When Should I Introduce Dairy?

by Jordan Reasoner


We get a ton of questions about Dairy products every day. Most people aren’t sure what to do because it’s a grey area in many low-carb diets.

For example, dairy is allowed on the SCD Diet as long as the lactose sugar is removed. So things like 24-hour fermented yogurt and aged cheese are ok to eat and supposed to help you feel better.

But some low-carb diets don’t allow dairy at all… and others allow raw milk.

So you may be asking yourself whether or not you should be eating it at all.

Not only that, but dairy can be a strong trigger for digestive problems in certain people.

So when should you introduce dairy?

Is it OK to drink raw milk?

What if you don’t tolerate cow’s milk yogurt?

I answer these questions and more in this video. Hint: It all starts with your symptoms… not what diet you’re following.

I hope it clears up any questions you have about dairy.

(One more thing… if you stay till the end I share my current point of view on Colostrum).

In good health,

– Jordan

You might want to look at this post, especially down in the comments section, which addresses the problem for some people with the particular strain of probiotics found in dairy.

I wanted to post for the benefit of anyone with IBS and RLS. Much to my astonishment, I have discovered a connection between my intake of even 24 hour fermented dairy(yogurt, kefir,) as well as butter and cheese, to my RLS. I discovered it when one of my 24 hour cultures of homemade yogurt, for IBS, didn’t turn out and it took a week to get another culture finished. My RLS symptoms stopped during that time. I have tested the theory and it has proven, in my case, to be a culprit. With even a taste of dairy, I can have RLS symptoms for many days. It may be casein, because the lactose, to my understanding, has been removed during a 24 hour ferment. I have not experimented with ghee yet.

Can anyone restate what Jordan’s thoughts on colostrum are? The video won’t work for me.
