Hi,

Does anyone know if the ingredients:
di-tri calcium phosphate is dairy? We have many cerals with this ingredent listed, however when I called Gerber's 800 # they told me it was not a dairy ingredent, I guess I'm a little thrown of by the term "calcium" hmmm......

I don't think this is a dairy ingredient.
Calcium is a mineral, it is in chalk. It is in lots of things as well as milk.
It's good to check, though.

No, it's not from a dairy source. We actually have a book of chemical additives to verify all this stuff - milk allergy is hard.
