Have you given soft tofu to your dairy allergic child without problems?

I was looking at soft tofus for a dip and a mousse recipe and most of them contain 'delta-glucono-lactone' as an ingredient. Anything with 'lact' makes me worry... but even President's choice brand have it and they don't list dairy as an ingredient, and I know they are very good about their labelling of allergens.

This is what is stated on the sunrise soya website...


Although the word "lactone" sounds similar to "lactose" or "lactate", Glucono Delta Lactone or GDL is completely dairy-free. It is a derivative of corn starch which is used as a coagulant in the making of our tofu.

Me - Kim - No allergies
DH Ben - 31 - Allergic to nuts and peanuts, lots of environmental allergies.
DD Anne - 4 - Asthma. Allergic to dairy, eggs, mustard, kiwi, peanuts, wheat and barley... for now...
DS Francois - 1 - No allergies so far...

Yes, I have given her SunRise, Mori-Nu and President's Choice many times. She has had no trouble with any of them.

I particularly like the Mori-Nu because it comes in a tetra pack and I can keep it on hand in the cupboard for those tofu emergencies.

I noticed that Mori-Nu has a recipe site and I'm going to copy the Key Lime Pie recipe in the recipe forum. It sounds yummy!

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

I'm a vegan (also dairy-allergic) and never have come to a tofu that wasn't dairy-free.
