Does anyone know if there is casein in lactaid milk? My PDD-NOS daughter keeps getting yeast infections and I am discovering in my readings that milk products contribute to recurring yeast infections. Any advice? My girls LOVE milk products and trying to convert to the GFCF diet has been very trying. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

They sell nasty cheese that's made of soy. We've tried half a dozen brands, and all anyone said was "yuk".

Daiya cheese isn't too bad when melted. Most soy and rice cheeses actually have casein in them so they are off-limits for us.
