So after two months of our avoidance diet I just read that I was supposed to be watching out for caramel color as it can contain milk products...I know for sure I've given some to Kate because it was in the vanilla extract...and I've had some in ginger ale, etc.

Does ALL caramel color have milk? Or is it one of those call the mfg kind of additives? Maybe most are artificial???

Thx for any info!
Kendra

Here in Australia manufacturers must disclose the source of their caramel colour, most I've found are derived from wheat, rather than milk.
