Susan, Presidents Choice also has a lactose free margarine. My son is allergic to milk and eggs as well and peanuts. It is cheaper than the Flieshmans. Atlantic Superstore carries it in Nova Scotia.

another margarine/butter option is the Earth Balance buttery spread. It is organic and dairy free. Made from expeller pressed oils. fantastic for a butter substitute in baking.

:?: I am new to this board.
Does anyone know of a dairy free and soy free butter substitue? My daughter is severly allergic to soy (mildly to dairy and egg) and all of the butter substtutes I can find have soy in them. TIA.

The one I have heard mention of is Spectrum Shortening, which is palm oil shortening. I realize it's not a margarine per se, but that's what another forum that I belong to often mentions.

See http://www.spectrumorganics.com/index.php?id=87 for a picture and details (at the bottom of the page).

I've also heard of people putting olive oil in the fridge and using that as a sort of butter/margarine.

In Quebec, there is also Nuvel margarine which is dairy-free. We use it because it comes in bigger tubs than the Fleischmann's Lactose-Free little tubs. (And my understanding is that the big tubs of Fleischmann's Lactose-Free margarine cannot be guaranteed to be dairy-free, as they are run on a dairy line.)

Go to http://www.nuvel.ca/ for details (in French).

On recent visit to the Fleischmann's website I could not find the lactose-free products. Here is a copy of my letter of inquiry:
Quote:
During a recent visit to your website I noticed you are promoting 4 versions of your margarine. None of these were the lactose-free versions. Are you deciding to drop these products or have you re-named them "light" and "salt-free" as these seem to be the two without milk ingredients listed?
Can you advise me as a family member has life threatening allergies to dairy and if you are changing your product line I may have to search out a new product.
I really hope this is not the case as milk-free margarines are very hard to find . We have been very happy with your lactose-free lines for years and have suggested them to many people.
Please advise me so that I may share your information with my support group and place the information on our national forum website.
