There are no completely soy and dairy free margarines available in the US most of the year. *There* is one available around Passover, but that's already over for the year. I don't know what the possible peanut contamination issues are with it, either.
You'll probably have to find something else to use for stir-frying. I use Olive oil, safflower oil, and sesame oil. For shortening, I use Spectrum's palm shortening.
I'm not milk-allergic, so I use butter. I *am* severely soy-allergic, though. Since I'm vegetarian, I won't go near lard, tallow, etc. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

hi my daughter was diagnosed with a severe milk allergy at 4 months -- i am the one who can't have the milk products since I am nursing. We also have a PA toddler so we are pretty picky. I use Fleischmans light margarine -- from reading the label I see no soy either -- here is the phone number -- 1 800 988 7808. hope this helps.

Here's a delicious potato milk,

Fleishman's unsalted margarine is one that may work. ygg is right, there is soy lechithin in it. However, many allergic to soy do not react to the lechithin. My daughter is anaphylactic to milk, egg, peanut, shellfish and has outgrown soy, rice and peas!
Best of luck, it's frustrating!

I feel so at home here,you people are great. I finally got a hold of Tree of Life people and they assured me that there are no contamination issues with their shelf stable rice milk (Harmony Farms). They also make a soy variety if that is any help to anyone. I will check out Fleischmann's soon, just need something to bake with. I've e-mailed Spectrum to see if their palm oil shortening runs any risk of contamination since I found out that their Canola oil could be contaminated.I will let you know when I hear back from Spectrum on their shortening.

Whole Food's brand of shelf stable rice milk may be safe. You may want to check with them. I think it is brand 351 or something??
