Do you or someone in your family have a dairy allergy? Giving up milk and other dairy products may seem hard, especially because there are so many products containing dairy. There are many known sources of milk, but there are also many unknown sources of dairy you should watch out for. Nowadays people with milk allergies though have many options to choose from. There are substitutes for almost all dairy products, which is really helpful. Make a cheat sheet of the different options you have as substitutes to milk and other dairy products. Try different products and tastes until you figure out which tastes suits you best.
Here are some substitute ideas you can try:
- Soy milk: Soy is among the most widely known and used dairy- free product. Soy milk can be found in many different packages (carton, plastic etc.) as well as tastes and brands. Moreover its price makes it highly competitive compared to other milk substitutes, since it is considered very affordable and close to that of cow’s milk.
- Nut milk: Almond milk is the most known among nut milks. Nut milks are high in protein and they are also very good substitutes of milk for baking. Furthermore, nuts are high in “good fats” and vitamin E.
- Oat milk: Oat milk contains a good amount of protein, and it is useful for cooking. It is fairly mild and nutty tasting. However it is not a true drop-in replacement for cow’s milk.
- Rice milk: Rice milk is considered a very good replacement option for people who want to avoid other allergens, especially for young children. This product come in many different flavors and it has a very soft and watery texture. Rice milk though is not a very useful in cooking.
