I use this product and enjoy it as well, but I think it is important to note 
that while no "animal fats" are used in the making of the it, it does contain 
casein, a milk protein.  So while it is lactose free, it is not dairy free.  
And, more to the point of this list, it DOES contain 2 grams of fat per slice 
(regardless of what type of fat it is) so it is not fat free.
