In my work as a food scientist, it was my role to write the ingredients lists and allergen statements for the products I developed. When my daughter was found to have a cow’s milk protein intolerance, this knowledge helped me to confidently buy safe food for her. I wrote this guide so you can do the same for your family.
What people say about the guide:
“I signed up to the ‘Is it dairy free?’ guide after reading about it in Allergy NZ newsletter. My son has multiple food allergies including dairy, and I got him to do the food labelling quiz as well. As a parent, I feel this section was especially valuable and will get the whole family to do it.” — Ann
