Can someone give me a brand of margarine that is gfdf. I have used Smart Balance Light, however sometimes I wonder if it doesn't bother my stomach a little......or perhaps it is my imagination. I was looking to try a different kind

Thanks.

We ran into this dilema, too! I found a spread that works for my daughter and our nutritionaist agreed that it worked well. It is tricky - it is the Smart Balance regular with flax oil - it only comes in small tubs. It is different than those in the larger tubs. We use this one because my daughter also can't have too much soy (only oil).

When we had my son on a Gluten-free Casein-free diet, we used the following margarines:

Earth Balance - by far our favorite. Works great for baking and is great as a spread too.

Soy Garden

Smart Balance with Flax

Smart Balance Organic Buttery Spread

Nucoa - great for baking and spreading, but it does have trans-fats, so we didn't use it often. This one was the cheapest and easiest for me to find.

Fleischmann's Unsalted - for some reason, the unsalted one is the only one that is DF in the Fleischmann's line.

Hope this helps.

I also use this one, I really like it :)
