Dairy Alternatives


The lists below are non-dairy shopping list suggestions ONLY.  General brands have been listed, though only select varieties may be non-dairy (made without dairy ingredients, including lactose, casein, and whey) or dairy-free. For a list of non-dairy brands with varieties, company names, websites, links, and special diet information (no gluten, no soy, no egg) see our No Dairy Product Lists, available in a downloadable PDF format.

Also, product ingredients do change frequently, and products are added and removed from the market regularly. Although we will do our best to keep this information updated, our content cannot be guaranteed. With this in mind, always double-check the ingredients and allergens of every product to avoid any doubt before purchase. Always check the ingredient statement prior to consumption. 

Cross contamination of food allergens should always be assumed in manufacturing.  Most of the products listed could be at risk for cross contamination, and therefore may contain trace amounts of milk.  If cross contamination is a concern, be sure to contact the manufacturer directly prior to consumption.

Up-to-Date Product Lists.  We are unable to update these online listings on a regular basis. For our most current and complete product listings, see our No Dairy Product Lists
