Thaks Matilda,

I know it's really tough for people with multiple food issues. We're running into the same situtaion with cheese. The rice cheese that I've looked at also have milk protein in it. My daughter loves organic, unsalted butter. She seems to crave it and could eat it all by itself :o The olive oil idea is great! I had some coconut oil and I didn't know if it would work for baking? :unsure:

Thanks again :)

Fleischmann's produces two light margarines that can be used in baking. These are suggested because they are few of the only non-dairy margarines on the market.

Unsalted Fleischmann's - Comes in sticks. Free of all dairy and gluteningredients, but does include Soy.*** so not what you want, however-

Light Fleischmann's - Comes in tubs. Dairy-free, Gluten-Free and Soy-free, it is derived from Corn and Canola Oils.

How to Substitute

1. Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup more Fleischmann's than butter, shortening, or margarine in a recipe.

Example: 1/2 cup Butter, Margarine, or Shortening = 3/4 cup Fleischmann's.

It is important to melt the Fleischmann's in the microwave for 30 seconds to properly measure it.

2. Because Fleischmann's contains more water content than butter you will probably need to REDUCE any liquid ingredients such as water or milk that the recipe requires. Do this by first adding the Fleischmann's and then slowly mixing your batter. Add the other liquids slowly to the recipe, keeping in mind you will probably reduce it by approximately 1/4 cup.

3. Follow the recipes instructions on baking temperature and time.

Coconut Butter

A naturally saturated, unhydrogenated, unrefined vegetable fat. It is stable which makes it ideal for baking and sautéing. Coconut butter is the same as coconut oil. Use as a substitute for shortening and butter in recipes such as pancakes, cakes and cookies. Unlike other substitutes it may lend a slight ‘coconut’ flavor to finished products.

Example: 3/4 cup coconut butter = 1 cup butter

Palm Oil

The only type of oil that is solid naturally at room temperature. This means it does not require processing and hydrogenation like shortening. It has a mild to no flavor and is perfect for baking. Use it interchangeably with traditional shortening. It is generally found in natural foods stores or by special order.

Example: 1 cup Palm oil = 1 cup shortening.

I heard that there is a passover butter (Mother's I think) that is supposed to be dairy and soy free but I didn't find it in my town.

Everything I have found has soy...I use canola or olive oil for baking and I have not had any problems. However, if a receipe calls for solid instead of melted then you need to use a solid oil to replace it with.

Also, I have heard and from personal experience, if you have a problem with casein, stay away from goats milk products.

Thanks for the recommendations. Now I've got options!!!! I've read in the information form YORK about the goat's milk. I was hoping that might be an option but we've decided to steer clear!

If dairy isn't a problem is it possible to substitute butter for the gluten-free margarine in Gluten free recipes? Thanks

Smart Squeeze by Smart Balance is free of gluten, dairy and soy. It's more of a liquid. Can't be used in cooking or baking but can be put on things like bread and potatoes. For baking I use coconut oil or olive oil.

It's Passover season so i'd try and find some Mothers Margarine. You can find them at local Kosher stores or even the Kosher aisle of your grocery store. You might be able to order them online too.

I frequently use sweet oils as a butter substitute. Grapeseed, almond, hazlenut are all good. Don't use grapeseed outside of a recipe. It gums up a pan like nothing else. It is fine if it is mixed into a batter though. All are also good for drizzling on bread. I use olive oil for my savory dishes and usually grapeseed for my sweet. I don't really use "butter" in pats anymore though. good luck.

Clarified butter works for me. It removes the milk proteins and lactose. I find it cheaper to make myself with salted butter (salted butter has less milk proteins). I store it in a glass jar and it doesn't need to be refrigerated. If you are super sensitive you may want to buy it commercially because you have to remove all the white protein that settles to the top to be completely free of diary. I haven't been able to find the Light Fleischmann's in my grocery stores but that sounds good too if you can find it. Again, it works for ME and doesn't give me any gas and bloated symptoms that unclarified butter will give me but everyone is different with their sensitivities. Personally, I don't like the fake butter taste and can't handle the coconut oil although it is tastey.

    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
