One of the best things about dairy products is that almost everyone can benefit from their delicious, nutritious nature. Even those with specific food sensitivities or needs can find a Hiland Dairy product for their lives.
Go Without The Gluten.
Most people have no problem consuming gluten – a protein found in wheat and other grains. But there are those who suffer from celiac disease or other disorders for whom the consumption of gluten is a serious problem.
Luckily, when it comes to dairy products, gluten is rarely an issue. In fact, if you look at Hiland Dairy’s gluten-free product page, you’ll note that it contains most of the dairy products we produce!
When it comes to lactose intolerance, the percentage of those affected can be quite high. In fact, depending on your genetic background, you may have up to a 90 percent chance of lacking the lactase enzyme that allows adults to consume dairy products containing the milk sugar lactose.
For those who can’t consume lactose, it’s still possible to enjoy milk. Hiland Dairy offers several milk options for those who are lactose intolerant, including a variety of lactose-free, almond and soy milks. We offer several flavored options like our 100% Lactose Free Vanilla and Almond Fat Free Milk or Chocolate Almond Milk, in addition to plain options that are perfect for cooking, baking or on cereal.
