The easiest way is to look at the allergen statement, it will list dairy.

not all products have a line that says "Contains: Allergen, Allergen, Allergen".

However, any milk products won't be hidden.

if its labeled parve (or P), its non-dairy.

anything with casein/caseinate, any milk, any listing of dairy, whey/whey protein, lactose, butter, cream...

by the way-some margarines are casein free.
