What types of cheese can I feed a child who has a milk allergy?

Avoid bovine: With true bovine (cow) milk allergy, which is rare, you want to avoid any cow milk related products. (cheese or otherwise) feta cheese, made from goat milk is a reasonable product that is readily available.

Verify the difference-allergy vs intolerance, life might be easier. ...Read more

If a person has penicillin allergy, is it safe to eat roquefort, blue, or gorgonzola cheese? Does the mold in the cheese make penicillin?

Also many persons who think they are penicillin allergic are not. ...Read more

Allergy can do this, but many things are possible. Doubt you have a "leaky gut". Good luck. ...Read more
