Dairy / Lactose Free Diet

There is a world of difference between dairy free and lactose free, they are however linked.

“Dairy” refers to all milk and milk products (milk, butter cream etc…} produced by mammals including cows. So to be dairy free the product or meal cannot contain milk or any part of milk.

Lactose however is an ingredient of milk, it’s the sugar component in dairy produce. So lactose free food may not necessarily be dairy free.

People who follow a dairy free or lactose free diet will usually be able to eat eggs.
