Just to set the record straight, our donuts are 100 percent DF (dairy free) meaning whether you are lactose intolerant or have a milk or dairy allergy (because they are different) our donuts are safe for your consumption and utter enjoyment.
There is a lot of confusion over allergies and intolerances and the difference between the two. Even doctors can find it difficult to pinpoint whether a patient has a dairy allergy or a lactose intolerance. Health Direct defines lactose intolerance as; “the inability to digest lactose, the main sugar found in milk and in dairy products made from milk, including yoghurt, ice cream, soft cheeses and butter.” Confusingly lactose intolerance is also sometimes referred to as a dairy intolerance, which is again different from a milk or dairy allergy. According to Mayo Clinic; a milk allergy is an abnormal response by the body’s immune system to milk and products containing milk. It’s one of the most common food allergies in children. Frighteningly a milk allergy is very different from a milk intolerance with reactions more severe, in some cases causing anaphylaxis. Diagnostic testing is really the only way to ascertain what is wreaking havoc with the digestion system or your immune system but with the adverse symptoms and discomfort caused by eating dairy, health professionals advise to avoid consuming dairy products in both cases.
Luckily with modern food science and forward thinking and inclusive businesses, (like us, not to brag or anything) people with dairy allergies or intolerances are still able to supplement their diets with a wide range of healthy alternatives and the occasional treat…enter OMG Decadent Donuts.
