What is a gluten-free and dairy-free diet?

A gluten-free diet is a diet free from all gluten containing grains. This includes wheat, rye, barley, malt and more. There are also many other foods that are made in factories that process gluten to take into consideration for severe allergies. It is very important to read all labels and check for allergen warnings. For a full list of gluten containing grains check out this list: sources of gluten.

A dairy-free diet excludes all forms of dairy such as milk, cream, cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream. A dairy free diet is different from a lactose free diet as it excludes all forms of dairy not just lactose. Be sure to check all labels for dairy ingredients and allergen warnings.
