Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

Thanks, everyone.

I thought that Coop didn't have anything because I looked in one small-ish Coop last weekend and didn't see a thing. I asked the sales assistant guy if they had any soy yoghurt and in typical Swiss style just said 'No'. He didn't suggest any alternatives, ask me what I wanted it for, etc., just 'No' and walked off.

Everyone keeps telling me to make my own hommus but I don't have a blender or food processor!!!!

Well, I suggest you buy one then I got mine for around 30 chuffs and it's still going strong after eight years. Blenders
By the way, generalizing the Swiss is uncalled for. Some Swiss even give free advice on where to find blenders, you know

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

I don't want to buy one because I'm not staying long enough to justify it. And to be honest, I just have no desire to make my own hommus.

Went to a different Coop yesterday and still no luck. No soya yoghurt. They only had one "FreeFrom" plain yoghurt and nothing else. Walked up and down in front of the fridge five times.

Hummus isn't the only thing one can make with a blender but if you don't want to get a blender, that's your choice, of course.

A few deliveries would make up for the price of a blender

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

It would help if you told us which area/canton you lived in... so we could give you more detailed info on specialist shops near you that carry lactose-free products - not only soy based, but also rice or nut based.

All cheese is derived from animals and therefore contains lactose. Matured cheese, while containing less lactose than softer cheeses, can still contain traces of lactose, which can produce very bad reactions in highly lactose intolerant people.

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

Just check the sugar content on harder cheeses, if it is zero then it wont have lactose in there. Not every cheese pack has the info for intolerant people on there! Surprisingly, lots of packs in aldi do, and lidl now stocks lactosefree products such as milk, butter, cottage cheese, yoghurts, mozzarella. You probably have a bigger chance there since every lidl is about the same size whereas for coop or migros you would have to find a large one to have the choice of speciality foods. Recently I saw a new houmous tub in migros but the price does not justify the content! If you use canned chickpeas you might be able to mash everything without a blender?? Or just ask your neighbour if you can lend their blender for 5 min?? Make a massive portion then freeze the rest!

I'd like to buy a decent blender such as a vitamix or a like, without breaking a bank, but seems not very likely in Switzerland!

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

I'll add my query to this old post.

I just recently became lactose intolerant and i was wondering if somebody knew a chocolate powder to be added to milk without containing lactose but also without a huge amount of sugar. Every morning I liked to drink my milk with Jemalt (which is kind of ovomaltine) and 100 gr of that contains 40 gr sugar. Today i checked the various nesquik, suchard, caotina and they all have 80 gr sugar I know I will probably use only 20 gr of product but still the double amount of sugar bothers me.
Does somebody perhaps has in mind a product that meet these requirements? I don't want something with vanilla or strawberry flavour. What could do is something like horlicks (which however has lactose) or chocolate flavour. I would also like to avoid those lactose free milk already chocolate flavoured.

If you're lactose intolerant, why are you drinking milk in the first place?

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

Add plain cocoa to your “milky” liquid of choice (almond, oat, rice or soy if you don’t have thyroid issues) whisp as you heat it, sweeten a tad if desired.

Oh I feel so silly that I didn't think about that earlier! Something tells me it won't taste as good as the supermarket, but hey it's more healthy, so why not? I'll give a try tomorrow morning.

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

An update for those who might be searching chocolate powder options for lactose intolerants.

I tried the 1 tsp cocoa powder with 1 tsb raw sugar and it was not that bad.

Then I also tried 1 Tbsp of Schokoladenpulver which contains already sugar and the taste was not bad, but it didn't dissolve properly even if the milk was warm.

Then, by chance I read the label of the other variant of Jemalt - the yellow pack enriched with magnesium and calcium - and that one does not contain dairy products so luckily that seems to be suitable for lactose intolerants.

Re: Soy yoghurt & other lactose-free products?

Müllers Reformhaus has a good range

Personally I find Soya yogurt ( natur ) disgusting. It has this "furry" taste to it.
