Mascarpone (cream) overdose

Answered on March 19, 2015

Mascarpone (English: /??m??sk??r??po??ni??/ or /??m??rsk??po??n/, Italian: [maskar??pone]), sometimes mispronounced as if it were spelled "marscapone"[1], is an Italian triple-cream cheese made from cr??me fra??che, denatured with tartaric acid.

Ingredients: Cream, citric acid

Per serving 1 tbsp(28g)

Calories 120 Carbohydrates 0g Fat 13g (saturated 6.5) Saturated Fat 7 Cholesterol 35mg Sodium 15 mg Protein 2g

It's fucking awesome :D "Like sour cream mixed with heavy cream".

Saw it. Bought it. Drooled.

I attacked it like a madman but my rational brain kicked in after three spoons or so (I probably ate 100g) and I stopped.

Within 10 minutes my hands started shaking and my stomach was feeling very unpleasent.

Did I had an fat overdose or ? I'm just slowly getting to eat more fats so it could be intolerance to such big (30g of fat in one sitting) amount ?

p.s. Buy it. Now :D

EDIT: Ate another four spoons of it and I was OK. More testing is needed.

EDIT 2: 50g and no problems. Seems that taking it easy fixes the issue.

Only problem you'll run into with consuming a lot of fat quickly is steatorrhea: essentially diarrhea but caused from a fat or protein overload. I've had it in the past. Our bodies can only handle so much, after that point you gotta eat carbohydrate to get your calories up in the 3000 range.

Pleasure. I've switched to whole tubs of ricotta instead for a change. Had one for lunch today. I recommend it!

By the way, the 28g serving size would have to be 2 tbsp, not one. One tbsp. of pure fat is 12-14g; one tbsp. of water is about 14g. 2 tbsp = 1 oz. 4 tbsp = 1/4 cup. 16 tbsp = 1 cup ( = 8 oz).

Butter is fine, but I am probably lactose intolerant. I think my problem with mascarapone and sour cream is I tend to overdose on them because they are tasty!

"strange reason". Yes, my thoughts exactly :D Are you in any way dairy intolerant or have problems with other diary products ?

I don't think it has anything to do with dairy since the lactose (carbs) amount is 0g and casein (protein) is only 2g.

Mascarapone gives me an upset stomach for some strange reason. I'll stick with butter.

Last week I lost control and ate a half pound of sheep's milk romano cheese, which amounted to about 72 grams of fat. I felt like a champion afterwards.

This is going around lately, isn't it, the interest in various forms of milk-fat. I "blame" Kurt Harris. I mean, ever since I first read http://www.paleonu.com/ I have been binging on heavy cream (grass fed only, please) myself. It's just so good. 1 tbsp = 5-6g of beautiful fat, and little or no appreciable protein or carbs.

What we have here in this thread are several anecdotes that, it seems to me, would suggest a hypothesis of some kind of hormonal reaction to the rapid ingestion of large amounts of fat.

It's not a great article, but this may help:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatty_acid_metabolism

The only thing I can see that happens shortly after ingestion of fat is that the pancreas kicks into high gear, churning out lipase and colipase, and the gallbladder kicks out bile salts to emulsify the fat so that the pancreatic enzymes can break it down.

Maybe you are experiencing some kind of pancreatic or gall-bladder "rush"? I can't find any evidence of reports about that.

Googling "fat rush" just gives you a bunch of websites about Rush Limbaugh.

Glad this is not just me. I have often bought a tub of this and squared away the entire thing. Then one day I realised how much fat was in them. But does it matter? Any good articles out there on 'fat overdose' from a paleo perspective? Damn I want some mascarpone right now

??Two separate days of eating Mascarpone (250g, about 9oz) at evening and both times with very soft stool in the morning. Years ago I had a similar problem *possibly* with Greek Yoghurt, however recently that has not been a problem. Other high-fat foods (including Ricotta Cheese) are not a problem.??

Citric acid has an MSG association and can be experienced as negatively.

I've got a skin allergic reaction to Mascarpone. Never had the same for heavy cream or butter which I can eat a lot.

Sounds like "dumping". Fat overdose, basically.

This happened to me with too much cream in a protein shake before, my entire face became red and flushed, I started to shake and then I had to run to the bathroom really quickly. :)

It's not just dairy, happens with pork belly if I eat it too quickly, though I think dairy is the most common type of fat that you'd consume a lot of in one go.
