Dairy / milk free foods

Some ‘dairy free’ (or ‘vegan’) labelled foods may carry ‘may contain traces of milk’ warnings, or similar. There is no widely accepted definition of ‘dairy free’ – some take it to mean ‘no milk-containing ingredients’ but others see it more strictly as ‘milk free’ (i.e. free of all traces / possible cross-contamination).

Brands who adopt both positions are included in the following list, with qualifications noted where known, but always check current status and individual food labels, as circumstances change often.

Bear in mind the cardinal rule, then: dairy free does NOT necessarily mean milk free / milk-allergy safe. (Though almost certainly does mean lactose intolerance safe.)

The following list focuses mainly on brands producing dairy analogue products – milks, cheeses, yoghurts, chocolate, creams and ice creams.
