Hurray ~ Dairyfree Pepperoni!

I just had to post this. We haven't had pepperoni pizza in a long time. Now we've found Bridgport pepperoni from BJs. Almost all sausages and pepperoni contain lactic acid starter which is pure milk. Not any more!

We belong to a group called Food Allergy and Anaphylatic Network (FAAN), a group that has spent millions of dollars over the past few years, writing to companies asking them to take common allergens out of their food products. Most of the seven common food allergens can be taken out without affecting the taste or quality of foods. Thanks to this effort, our family is able to eat many foods now. A few years ago we couldn't find any breads or rolls that were dairyfree. Now most of them are pareve which is the kosher word meaning completely dairyfree. (Jews can't eat milk with meat and therefore identify any dairy products with kosher symbols. This has benefitted our family immensely.)

All that to say this: We are having pepperoni pizza for dinner!!

Many blessings ~ Kathie
