Bloating after eating yogurt

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 22, 2012 at 4:08 PM

I've been making Greek yogurt at home for the past couple of months, it's thick, creamy and delicious, the down side is, it makes me bloated. I want to know if this symptoms will go away with time, if I continue eating it.

Thanks,

Love to all

Why so absolute? Warm weather may mean optimal temperatures for incubation. So yes, it is a reason to not ferment it for 24 hours, unless you want a product so sour it's unpalatable.

You can try it, but I don't know that the specific cultures in yogurt will digest all the lactose. You can buy kefir grains online & make your own.

Living in warm weather is no reason not to ferment it for 24 hours. I ferment mine wrapped in a heating pad for at least 24 hours.

You should be fermenting for 24 hours at least.

I eat different types of cheese, heavy cream and butter, with no ill effect.

short answer, no the symptoms oughtn't just "go away". how long are you fermenting it? you might try supplementing with a lactase enzyme when you eat it and see if that solves the problem. if lactose intolerance isn't the problem, you probably shouldn't be eating it since you don't see to tolerate it. you might try using goat milk and seeing if that helps as well.

You are likely lactose intolerant. Try kefir instead. Properly fermented kefir will contain almost no lactose.

I can drink kefir, but yogurt gives me gas, etc.

The issue is either the dairy (lactose, casein) or the probiotics. You'll need to figure out which one. Do you bloat from other, non-fermented sources of dairy?
