Question Soy cheese

Where the heck can I get soy cheese without milk? I finally found some soy sliced cheese at the grocery store Saturday. I swear I looked over the ingredients and only saw things like soy and tofu. I made a grilled cheese sandwhich for Cora for lunch. She LOVED it. She was saying "hmmm" after every bite. Halfway through it my dh said that he looked at the ingredients and saw milk. UGH!!! I went and looked and sure enough it says caseinate (milk protein) in the ingredients. How the heck did I miss that!!!!!! I guess I was very excited about actually finding soy cheese. She didn't have any reactions whatsoever to it. No hives, didn't seem to have an upset tummy so we were lucky. I'm so dissapointed. She loved it and now she can't have it again.
 
There aren't any health food grocery stores around here so I don't know where else to find milk free soy cheese. Any thoughts? I would love to find it as sliced cheese and maybe a block or shredded so I could make things like pizza or lasagne for her.

Well Ryan is more soy intolerant than allergic and can handle the soy broken down enough to eat things cooked in vegetable oil but not enough the allergist thinks to eat soy products or drink soy milk yet. Can you call your allergist and ask about what he thinks about her milk allergy and if it is severe enough to worry about caseinate? I know some people can handle things like that even thou they are allergic to milk and it is ok ocassionally in small quantities. Check out this site for some good info I think for you Jen!

But if she is that allergic to it, it looks like the Vegan foods are best for her.

Awesome thanks so much Michelle. I will call her allergiest to see what they say. Her levels are pretty low (so I'm hopeful she'll outgrow her allergies
