Milk by Another Name

A friend of my daughters recently was diagnosed with milk allergies,among others. Talking with her about what to do to get started reminded me when reading food labels that milk is not always listed as just milk. When looking at ingredients in the products you buy keep an eye out for these:

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

This is not meant to be a comprehensive list but should get you started!
