Holy crap! This is amazing news! I eliminated dairy from my diet after an allergy test was reactive to dairy protein. I already knew I was lactose intolerant before that. Giving up ice cream was difficult, especially because of my long standing love affair with Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Almond dream makes some pretty tasty frozen desserts, but the lack of flavor options was disappointing, as well as the cost per pint.
I do eat dairy now, mostly lower lactose products like cheese, yogurt, cream, and other cultured dairy. I’ve found my threshold; as long as I don’t eat too much I won’t get hives. Even so, I’m still very excited Ben & Jerry’s is on the dairy-free bandwagon. This is great news for people with severe allergies, and of course for Ovo-Vegetarians and Vegans.
