Dairy Allergy

Products that are in the Dairy Allergy TasterieBoxes must be made without using any dairy. The manufacturer is required to verify that the products as well as the ingredients used to make these products do not have dairy. If the facility processes dairy or if shared equipment is used, the manufacturer must verify that strict allergen control processes, including testing for residues, are in place to prevent cross contact and cross contamination. If you would like to learn more about our allergen control screening, please contact us at info@tasterie.com. Please view our ingredients disclaimer.

Dairy can be a major source of calcium, vitamin D and protein in the diet. Milk protein can easily be made up for with other sources of protein in the diet such as poultry, fish, red meat and beans.

It is very important to find a substitute for milk, however, because both calcium deficiency and vitamin D deficiency can have severe consequences on bones and teeth.
