I recently found an English muffin that is safe for our family - maybe it might be safe for yours too. I found Dempsters English muffins at Walmart (I heard about these from a mother with a sesame-allergic child. ) I forgot to post about this at the time, so I no longer have the packaging, but I think Dempsters English muffin I found was called "Smart Choice". I did look on the Dempsters website, and found these English muffins:

BodyWise - English Muffins

Ingredients

WHOLE GRAIN WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR INCLUDING THE GERM, WATER, YEAST*, VINEGAR, WHEATLETS, WHEAT GLUTEN, VEGETABLE OIL (CANOLA OR SOYBEAN), GLUCOSE-FRUCTOSE/SUGAR, SALT, CALCIUM PROPIONATE, FUMARIC ACID, POTASSIUM SORBATE. *ORDER MAY CHANGE.

MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF SOYBEAN. [H820]

We used these as hamburger buns recently. I toasted them first, and they were a pretty good substitute for a real hamburger bun.

Thank you. :D

I know there was previously a discussion about english muffins, but i don't remember whether they were safe or not -- and it was so long ago the information may have changed.

But I do trust Dempster labelling for peanuts and sesame -- I eat some of their breads.

You're welcome. :D It's always cause for a celebration when we find another safe bread - gives our breadmaker a rest! :wink:

Thank you that is very exciting, my little guy has never had an english muffin and we haven't had any in so long due to his allergies and haven't figured out how to make them! Thanks! :)

The added bonus with English muffins is that they are amazingly high in protein! 4-5 a piece which is awesome, esp for those of us avoiding nuts and seeds. Whoo hoo!
