurt for your initial starter, and then save a little from each batch for the next batch..........

Any reason the store bought would not work as a starter?

That's the brand/kind I use to make ghee.

I don't think that adding culture would make it avoid for O's.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

That's a fine idea.

I was curious, when you said you have a cow's milk allergy, how was this confirmed? Did an allergist run a test for this, and if so what kind of test was it?

I am sure what you say is accurate, but maybe someone who knows more about the BTD than I do can explain about this, since B's like me are supposed to be the one blood type who can handle dairy best. I eat a lot of yogurt (this summer switched to a really good plain Greek yogurt) but now I wonder if the reason I can't lose weight more easily is maybe because of a mild version of cow's milk incompatability. Just curious on this.

Hi colojd..in response to your question..I actually had my cow's milk protein allergy confirmed through a colonoscopy and an endoscopy.  I was really really sick with digestive problems and they couldn't figure it out until they tested the tissue in my stomach.  Starting this BTD, however, I found I can tolerate goat milk products really well.

the longer you stay compliant the more your gut lining will heal and thus, perhaps even your allergy!!

many Bs have solved their lactose problem following this lifestyle!

you are on the right track now!

About the culture in butter... that is simply the way butter is made in large parts of Europe....
It is called Cultured butter - keeps better than the sweet butter and has a bit of tangy flavour

If you use your own yoghurt as a starter :mine seem to loose its power after 5-6 times
I dont know why... but it does.... and I have to buy a new fresh starter/yoghurt.
