I sent my husband for allergy testing last Tuesday and he's been told to cut dairy completely out of his diet. The only problem is all the different words that are used to describe "dairy". I know whey and casein mean "milk". What else means "milk"? Thanks!

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has a great resource for allergens.

Here's an excerpt from their "Milk" info page.

Avoiding milk and milk derivatives
Make sure you read product labels carefully to avoid products that contain milk and milk derivatives. Avoid food and products that do not have an ingredient list and read labels every time you shop. Manufacturers may occasionally change their recipes or use different ingredients for varieties of the same brand. Refer to the following list before shopping:

Other names for milk
Ammonium/calcium/magnesium/potassium/sodium caseinate
Casein/caseinate/rennet casein
Curds
Delactosed/demineralized whey
Dry milk/milk/sour cream/sour milk solids
Hydrolyzed casein, hydrolyzed milk protein
Lactalbumin/lactalbumin phosphate
Lactate/lactose
Lactoferrin
Lactoglobulin
Milk derivative/fat/protein
Modified milk ingredients
Opta™, Simplesse® (fat replacers)
Whey, whey protein concentrate

Here's is also a link to their site - they have the top allergens listed and have informaiton pages on each. It's very helpful.

Hope it helps.

I've already familiarized myself with alternative words for egg, now I have to learn the alternative words for dairy.
Ugh! As if my shopping trip didn't already take waaay too long. :?
