There are many reasons why you may need to follow a dairy-free diet, including being vegan or for health reasons. I am on a bit of a health kick at the moment. I had a blip last Christmas but I wasn’t too concerned and then post Christmas into the new year where I blamed winter for the cause of mega comfort eating. But I am determined to get back on track and I have been incorporating more vegan options into my diet just because I want to help my nutritional levels. I usually get a mixed response when I mention that I am veering towards a plant based diet. It’s like a marmite thing you either mind it or don’t. Although I haven’t yet decided whether I want to fully follow a vegan lifestyle, I am keen to reduce my dairy intake. I was recently asked if I would like to Koko Dairy Free made from freshly pressed coconut milk containing the same fat content as semi-skimmed milk. I’ve only recently just learned that coconut is a fruit and not a nut. I genuinely had no idea! I am semi-skimmed milk drinker so I thought I would give this a try. It is also 100% dairy free, lactose free, gluten free, nut free, rice free, soya free, and cholesterol free. I should point that it is not suitable as a sole source of nutrition for infants under 12 months of age as, like cow’s milk, it is not nutritionally complete.
+ Naturally free of lactose, cow’s milk protein, soya and gluten.
+ Suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and coeliacs.
+ Calcium and fat levels matched to semi-skimmed milk.
+ Fresh tasting and versatile to use as drinks and in cooking.
+ GMO Free
+ Free from artificial flavours, preservatives and colourings
