Dairy-Free Brands and Sites

One of the few advantages to having a dairy allergy is that there is a fairly sizable population of people that choose not to consume dairy whether it’s because they are intolerant, vegan, paleo, or purely from preference. That results in numerous options for dairy-free foods, recipes, and resources.

Not all dairy-free options will be safe for every dairy-allergic person whether it’s because of cross-contamination or other allergens in the item (my list includes almond and coconut containing products, but no other nuts)). Be sure to do your own research, make phone calls to manufacturers if you need to, and make the safe choice for yourself or child. This list is also not exhaustive. There are new products coming to market every day and you’ll delight in new finds all the time. You can usually hear my squeal in the grocery store when I find one.
