What are your top five most tolerable forms of cow dairy?

What are your top five most tolerable forms of dairy? I know this is an individual subject and a decent idea of what I tolerate, but am still interested in what others are tolerating. For the sake of simplicity let's exclude A1 vs A2 cow derived dairy (discussion for other ultra-Paleo nerd posts) and goat dairy. However, let's specify raw or pasteurized, organic and grass-fed.

Here is my rough list of my tolerance:

  1. grass-fed ghee
  2. grass-fed, unsweetened whole yogurt (I believe it was made from raw dairy-- Whole Foods)
  3. grass-fed butter
  4. organic, pasture-raised heavy whipping cream* (I saw grass-fed, raw, heavy whipping cream for an arm and a leg at my health food store, for about twice the price as the other most expensive creams.-- Clarks)
  5. grass-fed hard cheeses, such as cheddar

I had a glass pasteurized milk and I thought I was going to die!

I also have no problems with dairy. I usually eat high-fat yogurt, heavy cream (sometimes half-and-half), and lots of cheeses (I've been going for the expensive artisan cheeses though, so I don't eat so much, and often they're made with sheep or goat milk). Kefir can be good too, but I find I prefer yogurt most of the time.

Ditto -- no problems with dairy, although I try to stick to pastured & organic.

Yogurt. Fage 0% gives me no problems and is a great way to sneak more protein in my diet.

I use grass-fed products so I don't really know if I can tolerate non-grass-fed. That being the case, while I'm lactose and whey intolerant, I have no problems with ghee, butter, whipping cream, and hard cheeses. I don't use them much though. Raw milk isn't available here in Iowa but I have found raw milk cheeses at Trader Joe's and they are ok too. I only eat goat or sheep milk yogurt.

I'm lactose intolerant but I tolerate measured amounts of ghee, butter & greek yogurt without much problem. If I have not had any other dairy during the day, I can eat small amounts of hard cheese or drink about 4 oz of kefir. I learned to limit dairy years ago, but I do eat a small serving of greek yogurt most days.

Soft cheese + greasy meat is a total killer to my digestive system, not to mention milk or especially a milkshake. :P

I can tolerate all of it, some of it too well! I have never met a cheese I didn't like. These days I keep raw cheeses, pastured half-and-half, Kerrygold butter (both salted and unsalted), full-fat Greek yogurt, kefir, and raw whole milk in the fridge. The half-and-half and butter are used in cooking, hubby eats the yogurt every morning (he won't eat eggs), 8-year-old son drinks the kefir and milk, and we all nosh on the cheese.

I love the milk and kefir, but I would rather spend my carb counts elsewhere as I keep it below 50.

I cannot tolerate any at all, raw or pasteurized, not even ghee. :(

I can tolerate raw milk (right from the cow).

I cannot tolerate anything pasteurized.

I tolerate all the ones you mentioned above(except the yogurt which I haven't tried). Kefirs haven't given me any problem either. Raw milk is also tolerated well. I also used some non grass-fed cheddar the other day and didn't notice any ill effects. I was at first a little concerned since I typically don't consume any dairy. I haven't tried Greek Yogurt in a long time, but I imagine I'll tolerate it with no issue.

I can tolerate ghee and heavy cream, and that's it.
