In my work as a food scientist, it was my role to write the ingredients lists and allergen statements for the products I developed. Since my diagnosis of coeliac disease in 2002, I’ve used this knowledge every day while reading product labels to search ingredients lists for gluten. More recently, I’ve added dairy to the list of things to avoid, after one of my children was found to be highly sensitive to cow’s milk protein. This has put me in the perfect position to create this guide for you. You’ll soon be able to answer the question ‘Is it dairy free?’ quickly and with confidence — like I do.
