There are some exceptions to the rule, of course, but it’s a very good idea to look out for a few things when choosing a dairy-Free dairy recipe.
Firstly, dairy products should not contain eggs.
Eggs are the first thing you’re going to notice when you taste a dairy product.
Secondly, dairy is a protein rich food.
A good dairy recipe should be as high in protein as possible, as well as providing the same amount of calories and carbohydrates as a regular dairy product, such as a milk or yogurt.
Lastly, dairy free recipes should have as little added fat as possible.
So, no butter, no cream, no egg yolk, no cheese, no yogurt and no milk products.

Where do I start?
You may have seen a dairy Free recipe on the back of a package or in a store.
However, dairy Free is not a substitute for buying a good quality dairy product and you should look for a variety of options when shopping.
Here are a few suggestions: Look out for the name of the manufacturer.
If the manufacturer is listed as Dairy Free, it means they are very careful to ensure their products meet the standards of the EU and are free from any form of harmful additives.
You can also check the ingredients on the package.
A number of dairy Free products include: organic milk and cheese, organic dairy products, organic and non-organic milk products, eggs, yoghurt, almond milk, soy milk, almond butter, coconut milk, goat milk, egg white and almond milk.
