A potato milk product from the US was arguably one of the most unusual products on display at this year’s show.
Vance’s DariFree is suitable for people who are gluten, soya and dairy intolerant. High in calcium, it is marketed as a cholesterol and fat-free alternative to milk. The powder product is packed in cartons and each carton - which retails for £9.75 - can make up to six litres. The powder has a four-year shelf life and, once mixed, lasts up to 12 days in a fridge.
DariFree is handled by VancesFoods Europe, run by Mariel and Eamon Cotter, who found it while looking for products for their daughter’s dietary needs.
