Does this exist?
I was thinking about trying to make some casseroles for Toby using rice milk, but so many of them call for butter, and he can tolerate a little butter, but I hate pushing it. Is there a sub for butter?(dairy/soy/egg/nut free)

I don't know if your allergist has mentioned this to you but most kids with soy allergies can still tolerate soybean oil and soy licithin well...have you asked them about that? Danny is allergic to soy but can tolerate soybean oil and soy licithin. That widens your choices a TON!

yea, its supposed to be because the proteins are so broken down in the oil; but that's probably Ts worst. Anything with a little soy, even like green peas/baked beans breaks him out.

We buy this butter called Earth Balance. They make a soy based one, but they just came out recently with a soy free one. Tommy was SO thrilled when we found it, cuz he missed butter, since he can't have soy or dairy either. Try this Earth Balance Soy Free one, cuz honestly it is yummy. It bakes well too. I've used it in a few different things....even breads and rice milk mac and cheese, and it works just like normal margarine would IMO.

I get it at Whole Foods and a gluten-free store. Here is a link to it: Earth Balance Natural Spreads It says that you can buy their products at some Trader Joes too, but I dunno if they all have the soy-free one. I know that our local normal grocery store carries the one that is soy based, but not the soy free.

Oh and we LOVE the peanut butter by this company too. It is gluten, soy, and dairy free, and Tommy adores it since he can actually have it without any worries.
