For a while now I’ve thought that I was allergic to whey. However, I can drink milk and it doesn’t bother me too much. I can also eat certain ice creams, but there are some that bother me. I started to pay closer attention to the food labels and I notice that the Nestles ice creams bother me. But guess what? They’re not actually called ice cream! They’re called “frozen dessert”, because I don’t think Nestles stuff is actual ice cream. When I look at the first ingredient it says “Modified Milk Ingredients”. When I look at the other ice cream that doesn’t really bother me the first ingredient is “Cream”.
When I had an allergic reaction it was to whey, which like modified milk ingredients, is the by-product of processed milk. I’m starting to think that when milk gets processed into its constituent parts that my body can’t ingest it properly, but when I consume it in its whole form I seem to have far less of a reaction, if any. Does this make sense? Anyone else had this experience?
