Poll Answer: Which of the following foods is dairy-free?

The answer is: Noah's Chocolate Chip Bagels! 

All of the other choices--Wonder bread, Cool Whip, and McDonald's french fries all contain dairy.  Which just goes to show how important it is to read ingredient labels (more than once!), identify "hidden" ingredients like "whey," and research potential allergens when eating out.  More to come next week!

  1. When I first became aware of Ryken's dairy allergy and started reading labels, I was shocked at how common it is for companies to add whey to their products. And I was pleasantly surprised that many semisweet chocolate chips are free of dairy. Huge sigh of relief from this chocoholic!
