Milk & Egg in all their guises

When you first start dealing with food allergies, buying food can be a bit of a trial. As time goes on, you grow used to reading labels carefully (even those you have read before) and the brands and products that are safe become familiar, as does the terminology used on the ingredients lists. 

The following are "code words" in ingredient listings that mean milk or dairy products are included:

  • Butter
  • Butter Oil
  • Calcium Caseinate
  • Casein
  • Caseinate 
  • Cheese
  • Cheese powder 
  • Cream
  • Curds
  • Lactalbumin
  • Lactose
  • Light cream
  • Milk
  • Milk by-products
  • Milk solids
  • Non-fat milk solids
  • Skim Milk Powder
  • Sour Cream 
  • Whey
  • Whey solids
  • Whey powder
  • Yogurt

The next list are the "code words" that translate to egg:

  • Albumen 
  • Albumin
  • Conalbumin
  • Egg
  • Egg oil
  • Egg powder
  • Egg white
  • Egg yolk
  • Ovalbumin
  • Yolk

  If you know of others let me know and I will add it to the lists.
