I didn't know they were considered safe. I always buy the store brand english muffins because they're dairy-free... even though Thomas's are so much better. *snif*

I know some people aren't as sensative to dairy so they don't worry about small amounts like those in the muffins. But especially when you're not stable I'd stick to the other brands.

Nope, no idea. I don't eat them. I eat Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat English Muffins. (I'm lucky; whole wheat doesn't bother me.) They contain no milk products -- and no trans fat! And they're yummy! Yaay!

You would be surprised how many bread items have dairy in them. I use an organic english muffin. Or look at your store's brand they may be dairy free. I've spent so much time reading food labels but once I find products that have little or no additives, dairy, the guar gum etc,casein, whey, and carregean I stick with it. I just takes time. Beware of lunchmeant even turkey and chicken has dairy! The deli person was just as surprised as I was! Dairy comes in many names and forms so be careful. You can ask an allergist or go to an allergy org. website. One more item Haagen Das sorbet has trace amounts of milk protein it says right on the label!

Yeah, you notice that many store brand items(of anything) are dairy free? Good tip to remember

Boars Head Lunch Meat is Dairy Free new
      #70081 - 05/13/04 09:23 AM

I've been buying Boars Head lunch meat (Turkey & Chicken) for years now for my kids because it is the only kind that I know is dairy free. Long before I ever had IBS, I've been watching food labels for both my boys who have had severe milk allergies (egg too). So if you're craving lunch meat...Boars Head is the way to go. You think I would have realized that Thomas' English Muffins had milk in them since I've never given them to my milk allergic children (real good brain activity....oh well ).
