Living on a Dairy Free Diet is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people are experiencing symptoms of intolerance/allergy to dairy products. So which is it…allergy or intolerance? Well, a cow’s milk allergy is an immune response to one or more of the proteins in cow's milk (so either albumin, casein or whey). So when cow's milk is consumed, the immune system identifies the protein as dangerous and the body defends itself against them. These responses can be triggered by a tiny amount of the milk protein and will usually be instant. So if you are ‘allergic’ to dairy, you may undergo a rapid reaction within the digestive system (e.g. bloating, vomiting or diarrhoea/constipation), skin (e.g. eczema), respiratory system (e.g. asthma) or other responses such as headaches or joint pain.
An intolerance however is less severe but may also bring about digestive, skin and inflammatory problems. The most common cause of this is an inability to digest lactose. All animal milk contains a sugar called lactose. We make lactase in our body which breaks down the lactose in the milk to be absorbed. But some do not produce enough to digest the sugar and without it, the sugar ferments in the gut and causes unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms. Both instances are great reasons why Dairy Free Products would be a good choice.
Either way, if you do experience these symptoms when consuming dairy products then a dairy free diet could be for you. Vitamin Bay have a huge range of Dairy Free Products from brands including Provamel, Blue Diamond, Eco Mill, Rice Dream and Chi to name a few, at low prices making shopping that little bit easier.
