Note 2: None of these margarines contain any lactose.

For the benefit of those who need to avoid casein or who are vegan, I have added the following information.

  • "P" Indicates margarines that are marked "parve" or "pareve", a desigation by a kosher-certifying body that no milk products of any kind are present.

  • "D" Indicates margarines that contain no dairy products but are made on equipment that may at other times be used for products containing dairy.

  • "N" Indicates margarines that do not show this information on their packages.

  • Margarines that are lactose-free but contain casein have a specific note saying so.
