What dairy-free bread do we use?
That’s about the number one milk allergy mom question of all time.
And it’s true, milk is in so many brands! So here’s our current fave and why.
For real, finding dairy-free bread for our milk allergy kiddo over the past fourteen years has been a chore to say the least.
It’s no wonder food allergy moms continue to ask for recommendations.
And let me tell you, bread is tricky!
Milk is in so many brands.
When people learn we have a milk allergy and want more info on how hard or easy it is to live dairy-free,
I always use the bread example to put it in perspective.
Hey new friend I just met,
imagine going to the store for bread.
You see shelves and shelves of sandwich bread, floor to ceiling, thirty-six feet wide.
Now you have to find a loaf that’s dairy-free.
And even harder, some need egg-free, too.
Now new friend I just met…
out of aaaaaalllll the breads on the store shelf,
there may be only one or two if we are lucky…
that my son can safely have.
So how’s that for fun and convenient? 😉
Sometimes, though, there’s not a one.
Imagine not being able to buy sandwich bread.
So now you know what it’s like to be a milk allergy mom. Kinda.
And that I must be a super mom to keep my kiddo safe and happy…
with his one sandwich bread option.
Go ahead, pat me on the back.
But you’re a food allergy mom reading this, and you get me.
You know that just because we find a good bread option…
doesn’t mean it’s a good one forever.
My blog is FULL of hidden posts saying, “now this brand is safe!”, “nix that, now THIS brand is safe!”.
I almost hesitate to post our favorite dairy-free sandwich bread for the past few years…
because I don’t wanna jinx it, yo!
But I know new milk allergy moms need this information.
And maybe I can even make them chuckle a little.
Allergy mom life is hard, especially without bread.
So here you have it, right now we are fans of certain varieties of Nature’s Own.
I love that this brand has no artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, or corn syrup.
But some contain milk! So contact the company if you need to, k?
I have the ingredients on our bag posted for you below.
Check labels for yourself, though, as ingredients can change.
It also helps that we have a discount store selling Nature’s Own for 99 cents.
Totally not fair, I know.
I’d send you some if I could but it will be expired when it arrives. No good.
My kids love challenging me on how close-to-expired or expired our discount bread is.
Hey kid, it was cheap!
But you can find softer, fresher loaves at Walmart, Target, etc. It’s a mainstream brand.
If this isn’t your favorite dairy-free bread, let us know in the comments which one is!
I’m sure you would help out a lot of milk allergy moms. We’d love to know.
And here’s a dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free bread recipe if you like homemade.
