dairy free-NEED HELP - September 12th 2014, 03:49 PM

hey so i'm allergic to dairy now and at first it was okay with lacto-free milk and yogurts etc available but there's not much on offer for sweet things it's surprising how many things contain milk that are sweet things like chocolate, cakes, biscuits and other stuff. i don't eat them often anyway but when i do there's not much to choose from. sort of limited to basic chocolate bars unless i bake my own things and that can be expensive.

also just yesterday my family and i fancied a pizza but the only free-from pizza i could find was only gluten-free so i had to buy tiny dairy-free pizza bases and build my own pizzas at home with lacto-free cheese. yes i could have made my own base (which i normally do) but it was late at night and we were all hungry and craving for pizza. i'm just disappointed every time i find that i can't have what i normally want without making it from scratch and it's turning out to be expensive

i just wondered if anyone has any good suggestions for brands of nice foods because this is slowly starting to suck :/





PS. at least they sell dairy-free ice cream though!

I don't know if these brands are available where you live, but here are 2 things that I found

Amy's Kitchen is known for organic and vegetarian/vegan products

Hey there! For a while, I was a very plant-based vegetarian (sticking to a mostly vegan diet) and Daiya has the best dairy free cheese in my opinion. They're a little pricey compared to regular cheese, but really do wonders for making things like pizza or grilled cheese sandwiches. I'd see if they sell the brand where you're from, as I'm not completely sure.

I'm not as much of a sweets person, but a few good ones would be looking for Dark chocolate brands that are dairy free. There's also a really good ice cream brand called So Delicious, and their products use coconut milk.

If you're lactose free there are pills that contain lactase that you can take before consuming dairy that prevent your stomach from getting upset. You can find them pretty much at any grocery store. They're usually called Fast Acting Lactaid or something along those lines. I definitely recommend them, my mom always keeps several boxes since my whole family is lactose intolerant.

thankyou for your replies but it's an allergy to a certain protein in dairy. lactose is the sugar from dairy. so i need to avoid things containing milk. also now i have to avoid gluten too which makes it even harder to find available foods :/ it's too restrictive!

Were you diagnosed as being allergic to gluten? The reason I ask is a lot of people have been thinking they are allergic to it who actually aren't. I was gluten-free for an entire year thinking I was allergic to it, but it turns out I just have a sensitive stomach.
However if you are gluten free, I mostly ate fruits, veggies, rice, beans, rice cereal, soup, rice cakes with peanut butter, quinoa, potatoes, and sandwiches with gluten free bread.
You can also get gluten-free flour such as rice or potato flour and bake your own food.

it's to help stop my eczema and a lot of non-contact eczema reactions come from food allergies. I'm doing a trial with the most common food eczema triggers which are gluten and dairy allergies. I'm seeing a doctor in two weeks for an allergy blood test (yikes) but for now I'm doing this trial
