I put together a list of 100 dairy sources and alternate names in The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut, 3.0 because dairy is tricky.

By the way, there are a ton of lists like this in A Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut to help with all of your gluten free, corn free, sugar free, and more-“free” lifestyles.

Dairy is difficult for almost every single Gutsy girl. The physiology breaks down as such:

Lactose intolerance is a primary lactase deficiency. Lactase is the enzyme that breaks down lactose, a disaccharide, into monosaccharides glucose and galactose in the brush border of enterocytes. Lactase deficiency is the most common enzyme deficiency in the world. (source)

Because many (most?) cannot tolerate dairy, I thought sharing this list would be beneficial.

The list answers the question:

What is dairy? What other names does dairy go under? How do I know if this is dairy free?

This is my contribution for all your dairy-free living.

Is Dairy “Good” or “Bad?”

Please remember that this is not me saying dairy is inherently “good” or “bad.” These lists exist to help those of you who already know (or suspect) dairy is causing you misery.

Also, it’s for those of you who are interested in truly understanding ingredients vs ingredient(s) to keep accurate track in the 90-day gut healing journal.


And by the way, a great digestive enzyme can help digest dairy.
