Those with severe milk allergies may need to avoid any and all dairy products. This is because milk allergies are usually allergies to milk proteins, and it is possible for traces of milk protein to be found in many dairy products that would seem to be protein free like butter and cream. This can be a problem for those who like cream or milk in their coffee. I revealed already that many nondairy coffee creamers are not dairy free and should be avoided by those with allergies to milk products. Here are some of the best coffee creamers that a truly free of all dairy.
These brands of coffee creamers which contain absolutely no milk ingredients as well as no hydrogenated fats.
