One of the most frustrating thing about living with a disorder like ours is finding suppliers, retailers and equipment manufacturers to help, isn't it?

This part of the site is here to help you track down all those bits to make your life easier. Yoghurt makers, almond flour, extra matured cheeses, anything to make an SCD'ers life that little bit easier. If you find something we might find useful, please let us know by mailing us from here!

Dry Curd Cottage Cheese :
Please note that we are not able to purchase this in the UK. Our equivalent is to make the SCD yoghurt and then drain it for approx 6-8 hours and you will be left with a kind of cheese.

Probiotics :
Some SCDers find probiotics beneficial but nutritionists' opinions (including Elaine Gottschall) vary as to the strains of bacteria desirable or whether small amounts of strictly SCD-illegal added ingredients are permissable. There is no known SCD-legal probiotic manufactured in the UK (July 09). SCD illegals include starches and sugars such as FOS, maltodextrin, inulin, potato starch, brown rice flour.

However, the following have been reported by UK SCDers (adults and children) as having good results:

Lactobacillus Sporogenes from Thorne Research (available from the Vitamin Service tel 0800 652 7855). Refrigeration not necessary.

The 5-strain CP1 'adult' formula* from Custom Probiotics www.customprobiotics.com, also their acidophilus.

Udo's Choice Super 8 probiotics - www.udoerasmus.com (Custom Probiotics and Udo's Choice available in the UK from The Vitamin Service tel 0800 652 7855).

Nature's Biotics* -Refrigeration not necessary. Available in the UK from Kiki Ltd tel 08450601060 www.kiki-health.co.uk.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus (Single Strain) from Kirkman Laboratories available from www.nutricentre.com

The heating pad I have discovered for yogurt making is the type used for home brewing. I did this because the commercial yogurt maker and slow-cookers that I tried made the yogurt too hot.
I guess this pad is the sort of thing that Elaine describes in BTVC. It is flat, made of plastic and fairly lightweight so is handy to store. I contacted the company that makes the pad as I wasn't sure whether it would be hot enough since the temperature for brewing wine/beer is quite a bit lower than that required for the BTVC yogurt. Peter Cottrell, the manager, was most helpful and suggested fitting an adjustable thermostat. This means I can vary the temperature according to the container I'm using and the quantity of the yogurt. I still use a thermometer to actually read the temperature of the yogurt but the heating pad is amazingly reliable. Once I have stablilized the temperature I can leave it for 24 hours.

Eastbrook Farm Organic Meat operate a nationwide home delivery service. Amongst their many delicious products, including plain chicken mince, they do chickenburgers, lambburgers and beefburgers with NOTHING added. They will also make you a batch of meat-only sausages on request - they cook well and taste lovely. Contact Debbie at Eastbrook Farm for more information. Why not buy in bulk to minimise the delivery charge and stock up your freezer?

Could we suggest that folk also ask for other products, like ham, bacon, gammon that aren't cured using sugar and have nothing else 'illegal' added? I know it is possible to get cured pork products that don't have sugar but haven't seeen anything organic yet. If there's enough demand, Eastbrook Farm might consider doing it.
