Dairy & egg free supermarket products - the big list!(19 Posts)
facebook group, it's called CMPAsupport, but we have members with all sorts of food allergy combinations
JoleneB My DD is allergic to both the milk & soya protein. Been shopping to Sainsbury's this morning and it is so hard to buy stuff without either or both of the proteins in.
I'm struggling to figure out what to give her so it's still normal food iykwim. Also do you get any foods on prescription?
Sheilsie, I was furious the packaging clearly says may contain traces of (the pack I bought actually said produced on a line that handles milk chocolate) milk, which is misleading, the fact that you have done what I did makes me feel much better! Nestle sent me a letter after I complained to them, the recipe changed in 2007, they use butterfat to stop the chocolate getting that white stuff on it! I'm glad your DD didn't react, I wouldn't worry too much, butterfat is highly processed, a bit like soya oil, so the milk protein is broken down, your DDs body probably doesn't see the protein that is left as a threat, my DD is very sensitive to both milk and soya protein although she is generally ok with trace amounts she's always reacted to soya Letchin and oil, which aren't classed as allergenic for the majority, she even reacted to the calcium in calcium syrup because its from milk sources (why they do that is beyond me )
our group most definitely still exists, and anyone is welcome to join, I can't post a link as I'm on my phone, but if you go to the home page on our website and click on the picture of helping hands it should take you too it, you will need to request to join and either myself or one of the admins will accept you, and anyone else who wants to join
JoleneB, sorry, you're quite right about the After Eights. I hadn't realised (and don't know whether to be pleased that my DD didn't react or worried that I've not helped things by exposing her to dairy - or perhaps the recipe has changed because it was a year or two ago she last tried one). The allergen info (as per the Tesco website) says "may contains traces of milk protein" whereas butterfat is the 5th ingredient listed. Good luck with your complain to trading standards.
I like your CMPA website. Do you still have your facebook group (or did that get replaced altogether by the website) and, if so, it is possible to join?
can I also add that nestle AFTER EIGHTS are definitely NOT DAIRY FREE!!! They contain butterfat, the label is misleading my daughter had a reaction to them just over a month ago, I'm in the process of making a complaint about it to trading standards
I tried to do something like your doing here on a facebook group, but it ended up with things just getting lost down the page so we wrote a web site there's still more to put on but you guys might find it helpful.
there's also links to allergy UK's fact sheets on the management page as well as our own pdf's of milk and soya ingredients that need to be excluded for cows milk allergy
My DD2 who turns 1 on 22nd Dec had confirmed yesterday by Dietician that she has a Severe Cows Milk Allergy. It had been suspected about 4 weeks ago, so stripped of all milk products and was given a milk cracker yesterday which confirmed the allergy. Also possibility of Egg, Gluten & Wheat too.
So this thread is brilliant thank you.
Hi abigboydidit, sorry I wasn't trying to hijack your original thread or confuse people. I just took most of the items from your thread (which was 8 pages long and growing) and listed them altogether. Not sure what people want to do now re where to add new items. In my view it would be good if there was a central place the food products could all be listed together (and updated as people come up with new ones) but I'm not clever enough to know how!
Sorry - am confused! Are we scrubbing the old list now as I've still been adding to it
Ah sorry I have been posting on the old thread today! Great list though, thanks very much. And after eights? Really? This is very very exciting! My DD has a nut allergy though and we have only ever given her kinnerton chocolate so Im not sure id have the guts to let her try and after eight, but good to know we can safely have them on the christmas dinner table!
Wow, good list Shielsie!!
Can I just add
Tesco basic mince pies
Green and black's hot chocolate powder
Bendicks mint crisps
Thanks for those Portlypenguin. Not having soya must be such a pain (we were soya-free 'just in case' until DD was about one, but she's fine with it fortunately). Here is another I've thought of today:
- Sainsburys reduced fat guacamole dip
I like to stir it through cooked pasta!
I had some I was going to put on the other list - we are dairy and soya free here. Still hoping DS will grow out of it soon as it is tough to keep finding different things to give him!
- Tesco goodness pasta bolognaise (chilled ready meal)
- Tesco crumpets
- Potato scones
- Tesco english toasting muffins (wholemeal - white ones contain soya but not milk)
- Sainsburys own bakery gingerbread men
- For those who can have egg but not dairy: Helman's mayo (not tesco or sainsburys own)
You're welcome abigboydidit and Maz007! Although I have to admit that I didn't realise that the list was so big when I started ha ha (I realised part way through that I was only looking at page 1 of 8). We had Mr Kipling apple & blackcurrrant pies for pudding tonight for the first time ever. Yum! Who would have thought they would be dairy and egg free!
Sheilsie thanks you are a legend. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who knew how many messages there were in the original thread and rubbed their hands when the number went up
Why thank you! This is excellent
Oops! Ignore my previous message. I meant to start it as a new thread!
My 4 year old DD's eczema is nowhere near as bad as it was when she was a baby, but her hands and wrists are really bad at the moment (no doubt partly down to the change in climate/central heating). I'm looking for advice on what to wash her hands with after she goes to the toilet and before meals. At the moment we're using standard Carex liquid hand soap but I'm sure that is probably adding to the problem. All suggestions much appreciated. Thanks
abigboydidit, thanks so much for starting your Surprise dairy & egg free finds
thread back in August (still being posted to a few days ago). Ive got loads of good ideas from it. Who would have thought you could find a garlic bread that was dairy-free!
For ease of reference, Ive put them altogether in a big list below but missed out those with egg in them, those that you would find in the free from aisle or similar and also those where I couldnt verify the allergen information online (Ive checked them all for sesame & nuts, as my DD is allergic to them as well as dairy & eggs) plus crisps (since the list could be endless). This meant missing off the Coop sausage roll bites and Coop jam/custard donuts (since I couldnt find the allergen info online) although I am very excited by the thought of them!
